Christian Home Educators Connection
The purpose of CHEC is to support and encourage home educators by providing information and opportunities for fellowship both educational and social. Although CHEC is a non-profit, Christian organization with Christian leadership, membership is open to all those wishing to home school their children.

CHEC has five Elementary Age Groups and one Jr/Sr High School Group. CHEC's elementary age groups are divided into geographical areas, depending on where you live. CHEC's Jr/Sr group is not divided. Once you become a member, you will join the proper small group (possibly more, if you a wide range of children).
