Desert Christian Home Educators Association (DCHEA) is a nonprofit organization. We are part of the statewide CHEA support network. We serve the private Christian homeschool families of the Coachella Valley and surrounding areas. Our members subscribe to our STATMENT OF FAITH and agree to abide by our CODE OF CONDUCT.
In 1995 a group of homeschooling families joined together to organize Desert Christian Home Educators Association. Their goal was to create a group focusing on educational enrichment and community. Today the mission of our group is very much the same.
Our mission is to encourage, inform, support, and build up a community of private Christian home-educating families.
Our purpose is to encourage families at every stage of their homeschooling journey by providing information about local homeschool laws and answering questions about curriculum and organization. We also seek to support our families by offering educational opportunities such as field trips, co-op classes, and more. Finally, we provide a community of like-minded families to walk this journey together. In all that we do, we strive to bring honor to the Lord.
