Welcome to our Website
Christian Homeschool Connection is a network that exists to support Christian homeschool families in Champaign-Urbana and surrounding communities. Our group’s membership includes over a hundred families with children of all ages and with a wide variety of homeschooling styles. We do not meet as a co-op per se, although we do include co-op classes as optional activities through Family Center. Our members also form smaller co-ops among themselves through our Forum, and many of our members belong to co-ops outside of CHC. We have occasional large group gatherings such as picnics in the spring, summer, and fall and ice skating in the winter. Our main purpose is to connect homeschooling families, to enable them to support each other through field trips and social activities, to facilitate contact between new and veteran homeschoolers, a forum for the exchange of teaching techniques and curriculum ideas. It is a place to reach out to others to plan group activities ranging from mothers’ nights out to play groups to co-op classes or anything else members want to do with other homeschooling families. We also inform members of issues and events of interest to homeschooling families in the community and state and we represent homeschoolers to the wider community.
2015-2016 Memberships are being accepted now. If you have any questions please contact the web director at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. If you have questions specifically about the Family Center please direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org For more information about the Family Center click on this informational link.

After your membership has been received and processed, we will get you on the website. Renewing members do not have to fill out a web access form but all new members will have to fill out this on-line form as well. Please write down your user name and password as these are case sensitive for each family. After you receive an "approval" e-mail response (usually within 24 hours), you are then free to access the website which contains many features, including a CHC events calendar, a classifieds section, a forum for discussing homeschool related questions, and a weekly e-mail reminding you of upcoming events.
If you have any questions, please e-mail us at email@example.com. You may also email board member Elizabeth Nicol directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
