Our Mission

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.
