Perry County Homeschoolers - Serving Perry County and Surrounding Counties To educate a man in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society. -Theodore Roosevelt “I heard a bird sing in the dark of December. A magical thing. And sweet to remember. We are nearer to Spring than we were in September.” -Oliver Herford Perry County Homeschoolers - Serving Perry County and Surrounding Counties If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you. -Unknown I homeschool my children not to prepare them for tests but to prepare them for life. -Tamara L. Chilver
 

Welcome to the Official site for the Perry County Homeschoolers

We are a Christian, non-profit, volunteer ministry committed to giving information, guidance, support and encouragement to homeschooling families in Perry County and surrounding counties. We believe God, in His Word, has given parents the authority and responsibility to educate their children in a godly manner. We seek to nurture each parent and child within the group and without. While we do not require that members be Christians, members should be respectful of our Christian Beliefs.

Homeschooling is a great way to teach your children while instilling them with morals and family values.

Support Group Policies:

  • Membership dues are currently $15.00 per family.  This fee will give you membership from now through August 31, 2023. 
  • A Mandatory meeting is generally held in June to plan the upcoming school year and collect dues.
  • Members are expected to participate in at least one activity by volunteering to coordinate or serve in an event or activity. New Members receive a one year grace from service.

We encourage you to become a member to receive the full benefits of the group. Feel free to contact us at [email protected] for more information.

PCHS Quarterly Clothing Drive

Got Clothing?

Clean out your unwanted/outgrown clothing while helping PCHS at the same time!

PCHS has joined a virtual partnership with Community Aid. Although we no longer have a physical donation bin, we will be collecting clothing donations which will be purchased by Community Aid to benefit our support group on a quarterly basis!

These drives will occur the first Friday of March, June, September, and December. I will coordinate a meeting place (for example, Giant parking lot) based on the number of those with clothing to donate. Or if you will be seeing Janel Martin or Diamond Hile at a function within the two weeks prior to the drive date, you may give your donations directly to them.

Please keep shoes bagged separately from clothing.

Do you suddenly have a large amount of clothing to get rid of, or did your children all simultaneously grow out of their clothes in between scheduled drive dates? If a drive is not scheduled to occur soon, contact me directly at [email protected] and I can coordinate a time and place to get your donations.

HSLDA

We recommend that homeschooling families join HSLDA.

Even if you never experience legal trouble yourself, your HSLDA membership will help enable other homeschooling families to get the legal help they need and will help defend our right to homeschool here in central PA.

Membership in HSLDA also gives you personal access to the legal staff; HSLDA's experienced high school, special needs, and Toddlers to Tweens consultants; and discounts through HSLDA's PerX program.

PCHS members SAVE $15 on the HSLDA membership price when you enter our Discount Group code on the HSLDA membership form!
