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 nine 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.

Dara Halydier is a pastor’s wife, Bible teacher, conference and retreat speaker, mentor, friend and the mother of five grown boys! She homeschooled for twenty-one wonderful years and is now encouraging other homeschooling families by speaking across the nation at homeschool conferences. She is the executive director of Abiding Truth Ministry and the author of the Practical Proverbs series and As They Sit and Stand: A Resource and Guide for Teaching Your Children the Bible. Dara has learned life’s lessons the hard way—experience! The lessons she shares come from truths that she has learned from dealing with chronic pain and a disability, from having moved over thirty times, having four boys with learning disabilities and having overcome a past of abuse and shame to now proclaim God’s grace, forgiveness and freedom. Dara teaches with humor, wisdom, and vulnerability as she reaches out to encourage and equip the next generation.
