Our mission:

Our mission is to reach out and connect homeschooler to homeschooler. There is a wealth of opportunity in our area to enrich our homeschooling lives and we do our best to gather those opportunities and make them available to you.

Over the last few years there has been a dramatic influx of new homeschoolers & they are searching for guidance & direction.  We were all once new to this, and would love the opportunity to help in any way we can.  We definitely don’t have all the answers, but we will help you find them!

All members have access to:

1) A local gathering place for all homeschoolers (that is convenient to all sorts of shops!)
2) Study areas for individual or group study
3) Nursery/Social area for moms & younger siblings
4) Coffee, easy, low cost snacks, a place to eat lunch, or take a break during errands and classes
5) FREE First Friday events: Lego Club, Chess/Games, Seminars & free Curriculum Swap.
6) FREE classes on Wednesdays at 10am (eClub, Latin, and Bible memory)
7) Opportunity to sell your homemade goods, books, or products, for only $5/table a day
8) Safe, healthy, hangout location for homeschoolers ages 12 and up (without adult)

Family Membership is only $50/year (+$10/each enrolled student)

or

Individual Student Membership is $30/year.

Class Sign Up:

To sign up for classes, contact each teacher.  You can find class & teacher information on the Classes page.  We are only a facility & the teachers rent the space, we do not employ them.  Each class has separate fees and tuition guidelines. Once you join the CHC Yahoo Group E-loop, you can usually find the info with a quick post search.

The CHC offers classroom space to anyone who would like to conduct a class for the low cost of $5/hour  for smaler spaces, and $8/hour for the larger classroom areas in the back. (Not for profit classes do not pay classroom rent.)

To become a member, you can simply come up to the CHC & fill out a membership form. CHC accepts Checks or Cash, or PayPal to communityhomeschoolcenter@gmail.com

Lastly….

At the CHC, we enjoy many member benefits, but most importantly are the intangibles.
You know them… for instance, a valuable friendship, or a place to belong. We make the community we are in. This is why we have a free Curriculum Swap for items that members are no longer using that they would like to pass on, and why we are passionate about providing a place for a frazzled mom to stop in & rest in the midst of a crazy day & get a tasty cup of coffee & a listening ear. By nature, homeschoolers are hard-workers, non-conformists & truly brave.  It’s so important to support one another.  There are many ‘benefits’ to being part of a community that maybe don’t look like much on paper, but sometimes they make all the difference in someone continuing to homeschool.
These are our favorite ‘benefits’.

In addition, we are always in the process of evolving to enrich our members lives & experience, so please, we welcome feedback about how we can do just that.

We welcome you,

the CHC Board
