The North Jersey Home Schoolers Association, Inc (NJHSA) is a Christian organization of local home school support groups (LSGs). NJHSA exists for the purpose of providing encouragement, support and aid to home schooling families in the northern counties of New Jersey; providing an environment in which Christ-centered education may flourish; promoting home education; and laboring to secure the God-given right and responsibility of parents to direct the education of their children. NJHSA defines home schooling as parents directing the education of their own children from home as a base, using whatever means, methods and resources they deem appropriate, but not including full-time enrollment in a day institution.
Membership in NJHSA is open to families who i) are actively home schooling their children; (ii) have paid NJHSA dues for the current academic year; (iii) are members of a Local Support Group (see descriptions at left); (iv) and attest to certain core beliefs by signing NJHSA's Statement of Faith. We seek to ensure that our practices, activities and events will not conflict with a Christian world and life view, including the primacy of the family in God’s plan
Deuteronomy 6:6-7 "These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up."
