How We Minister
For the beginning home educator, ICHE offers a Beginner's Packet to answer questions and to help new home educators find a local support group. Just Contact Us to request a packet.
For families currently home educucating their children, ICHE serves to network different support groups from all over Illinois for the purpose of sharing information and encouraging one another. Today the network has grown to over a hundred support groups and county contacts throughout the state. For more about Support Groups, check out our Support Group page. We alos, through this website, provide an ever-growing on-line set of resources. We'll keep this pool of resources fresh and ever-growing.
We also sponsor conventions and conferences throughout the year; the largest and most popular event being the annual ICHE State Convention, held every spring in northern Illinois. This event features national speakers on home education, a variety of workshops covering many helpful topics, and an Exhibit Hall jam-packed with curriculum suppliers.
And we sponsor family outings throughout the course of the year such as a Family Camp each September, the Mid-Winter Renewal for mother/daughters in January, and the Father Son Camp each Fall. For more info, check out our Events calendar.
