Founded in 1984, North Carolinians for Home Education (NCHE) is a private, volunteer organization active at the state level, serving homeschoolers in North Carolina and beyond.
In order to better serve, NCHE divides the state into nine regions. Each region has an assigned number and Regional Director.
Homeschooling is the view that education is best when teaching and learning are integrated into the relationships and activities of the family.
The oldest form of education, homeschooling was legally recognized in NC in 1988.
Article 39 of chapter 115C of the General Statutes defines a Homeschool in NC. The Division of Non-Public Instruction (DNPE) administers the NC law governing homeschooling practice.

Want to reach NC homeschoolers with your product or service?
Your account is also your way to access your NCHE Membership History Dashboard. This dashboard lets you see your NCHE membership history, donations, event registrations and subscriptions to print and email lists.
NCHE memberships are oriented around a household. Individuals are members of a household. A person and his or her spouse are members in a household. One person is considered the primary person associated with the household. Membership history, donations, and event registrations are tied to households. Email subscriptions, on the other hand, are tied to individual members of a household. The Household/Individual model allows couples to both log into the site and see the donations and registration to NCHE, but each also be on different email lists, according to their interests.
When you visit the NCHE membership dashboard, the system shows your individual information; you are seeing your Individual Dashboard. You can tell it is your individual dashboard because it lists both your first and last name. In contrast, Household accounts are designated by just a last name. If you are looking for your NCHE membership history, event registrations or print subscription, be sure the dashboard is showing your Household. To switch and see your Household information, scroll to the bottom of your individual Dashboard to the category Membership. There you will see a link to your Household's Dashboard. Once you are on your Household Dashboard, you will see your NCHE membership history.
When you log into nche.com and go to "Your Account", you will see information about your WEBSITE STORE account.
Your Website Account enables you to log into our store and download digital files you've purchased, and see your download history.
To access your Digital Files, click on the "Files" tab. There you will find a list of every digital file you have purchased, including your download history for each file.
Downloading and Playing the MP3 Files
To download the MP3 file, right click on the download link. It will open a dialog window, and there will be several choices. Look for “save target as” or “save link as” or something similar.
When you click on the save as command, another window will open so you can designate where to save the file.
We suggest creating a folder to store recordings together. If you have a PC you will probably want to create a folder in the “My Music” folder (found in the “My Documents” folder) or “Music Library.” We suggest labeling the folder a name related to the event of the recordings, for example: “NCHE Conference 2015.”
Once the file is downloaded to your computer, you can double-click the file to play it. The program your computer has associated with .mp3 files will open the file. If your computer does not have a program associated with MP3 files, you will be asked to identify which program you would like to open the files.
To download any of the talks to an MP3 player follow the instructions provided with your MP3 player.
There are some common media file organizers on computer system. You may wish to add NCHE recordings to these media file organizers.
NOTE: Apple prevents iPhone, iPad and iPod devices from dowloading MP3 files from most websites. In order to add NCHE MP3s to an iPhone, iPad or iPod, you will need to download the files to your computer. Then you can use iTunes to transfer the MP3 files to your iPhone, iPad and iPod from your computer.
Open iTunes and click on “music” under “LIBRARY” on the left of the window. The main part of the window will now show any music or talks you have in your library. If you have never used iTunes before, the main window will be empty. Now add the MP3 talks to your iTunes library by dragging them from your newly created folder into iTunes, depositing them into the main part of the iTunes window. All the information about them will now be displayed within iTunes including the talk titles, the speakers’ names, etc.. You can sort the talks within iTunes by clicking on any of the headings at the top of the list. You can also use iTunes to burn a CD that can be played on any CD player.
Start Windows Media Player. Click the Library tab. Your current music library shows up. Click the Add to Library menu, select the folders you want to monitor, and click the OK button. Media Player will then monitor all your personal folders including the folder you created to store the conference MP3 files.
