CHES was established in approximately 1989 as a handful of homeschooling families began meeting together for field trips and co-ops. These pioneers began pooling their resources and talents, and in time, the Christian Home Educators of the Sandhills was born.
Today our group consists of approximately 100 families. Our purpose is to provide support and enrichment to homeschooling families in the North Carolina Sandhills Community.
CHES activities vary from year to year and are based on parents volunteering their time, leading groups, scheduling unit studies and field trips. As "our statement of faith says" –
We believe the Holy Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the inspired, inerrant and infallible Word of God and constitutes His complete and final revelation to man and is the best rule by which to live…”
Our mission is to facilitate relationships for home-schoolers through the CHES Group to allow for greater numbers in classroom, field trip, co-ops, and ceremonial participation.
Our vision is to better educate our children through relationships and experiences related to unique learning.
