Crossroads Home Educated Children (CHEC, Inc.) is a Christian, volunteer, incorporated non-profit 501c3 organization committed to connecting home school families in Victoria and surrounding areas. CHEC began with a small group of homeschool families in the 1980's.
Per CHEC Bylaws, all CHEC members must be currently homeschooling one or more children as parent or legal guardian, and reside in the state of Texas.
Members are not required to sign CHEC's Statement of Faith, but CHEC Board Members are required to do so.
With the help of member volunteers, CHEC provides opportunities for fellowship, socialization, support and informational exchange among home schooling families.
CHEC members exchange curriculum and resource ideas with the understanding that children differ in response to methods of learning and respond uniquely to various forms of educational material. CHEC encourages the partnering of new home school families with veteran home school families who are able to assist with various resources.
The Crossroads area is blessed with many wonderful opportunities for homeschool families. Please note that CHEC is not a school, and is not affiliated with any school, or cooperative learning organization.
CHEC is not affiliated with any particular church, although Victoria area churches have been gracious about hosting CHEC events - and CHEC is very appreciative for their support.
Additionally, no sports group or sports team is under the umbrella of CHEC.
Currently, the CHEC Yearbook is the only subordinate organization of CHEC, Inc., as reported annually to the IRS.
