FCFE has been serving Gwinnett County and surrounding areas for over 30 years! Beginning in 1986 and becoming incorporated in 1993, FCFE continues to serve, support and encourage the homeschool community. As a non-profit organization, our group consists of a Board of Directors (all members) and a completely lay 7-officer Executive Committee. All our efforts and work are truly from a servant’s heart to minister, uplift and equip each member in their homeschool journey
We desire for each family to form relationships within the group that would then create accountability, fellowship, support and new ideas. Because fellowship is important to us, we do keep our maximum membership to 50 families. While it is possible to create relationships in a larger setting, it’s much more achievable in a smaller one.
Why does FCFE limit their membership?

Why is your focus on the family and not just the mom? Isn’t she the teacher?
We believe God designed the family to work together in all aspects of learning and living. Therefore, the dad and the kids themselves are an integral part of the homeschool success. This distributes the responsibility onto all family members and helps equip the children to “learn how to learn” and how to love it! We recognize in most cases, this does “flesh out” as mom being the primary facilitator, but it's also true that education isn't just 4 hours a day Monday through Friday.
Can I be in other homeschool groups while in FCFE?
Our members are required to limit their membership to FCFE only. This enables the members to remain focused on their obligations to the group, help maintain a strong and healthy organization, and also provide adequate time to create true and lasting relationships.
