Texarkana Organization for Resolute Christian Homeschoolers (TORCH)
TORCH is a local homeschool support group, serving Texarkana, AR/TX and the surrounding area. Organized and operated by parent volunteers, our mission is to support and encourage those pursuing the choice of homeschooling for the education of their children, and to represent the homeschool community in a manner that gives glory to Jesus Christ.
TORCH is a Christian group, operated on the basis of Biblical principles and living faith; we uphold traditional Christian values while welcoming members of all races, nationalities and backgrounds who subscribe to The TORCH Ideals. Our common bond is our concern for the education of our children.
TORCH Meetings are held on the 1st Tuesday of each month at Hillcrest Baptist Church - 5501 W. 7th St, Texarkana, TX 75501.
Visitors and guests are always welcome at our monthly meetings. Each meeting covers a different topic of interest to homeschoolers, upcoming events, and pertinent legal issues.
Throughout the year we have Educational Field Trips, Bowling and Park Days, Holiday Parties and other family oriented activities for our members. Visitors are welcome to attend 3 TORCH events before committing to join the group and pay the membership dues. However, not all of our events are posted on the public calendar.
Membership dues are $30 per year, to be paid once your application has been approved. Request membership by clicking on the graphic on the homepage, or clicking "Join" at the top of this page.
