CHE welcomes all homeschooling families into the 2015-2016 school year. It is amazing what the Lord is doing in Johnson County and across the country. Bringing education back to the home and to the parents! With eyes wide open to the world of homeschooling in a time where even more resources are available than ever before. CHE is only one of many growing homeschool support groups in Texas. Branching out across Johnson County to tie in smaller communities and giving them the much needed support and encouraging growth and development of new homeschool support groups and services. Your family is welcomed to join at any time during the year through a membership form, no fees to participate, choose activities that fit your family's needs, and fellowhsip with like minded families.
We are a family friendly network of private Christian Home Schools in Johnson County choosing to provide support one to another through opportunities of fellowship. Our vision is that CHEofJC's activities be an opportunity to serve one another through encouragement, fellowship, and guidance. CHE Members will get to enjoy field trips, curriculum support, family nights, mom's night out, the latest homeschool information and much more!
Family Night events are scheduled every 3 months for fellowship including CHE, their extended families and new homeschool families/friends that we meet along the way. The events are put on the calendar at the beginning of the school year, so you know when they are, what to expect, and the dinner we will be having together.

We add free field trips in on the schedule and we are always posting homeschool days at different businesses as they come up. Keep a good calendar, RSVP, pay for activities in a timely manner, and above all--Don't forget to go!!
MOM'S NIGHT OUT
For those not in the world of homeschooling others do not realize how busy us moms are. Teaching all subjects to multiple children in different age ranges, extra-curricular activities including, but not limited to sports, private lessons, clubs, etc., chauffeuring, organizing, cooking, cleaning, and general happiness of the household.
I think we deserve a special night to relax with friends. Hosted by a mom at least once a month.
TWEEN AND TEEN NIGHT OUT
Teen(13-19) and Tween(10-12) Night Out provides an opportunity for CHE students to also take a break for little brothers and sisters. We have a devotion, dinner, and provide a fun, safe evening. Also hosted by one of our teen and tween families once a month.
CHILDREN'S DAY OUT
A play date designed with the younger age group in mind(10 and under). Hosted by parents with younger children a children's day out may consist of meeting at a park, someone's house, or a business that offers age appropriate play(Jumping Apes) once a month.
CHE Volunteer Community Service (VCS) provides opportunities for all ages to be involved and is beneficial to the character developing in our students as well as fullfills the good citizenship requirements by the state.
