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.

THIS GROUP NO LONGER EXISTS as of July 2013. Please contact HINTSmail@gmail.com for information about another group to join.
The Waxhaw/Weddington Home Educators Are Teaching support group, usually referred to as WWHEAT, was formed in 1993 to serve homeschooling families in the Union County, North Carolina area. Our purpose is to provide information and encouragement for those families who choose to educate their children at home through our web site. Our hope is that members will form close relationships and provide the day-to-day support to one another that helps make the challenging task of homeschooling a little easier.
As a group WWHEAT operates from an explicitly Christian worldview. We invoke God’s blessings on our gatherings, and speakers may briefly share any personal encouragement they’ve received from Him that they believe would benefit others. While we are united by the fact that we all homeschool, we recognize there are a variety of reasons for this decision and that choices in other areas of our lives might be quite different. We do not desire to offend those of divergent beliefs, but wish to make it clear that the group does come from a particular perspective.
