The purpose of the group is to facilitate support for Christian parents who are, or will be teaching their children at home. Monthly meetings provide opportunities for networking with other Christian parents who also teach their children at home.
What We Do
Our goal is to be a support for the families in the St. Clair County Christian Home Educators. We offer the opportunity to learn more about homeschooling through a variety of formats during the homeschool year. These meetings are meant to encourage, educate parents, and assist new homeschoolers in their personal endeavor to answer God's call on their family to train up their children in the Lord.
Contact Josh & Nancy Peterson if you have suggestions for a homeschool related topic or for possible guest speaker(s) that would be of interest to the group as a whole.
Our members have had the opportunity to take part in a variety of activities over the years Some of these are part of the SCCCHE framework and some of them are goverened by outside entities. Those activities have included: Master's Lyceum, Physical Fitness classes, Music (Beginner & Senior Bands), Speech Club, Worldview Class, Generation Joshua Club, 4-H, Scouting, Upward Sports & Ultimate Frisbee. Other events that have taken place throughout the years are Math Olympics, Art & Science Fairs, Speech & Word Festival, Spelling Bees, Geography Night and Music Contests (instrumental and vocal). A number of these activities are currently available, however, if you are looking for a particular activity, and it is not on our website, please contact us and we will try to point you in the right direction.
We also have a Field Trip Coordinator who organizes and directs several field trips in and around the local area. These are always a popular part of the homeschoolers curriculum.
