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.

The Graduation of your homeschooled son or daughter is a momentous occasion and worthy of celebration. NCHE invites you to commemorate the occasion with your family and with your community of home-based educators, living in North Carolina and beyond.
NCHE offers a diploma for a student who graduates in the fall or spring and hosts a Graduation Ceremony (in conjunction with the annual NCHE Conference) in May or June. The ceremony lasts approximately one hour. Students may invite a reasonable number of guests.
NCHE also offers the opportunity to recognize the graduate in a special Graduate publication which is published in May.
Current membership is required to purchase an NCHE diploma, participate in the NCHE Graduation Ceremony, or be included in the NCHE Graduate publication. If you are not already a member, you can join for any donation. There is a discount for NCHE membership for three out of the last four years at the time the student graduates.
When the 2016 information is ready, you can learn more and order your graduate ceremony, diploma, GREENHOUSE recognition and additional NCHE graduate offerings at Graduate Central.
If the NCHE graduation ceremony is not right for your family, you can order a diploma only. The 2016 spring diplomas can be ordered on the diploma page.
