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.

Caryn Hommel, homeschool mom and author, holds a degree in Spanish language and literature from NCSU and taught Spanish in public schools for ten years. Her delight with teaching Spanish using Total Physical Response (TPR) and Total Physical Response Storytelling (TPRS) motivated her to develop a unique DVD-led curriculum to help other homeschoolers benefit from wonderful, brain-friendly approaches to foreign language instruction. She has designed and implemented a summer school ESL curriculum and made presentations to both the Foreign Language Association of North Carolina and the Johnston County Second Language Network. She assists families in the homeschool community by offering private and co-op classes, conducting free seminars and speaking at homeschool conventions. The Hommels have homeschooled since 2003 and have graduated two students. Caryn continues to teach her younger two children and thinks that exploring life and learning as a family is the most fulfilling way to spend your days!
