We are homeschooling families enjoying a lifestyle of curiosity and learning. CHE members are not organized around a particular curriculum or teaching style, because we recognize that each family knows what works best for them. Many of our members are Christians, but a statement of faith is not required to join Chipola Home Educators. Our purpose is to enrich the educational and social quality of each homeschooling family. We do this by providing field trips and group activities each month.
