Dekalb Christian Home Educators




  • DeKalb Christian Home Educators (“DCHE”) is a Christ-centered homeschool cooperative open to serving the entire homeschooling community.

    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 over 30 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."

    We are a resource that offers weekly diverse social engagement, academic enrichment, supportive community, and parents-as-teachers training. A cooperative of families sharing access to extracurriculars, music lessons, art and foreign language classes, STEM clubs, Girl Scouts, PE, and many activities provided in a traditional school environment. This center would provide mental and human services such as food pantry services and support groups. Student social programming includes science & history fairs, Scripps Spelling Bees, graduations, Field Day, field trips, and community service projects tailored for kids as young as 4 years old.

    We are not a school. DCHE provides Christ-centered meaning instruction based on Biblical principles. 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 Christian to register for our classes. We do not discriminate based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, or physical & mental ability.
