PCHEA

Pottawatomie Christian Home Educators Association

We are Christianin orientation and leadership, as are most of our members, but we do not exclude anyone from membership on the basis of their doctrinal beliefs.

We are home educators*committed to helping each other accomplish our educational goals, to support one another in love and to strengthen and promote quality home education in our area.

We are families who espouse various educational philosophies, use a wide spectrum of curricula, and teach children at many levels from pre-school through high school.

We are one of many groupsaffiliated with OCHEC - Oklahoma Central Home Educator’s Consociation (www.ochec.com)

*PCHEA believes that home schooling is the privately funded, home-based education of children by their parents or guardians. Therefore, we do not provide membership to families participating in government-funded virtual, charter, or any form of public school at home programs. If your family needs help in transitioning from a government-funded program, we are glad to assist you with information and support.
