Especially for our Military Families
Here in NW Florida we have many military families from several military bases who are homeschooling their children. Because of the number of military bases we have here it’s always been a challenge to keep of with this often transitional population and to get information out about resources that are specifically available to military homeschoolers. We will begin gathering these resources here so if you have information about resources for military homeschoolers please contact us so that we can make this information available. Please be sure to specify a contact person and information, locations, dates, age groups and if the resource is available only to military families or could include other homeschoolers as well.
The National Flight Academy (NFA) is a series of immersive, aviation-inspired serious games designed to engage students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). The NFA is changing the education equation and increasing our national competitive posture.
NAS Pensacola and Corry Station Child Development Centers provides developmental care to children 6 weeks to 5 years of age on a full time basis.

Drop-in servies for registered children are available by reservation.
The Navy’s Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) is designed to assist sailors with the special needs of their Exceptional Family Members (EFM), at new duty locations. Assistance is emphasized in the assignment process, but also includes family support from Fleet and Family Service Centers. EFMP case liaisons are located throughout the fleet to provide information and referrals, individualized service plans, and case management from one duty station to the next. Special needs include any special medical, dental, mental health, developmental or educational requirement, wheelchair accessibility, adaptive equipment or assistive technology devices and services.
Unless otherwise indicated, facilities are open to all active duty, retiree, DOD employes, foreign nation military and their families stationed at NASP or on orders.
Some require membership or increased fees for DOD. When space is an issue, Active Duty take precedence. Generally, military can sponsor one non-military guest into military only facility. Orange is DOD only.
