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 twelve 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.

James and Tanya Dickens have been married for over fifteen years. James was in private practice as an attorney. Tanya was a successful salon owner, and an international educator. They both were workaholics driven by the possibilities of building an empire. James graduated from Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia as Valedictorian with a full academic scholarship to Duke University Law School. Tanya had opened a new salon in Greensboro, NC. They both were on a path of unmeasured success. Both from small families, they never dreamed of having four kids. Both being die hard entrepreneurs, they never imagined living a “Leave It to Beaver” lifestyle. Tanya had told James that if he was looking for a “stay at home” wife, she wasn’t the one. However, God had a completely different idea of success in their lives. After nearly ten years of marriage, they decided to adopt a child, but God thought it better that they adopt two. One year and three preschools later, homeschooling became the perfect solution for the Dickens family. After becoming a full-fledged homeschool family and serving on local and state homeschool boards, they decided to adopt a son, but God was certain that they would prefer a little boy accompanied by a little sister. James and Tanya have served on the board of North Carolinians for Home Education for three years, and they are currently the president of their local co-op, High Point Home Educators.
