Illinois Christian Home Educators (ICHE)


ICHE exists to come along side families who want to see Christ glorified from one generation to the next.  “The mission of ICHE is to call, encourage, and assist Christian families to trust our trustworthy God through practicing a home-based, family-funded, multi-generational, life-long discipleship that builds Christian character, pursues excellence in academics, nurtures an ever-deepening faith, and impacts our world for Jesus Christ. 

We fulfill this mission by ministering to the Illinois homeschool community in the following ways:

  • Assisting in the formation and support of geographical and topical support groups.
  • Holding special conferences and family outings throughout the course of the year.
  • Leveraging the internet to provide on-line resources and social networking tools to the home school community.  
  • Hosting an annual statewide convention where homeschoolers can learn, swap ideas, encourage each other and meet with vendors and suppliers offering homeschooling resources.

Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA)


HSLDA is the trusted movement leader that makes homeschooling possible by caring for member families and protecting and securing the future of homeschooling.

HSLDA provides: 

  • “Legal Protection – We protect your right to homeschool in court, advocate for homeschool freedom in state legislatures, and work to advance homeschooling in the public arena.
  • Educational Support – We offer personalized guidance and answers for every stage of homeschooling—including getting started, learning disabilities, and high school.
  • Strengthen the Community – Through the combined efforts of our community we make it possible for all families to experience the joys of homeschool freedom.”
