Enrichment Activities

Enrichment activities an important part of a child's education. NCHE is proud to sponsor enrichment activities, as well as bring to your attention activities we believe may be of benefit to your homeschool.

Sports: The NCHE Athletic Commission

Sports is one of those things that is difficult, or impossible, for an individual homeschool family to do alone. We need the community, especially for team sports. The homeschool sports program has grown from just one or two basketball teams in the 90s to now include: boys baseball, boys & girls basketball, boys & girls cross country (individual & team), golf (individual & team), boys & girls soccer, boys & girls swimming (individual & team), and girls volleyball.

It is a goal of NCHE to provide homeschool athletes with the opportunity to participate on a high school level team similar to what they could experience if in a private or public school. To that end, we established North Carolinians for Home Education Athletic Commission (NCHEAC). NCHEAC operates under NCHE to provide leagues and tournaments in the traditional high school sports.

House, Senate & Governor's Page Program

For many years, homeschool teens have enjoyed the opportunity to participate in the NC page program for the Governor’s office and NC House and Senate. NCHE helps to facilitate this opportunity for teens of NCHE member families by setting aside a week each year as homeschool week and providing help for those who wish to go on their own at other times.

Student Election Assistant Program

The State Board of Elections has partnered with North Carolina’s 100 county Board of Elections offices to invite high school students to work in the polls on Election Day as an election official.  The Student Election Assistant program affords qualified students the opportunity to play a direct role in the elections process while also building out their resumes and college application portfolios and potentially earning community service hours.
