Who We Are
The Racine Area Home Schoolers -- RAHS -- is an organization of over 100Christian homeschooling families in the greater Racine area. We have member families from Union Grove, Sturtevant, Franksville, Kansasville, Burlington, Twin Lakes, Kenosha, West Allis, South Milwaukee, Oak Creek, Cudahy, and Waterford with children ranging from pre-school through high school. We also are comprised of a host of alumni that have home school graduates. RAHS is made up of families who recognize that the education and nurture of children in all phases of life is the God given responsibility of the parents.
The purpose of RAHS is to provide mutual support and encouragement between families who choose to educate their children in the home, to promote the sharing of information about homeschooling and to organize educational opportunities that may be difficult for individual families to provide for themselves.
We gain strength, ideas, and encouragement from one another. Any event or activity which members make available to the organization as a whole is a way our families have chosen to serve each other. We are all joined together by the common bond of providing the best educational environment possible to our families and in thanksgiving to God for the blessings He has provided. Our success, as that of any homeschool support group, depends on the willingness of members to contribute by volunteering to plan and participate in activities. Everyone is encouraged to share and participate at whatever level they feel comfortable. Members agree to not hinder our Statement of Faith, board members and leadership are in agreement with our Statement of Faith.
RAHS can provide you with:
- Support and encouragement from other homeschooling parents
- Answers to questions about different curriculum choices
- Ideas to improve your home school experience
- Opportunities to participate in activities with other homeschool children and families
- Friendship and fellowship for you and your children
- Connections and relationships with other families and each other

RAHS is guided by Christian principles. All may attend with the understanding that those beliefs and principles determine the direction and character of our group. Leadership roles are held by those who agree to our "Statement of Faith".
