Atlanta Alternative Education Network (AAEN)is a not-for-profit cooperative support group of homeschoolers and other educators interested in exploring alternatives to public/private schools. AAEN is staffed entirely by volunteers. Members come primarily from the north Metro Atlanta area, although many members live inside the Perimeter, and some drive all the way from Stone Mountain and Peachtree City to participate in classes and parkday. The lifestyles, religious and philosophical beliefs, ethnic backgrounds, parenting and educational styles of our members vary considerably and we view that as a strength and an opportunity for growth.
