We're thinking of moving from Richmond, VA to Wilmington. We homeschool our twin ten-year-olds.

Also, are there many community pools to join? We're pool people.

The City has a few pool options...

City of Wilmington, North Carolina > Community Services > Recreation > Pools

Besides that, you can get pool memberships at places like Pine Valley, Echo Farms, Riptide (Middle Sound area), the Wilmington Athletic Club, Holly Tree, YMCA, YWCA, Watermark Marina, Cape Fear Country Club, etc...and many neighborhoods have pools such as Masonboro Forest, Tyndall, etc..and many folks have pools in their yards.

The public and private schools are pretty good so there aren't a ton of home schoolers, but there are some. It would give you the option of moving into Brunswick Co or even more rural areas where the schools aren't as desirable.

I wouldn't go to a city pool, but maybe that's just me. Never been a big fan of public pools. Most people I know that go to a pool go to either the WAC (Wilmington Athletic Club) or YWCA. Some people go to the YMCA, but I don't know how clean it is. A lot of neighborhoods have their own pool though, and there's always the country clubs, of course. I just didn't list them because most of them have a long waiting list and cost minimum $10K upwards to join. Rumor has it also that O2 Fitness is building another gym with a pool here.

There are many homeschoolers in this area. There are also many different homeschool groups of various sizes. If you visit North Carolinians for Home Education website, you can see lists of local groups by area. I do not know about Virginia homeschool laws, but NC is very homeschool friendly.
