Welcome to HOPE for Hidalgo County, Inc!
Home Oriented Private Education (HOPE) for Hidalgo County, Inc. is a Christ centered, biblically sound, home education support group located in the Rio Grande Valley ( RGV) of Texas. We have homeschool families join us from McAllen, Edinburg, Mission, Pharr, Weslaco, Harlingen, and points in between. Through athletic, educational, and social endeavors, HOPE strengthens families in raising men and women who seek God’s heart.
In the state of Texas, home schools have been identified as private schools with all the same rights and privileges if (according to the Texas Education Code) the following legal requirements are met:
- Parents must be teaching in a bona-fide, good faith manner.
- Parents must use a written curriculum.
- Student(s) must study subjects including: reading, spelling, grammar, math, and good citizenship.
When the opportunity arises, HOPE offers families the ability to pool or share resources. Finally, HOPE provides a network for the flow of vital information between the individual home schooling families, local, state, and national organizations.
