ABOUT US: GCCHS, Inc. is an inclusively Christian homeschooling support group. We are Christian in our approach to this group, homeschooling, and life in general. The leadership of this group agrees to a statement of faith prior to serving and agrees to make their decisions for the group based upon it. However, we do not exclude any family that desires to join our group, regardless of spiritual background.
GCCHS, Inc. is led by a volunteer group of seven Steering Committee members. We do not hold regular group meetings, but do have an annual kick-off meeting each August to introduce some of the activities that will be offered in the upcoming school year. Because we are a support group (and not a co-op), it means that all of our events are voluntary. We encourage members to find ways that they can volunteer to help. Activities planned for a given year will take place only if we can find a variety of members willing to help with a given activity.
We support various activities, clubs, parties, and field trips. These events are generally open to all family members, but some activities have limitations such as age of children, number of participants, etc. For more information on typical activities and the group in general, see the "More About Us" link on the left of the page.
If you would like to join this group, please fill out an online application by clicking on the "Request Membership" link on the left. Full payment instructions will follow once your application has been submitted. Additionally, a Liability and Consent Waiver must be signed and submitted as well. The payment and liability and consent waiver are to be submitted together.
Our membership year runs from August 1st to July 31st, but new members are welcome to join at any time of year. Our membership fee is $30 per year if you join or renew during the months of August through December. Our membership fee is discounted to $25 if you join or renew during the months of June or July. If you join during the months of January through May, dues are pro-rated to $15. Dues are to be paid each year in August, with the exception of any member that just joined or renewed during June or July. June or July joiners or renewers will not be expected to pay dues again until August of the following year.
