Who are we?

DeKalb Christian Home Educators (DCHE) is Christ-centered, parent-led, educational support group for homeschooling families. We provide low-cost extracurricular and free social events to homeschooling families. We facilitate the social interaction necessary for the healthy emotional and cognitive development of children. For 31 years, we have gathered for mutual support and encouragement by sharing resources and educational opportunities because "we believe that relationships are the key to a quality education." Every Wednesday from 9 am to 4 pm, DCHE offers activities such as Bible Quiz Team, Science Olympiad, robotics, Spanish, and Toastmasters. We also coordinate social events like science & social studies fairs, Scripps Spelling Bee, graduation, Field Day, field trips, and community service projects tailored for kids as young as 4 years old.

Is DCHE a Christian school?

We are not a school. DCHE provides Christ-cenetered meaning instruction based on Bibllical principals. All board members & instructors respect and do not teach theology contrary to the DCHE's "Statement of Faith." Teachers are welcome to pray in Jesus' name at the beginning of each class. However, families are not required to be a Christian to register for our classes. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, or abiliity for membership.

Are you equipped for special needs and developmentally delayed children?

DCHE is not specifically equipped to serve special needs children. We welcome any special needs child(ren) to participate in classes. But before the familiy registers, the parents, group coordinator, and instructor(s) must clarify the needs and agree upon any accommodations. DCHE does not discriminate on the basis of ability, except when a disability or special need poses a safety hazard to staff and/or other children, or when a specific need is beyond the scope of care.
