Founded in 1984, North Carolinians for Home Education (NCHE) is a private, volunteer organization active at the state level, serving homeschoolers in North Carolina and beyond.
In order to better serve, NCHE divides the state into twelve regions. Each region has an assigned number and Regional Director.
Homeschooling is the view that education is best when teaching and learning are integrated into the relationships and activities of the family.
The oldest form of education, homeschooling was legally recognized in NC in 1988.
Article 39 of chapter 115C of the General Statutes defines a Homeschool in NC. The Division of Non-Public Instruction (DNPE) administers the NC law governing homeschooling practice.

Retired Homeschoolers and Homeschool Alumni
This registration is for those who have graduated their last child from homeschool but still would enjoy attending the NCHE conference for those who have graduated from their homeschool (and are not yet parents themselves). We love having you with us! If you volunteer to serve at the conference, you can attend for free. First you fill out your special registration form. You will pay $25, and if you serve at the conference (2 hours per day that you attend or 6 hours for the entire weekend), you will be reimbursed your registration fee. When you first arrive at the conference, ask for your “volunteer verification form.”
