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.

Southeast Middlers at Home
Southeast Middlers at Home (SEMAH)
An inclusive, secular social network for Johnston County and Wake County homeschool families with upper elementary and/or middle school age (9-13yo) children. This network is not meant to take the place of the larger area support groups, but to fill the needs of this specific age group in our area. Of course, siblings of all ages are always welcome, but the focus is on making connections between the older kids. Regular meet-ups will be held in the western Johnston County/eastern Wake County area, with a co-op as a future possibility.

Here, we homeschool while continuing to educate and bring awareness of the answers that are out there for accommodation, inclusion, self-advocacy, compassion and understanding instead of pity or intolerance.
