About us

CHEC is a support group for Georgia families who homeschool in Cobb, Paulding, and surrounding counties.

Our group began as a ministry of Burnt Hickory Baptist Church in the 96-97 school year and grew as they welcomed new homeschoolers into the group who were not members of BHBC. Currently, our group is not affiliated with any church in particular and has about 60+ member families.

CHEC offers a variety of activities, field trips, ideas, information, parent-initiated and parent-led co-op classes, fellowship and support in your efforts to educate your child. We also act as a conduit for information about services available in our area to homeschoolers such as special classes, sports activities, etc.

We operate a very active calendar and email forum that includes information about the group's current events, seminars and other events in the Metro Atlanta area. The forum allows members to ask for and receive support and advice regarding homeschool issues.

We are unique compared to many area homeschool groups in that we still have a many active members that are "veteran" homeschool families having homeschooled K-12 and also have adult children — these families, as well as other members, will be an invaluable resource and wealth of wisdom and support for you and your family. 

CHEC is a cooperative  homeschool community.  Our dues are $20 per year.  By volunteering for at least one assignment, ranging from tasks that can be completed from home, field trips, or recurrent activities, members receive a $5 discount on the following year's membership. 

Our cooperative efforts allow each member to maintain focus on our homeschooling priorities and personal family activities while also benefitting the group at large.
