What is CCHE?
We are a support group of homeschooling families who join together to provide opportunities and activities for our children. We do this through support meetings, enrichment classes (co-op) and many special events such as field trips, science fairs, geography fairs, graduation ceremonies and sports programs to name a few.
Who can participate?
We are open to all homeschoolers in south central Kentucky. We do have a statement of faith and code of conduct that must be agreed upon and signed. We also require that all members comply with the Kentucky laws for homeschooling and must have a copy of the receipt that you sent in your letter of intent.

Academic Classes for All Ages
Reading & Writing
Students have multiple classes and formats to learn and practice reading and writing skills in these classes specific to helping children learn how to use language appropriately and creatively.
History & Politics
From studying world history to current events, our teachers love to work with students to understand society and politics in order to engage their community in an informed and appropriate way.
Some of our classes focus on specific life skills that every individual should know in order to foster independence and confidence. These classes are often some of the most fun and creative classes we have!
Our science classes explore the components of our world and how it all works together. They learn through science experiments and students have a chance to participate in our annual science fair in the spring.
Students are exposed to the arts through art class, drama classes, and music classes as available. They learn through creating art and participating in our annual ThanksLiving drama in the fall.
These classes, such as auto mechanics classes, are made available for our high school students to enable them to learn vocational skills and get a head start in the work force.
Extra Curricular Programs
Students have many opportunities to engage in sports and community programs
The Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) is a groundbreaking and exciting program that transforms local middle and high school students into real, confident entrepreneurs. Through the year-long program, students in grades 6-12 generate business ideas, conduct market research, write business plans, pitch to a panel of investors, and launch their very own companies.
CCHE offers several sports for both young men and women such as basketball, volleyball, and soccer. Contact the CCHE sports director for more information.

From time to time misunderstandings or hurt feelings can arise between members. When
a conflict arises between you and another member, we require members to follow Biblical outlines. Be slow to speak and slow to anger (James 1:19), willing to overlook an offense (Proverbs 19:11)pray before you speak or act (Ephesians 6:18). Matthew 8 outlines a fine pattern for conflict resolution and CCHE follows that process. Seek to speak to the person you have conflict with first. If a problem is still not settled, seek counsel from leadership. In most cases, disagreements are just that: disagreements.
Moving on is usually the best course of action. Strive to be peacemakers
