Box Tops for Homeschool Groups Questions


My local homeschool group is trying to get approved as a Box Top group so that we can raise funds for our co-op. Every time we call them, we get a different set of criteria for eligibility. They are now telling us that we have to be accredited.

Did your homeschool group get accredited? How does a homeschool group get accredited?

Hi Deana,
No, our group isn't "accredited" and you don't have to.

According to the Box Tops for Education official rules found on their website:

"It is also available to home school associations, containing any class with students from Kindergarten to 8th grade, in the United States organized and operated primarily for educational purposes and have 15 or more students."

Customer service reps may not always know every detail about their company's different programs - especially when it comes to homeschoolers or home schools. Perhaps this is the case. General Mills can change the rules, but I just checked and they still include homeschool groups who meet the qualifications stated above.

Our homeschool co-op just received a check from Box Tops last month.

Politely refer to the Box Tops for Education official rules posted on the Box Tops site. Make sure you thank them for including homeschool groups in their education program too! :)

Honestly, I don’t have any idea what Box Top group would mean in the context of home school. How can a home school get the status of a box top group? What are the criteria for the same? Anyway, the home schools that perform well will certainly get attention. mesa rv parks
