Welcome to CHESF

Christian Home Educators of Southwest Florida is a group of families dedicated to bringing up our children with a sound education based on love, respect, hope for the future, and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. We’re here to support you in homeschooling your children with God’s guidance through the Holy Spirit. Meetings and activities sponsored by CHESF reflect our Christian principles, yet membership is open to those who do not share this faith.

Homeschooling provides the opportunity to not only give your children a solid academic background that suits their individual learning styles but also to experience life together with them, instilling Christian values, character, creativity, teamwork, service, and other disciplines. It allows us to model for our children a life in relationship with God, walking with him throughout each day and keeping in touch with Him through prayer. Continue Reading Here

Guiding Premise and Personal Acknowledgment

Guiding Premise

Most educational systems are based upon moral and philosophical premises. The pioneering families dedicated to home education established CHESF on Christian ethics as expressed in the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the authoritative Word of God. Meetings and activities sponsored by CHESF will reflect our Christian principles, yet membership shall be open to those who do not share this faith. It shall be the obligation of every member to act in such a way that would not inhibit, offend, or infringe upon the freedom of those who choose to express their Christian faith in CHESF activities.

All events are designed to encourage building FAMILY relationships among CHESF members, providing opportunities for both the parents and the children.  

Other activities, field trips, classes, etc. are posted on the calendar and in our forums which are for members only.
