Creating and nurturing connections and educational opportunities in the greater Milwaukee homeschooling community for over 25 years.


MAHL is a community of homeschooling families who gather for friendship, activities and support. Members come from all walks of life, setting aside differences in approaches to education, curriculum choices, religious and philosophical beliefs, and parenting styles to create a vibrant and inclusive homeschooling community.

Service Area
MAHL serves primarily Milwaukee, Ozaukee,  Washington and Waukesha counties, but has members from Jefferson, Racine/Kenosha and Sheboygan who join to enjoy activities only available in a major metropolitan city such as the ballet, symphony, museum, and science/industry.

Families who have filed a PI-1206 with the DPI, enrolling at least one child as a homeschooler in Wisconsin for the current year. Have a digital copy of your form ready when you apply.


Families new to homeschooling who will be filing the PI-1206 in the fall, or planning to homeschool a kindergarten student who will be five years old by October 1, for whom the DPI form is not required. Use this Form instead of the DPI form in your application.

Membership Agreement

New members are welcomed at any time of year, and will be invited to renew at the same time next year. 

Club Express takes care prompting renewals and collecting our dues.

Every fall, all members are required to forward email confirmation of their annual PI-1206 submission to the Department of Public Instruction to:

$15 per family per year.
You may pay online when your membership is approved (follow the prompts). 
If you prefer, you may mail a check to:
