Membership in CHALC
CHALC is an umbrella organization of homeschool groups in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The direct members of CHALC are the homeschool groups, not member families. A family does not join CHALC, but they join a CHALC member homeschool group.
As a member of a CHALC homeschool group, you have access to many valuable resources, including homeschool group liability insurance for publicized activities, a directory of evaluators, HSLDA membership discount, CHALC graduation discount, and The Scrawls newsletter.
Please take time to read the Member Benefits page for a full list of benefits and the section "How do I sign up?" below.
For your benefit, the CHALC homeschool group application is now available online for you to print. Mail your application form along with a check made payable to CHALC, PO Box 480, Leola, PA 17540 and email your membership's address information in an Excel file to firstname.lastname@example.org
"How do I sign up?"
Homeschool group leaders are responsible for registering their homeschool groups with CHALC. Individuals receive their CHALC membership through a CHALC homeschool group.
If you would like your homeschool group to become a member of CHALC, you must submit an application for membership. The application is a download pdf form located in the left hand menu. Download, print and fill out this form and mail it to the address below.
To guarantee that your homeschool group members receive all 10 issues of The Scrawls we must have their address information by June 15. If you do not have a complete list of members by that time, submit what you have and as you receive new members into your homeschool group, simply email their names and address information to email@example.com. Then mail the membership fees to CHALC, PO Box 480, Leola, PA 17540.
CHALC homeschool group membership fees for the school year are $20 per family. A new CHALC database is compiled every year.
Your homeschool group must submit a new application every year, if we don't receive your application/membership list/membership fee your homeschool group will no longer be considered a CHALC member homeschool group and will be removed from the homeschool group listing in the back of The Scrawls.
Handwritten address lists are hard to read and may result in errors. Please email your membership address information in an Excel file to firstname.lastname@example.org or attach a typed copy including name, address, telephone number and email address (if applicable) of your members.
Your group will NOT receive a refund or credit for any families that are removed from your group's membership list. Therefore, we would recommend that you do not submit the names of any families that have not paid you for their membership.
If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
