North Carolinians for Home Education (NCHE) was founded in 1984 by parents in order to secure the right to homeschool their children. NCHE advanced legislation that has made it easier for families to home educate in North Carolina. As a result of our vigilance, North Carolina is a great place to homeschool!

From the beginning of NCHE, joining NCHE and becoming a member has been a way that someone shows support of homeschooling in NC and the ministry of NCHE. Anyone who supports homeschooling can join with a donation of five dollars or more. The only other requirement is “a family or household member who homeschools must be in compliance with their existing state law.

NCHE Leadership

NCHE is governed by a board of directors. This board is composed of volunteers who fill one of the 12 designated positions each with a different role. Working with the board, NCHE has several volunteer positions: regional liaisons, multicultural liaisons, and committee members. It takes a lot of work with many hands to accomplish the ministry of NCHE.

NCHE Regions

In order to better coordinate, NCHE divides the state into nine regions. Each region has an assigned number and regional liaison (RL). These RLs are here to answer your questions and to help you find groups and resources in your area. To find out more about your region look under the Community section.
