Welcome to the on-line registration form for GCHSA. We're delighted that you've decided to join us on our homeschooling journey.
Our annual family dues for Sept. 2014 through August 2015 are $27. Dues are discounted to $13 for Jan. 2015 to August 2015.
This is only for membership in GCHSA and fees for our group website. Joining GCHSA also allows you to join the statewide organization, Florida Parent Educators Association, for $30 using our group discount code. Some homeschoolers belong to more than one support group, so if you are already a member of FPEA through another group, you do not need to join again through GCHSA. After joining GCHSA, you will receive a discount code you can use to join FPEA thru their website.
Joining FPEA is a good idea especially for first year homeschoolers because they provide a lot of information through their large Guide to Homeschooling in Florida, quarterly Almanac magazine and discounted admission to their annual convention in May.
The first part of this registration is where you enter your contact information and set some preferences for receiving email communication from the group. The second part offers the ability to securely pay your dues on-line.
There are many email preferences, and they can all be modified later on after your registration is approved, so don't worry too much about them right now.
Secure Electronic Payments
We are pleased to offer the security and convenience of accepting electronic payments for your dues. You may pay with a debit card, credit card, PayPal account or an e-check through a PayPal account. PayPal handles our transactions and none of your financial information is ever seen by anyone at GCHSA.
If you want to pay with a credit or debit card, you don't need to set up a PayPal account.
If you want to pay with a direct transfer from your checking or savings account or an e-check, you do need to set up a free PayPal account. Here are instructions on how to set up a free personal PayPal account before you complete your GCHSA membership registration.
Already Paid? Prefer to mail a check?
If you have already paid your dues or wish to mail a check, you can exit at the end without entering payment information. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us if you will be paying by check.
If you prefer to mail a check, please make it payable to GCHSA and send it to Gulfcoast Homeschool Association, Attn: Treasurer, P.O. Box 100254, Cape Coral, FL 33910.
