 Welcome to Mid East Tennessee Home Education Association...
serving homeschool families in McMinn, Meigs, Monroe, and Polk counties.

We want you to be informed about the local, state, and national events that are helping shape the future of homeschooling. These are exciting and challenging times. Stop by our website often to pick up new ideas, get the latest schedule of local METHEA sponsored activities, and stay abreast of state and national home education issues. And may God bless you and your family.

 

 

As homeschoolers, we can easily take for granted our rights as parents when in fact, the battle is continuing in the federal and state legislatures all over our country. Since our humble beginnings, primarily in the 1980's, we are now seeing a new generation of parents in the homeschooling ranks who were not around when homeschooling was basically illegal.

Please consider joining Mid-East THEA for support, fellowship, and to maintain a unified voice in favor of our legal right to homeschool. By joining Mid-East THEA you can stay abreast of the latest resources, curriculum, events, and local field trip opportunities. Additionally, find out how you can participate in the process of keeping Tennessee a homeschool friendly state. Join us today!

THEA decided on a definition for a homeschooler in 2011, Definition: THEA considers a K-12th grade student and therefore their parent/guardian a homeschooler if 1) the student’s education is parent-directed & 2) the student is enrolled in a homeschool program as provided for in TCA 49-6-3050, & 3) the student is not enrolled in a) a public school, b) a public virtual school, or c) a private school (except those enrolled in the homeschool program associated with such school).  Dual-credit college courses do not exclude the student from being considered a homeschooler.
