If you are new to homeschooling or homeschooling in Texas, the Home School Legal Defense (www.HSLDA.org) and Texas Home School Coalition (www.THSC.org) websites offer a great deal of information on types of homeschool, how to get started, Texas homeschool laws, how to withdraw, etc. You can read this information on their websites without joining.

CenTex Christian Homeschool Co-op
Our Centex Christian Homeschool Co-op is optional for Community members, and we meet on Monday afternoons in Temple. We usually meet for 10 weeks in the Fall and 10 weeks in the Spring, but Corona has definitely thrown us off our stride. We are currently working on a plan to have something this spring, whether it be a camp like last Spring or an attempt to get back to our more normal schedule. At the moment, we are working on contacting people to line up teachers and classes for this Spring. We will keep you informed about when you can register for Co-Op and when you can sign up for classes. Our hope is to have class orientation on February 14th, with classes beginning on February 21, 2022. Meanwhile, make sure you've signed up for the CenTex Christian Homeschool Community - that's where you will have the opportunity to join like-minded families on field trips, park days, etc., and be eligible to join Co-op once registration opens.
Please stay tuned for more information regarding the Spring 2022 Co-op Semester.
The CenTex Chargers Homeschool Sports Association represents our team sports and various other competetive activities. We are a sports association started by homeschoolers to serve the central Texas area. We have athletes from Temple, Belton, Killeen, and the surrounding communities, and do not limit our membership geographically.
We currently offer six-man tackle football, volleyball, and track & field. In addition to the sports we currently offer, we are open to offering others if coaches volunteer for those sports.
We are a nonprofit volunteer organization and rely on our parents and sponsors for our existence!
You can find more detailed information about our programs on the Chargers website.
