Welcome to ECCHO
ECCHO (Ellis County Christian Homeschool Organization) is a multi-denominational Christian support group for homeschooling families in and around Ellis County, Texas, and was founded in 1987. We currently have about 200 member families with children ranging from infants to high schoolers. We typically offer enrichment classes (for high school and lower levels) during the fall and spring, Mom's Night Out, special fall and spring events, and a variety of field trips and community activities.
For the safety of our member families, full access to our website is for members only.
To Join ECCHO we have 3 steps:
2. Submit background checks for family members (18+) who will be attending ECCHO events. (Parents, Grandparents, Siblings, Etc.) These can be emailed to [email protected] or filled out/turned in at the New Family Open House event.
3. Sign up and attend a New Family Open House - you will find the next available one on the ECCHO calendar. We plan this every three months (or sooner) as needed.
Family dues can be paid by cash, check, or Zelle ([email protected]) at the New Family Open House.
If you plan to join, please read our Statement of Faith, Constitution, and Bylaws before registering. Our values, beliefs, and commitment to our families are very important to us, please reach out if you have any questions.
The purpose of ECCHO is to provide fellowship and encouragement to home-educating families in and around the Ellis County, Texas area, and to be a resource for both new and experienced home-educating families.
Our goal is to provide support, information, networking, and social opportunities to local homeschooling families in a safe, Christian environment.
