NCHE provides two primary ways to reach the homeschoolers of North Carolina with your message, product or service: our annual conference and our periodical.


GREENHOUSE is published by North Carolinians for Home Education (NCHE) and is the only statewide periodical created specifically to keep North Carolinians who support home education informed and encouraged. There are more than 70,000 homeschools in NC.

Our publication schedule is 3 GREENHOUSE issues a year (spring and fall and a graduate issue in May). Each GREENHOUSE is mailed to all NCHE members as well as published online in PDF format. Each article is published separately on the NCHE website on different weeks throughout the year.

About GREENHOUSE Graduate Issue

The GREENHOUSE publishes a special issue in May that celebrates our high school graduates. The issue contains graduation recognitions, graduate ads contributed by families in celebration of their graduate, and articles focused on the topic of graduation. This special issue is a great memento of this celebration. We make this issue available for graduate families to purchase extra copies for those important people in the graduate’s life. As with other GREENHOUSE issues, this special graduate issue is mailed to all members and available to everyone online in PDF at
