Home Education and Responsible Teaching (HEART) exists to glorify God through supporting one another in our common conviction to "train up a child in the way he should go." (Proverbs 22:6)  We are an organization with Christian leadership, and as a group, we reflect Judeo-Christian principles and operate from a Biblical worldview.  All home educators, regardless of personal beliefs, are welcome for encouragement, support and information.

HEART Membership requires the following:

(1) Currently home schooling according to Texas state law by teaching reading, spelling, grammar, mathematics, and good citizenship OR mentoring other families after graduating your own home schooled children.
(2) Reading and complying with the By-laws and Guidelines for HEART Sponsored Activities (see links on sidebar).
(3) Completion of Online Registration. Items with an asterisk are required.  Please list only the names of children who are being home schooled; do not list children who are enrolled in a public or private school.  Please mark all that apply under "Sections"; do not mark Board Member unless you are currently serving on the HEART Board.
(4) Payment of Membership Dues.
Upon completion of the application and payment, your information will be reviewed and you will receive access to the website after approval by the Membership Liaison.
