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.

Bob is a retired US Air Force veteran with over twenty years of service on active duty. Bob has served as a deacon and teacher in his church for over twenty-five years. As a Christian, his passion has always been to serve his country. He has made it one of his most passionate efforts to teach believers how to "think like a Christian." He is a constitutional scholar who has spent hundreds of hours studying Supreme Court cases in order to use them to teach others how our government is supposed to work. Over the last fifteen years, he has taught more than 135 homeschooled high school students his course on Constitutional Law and American Government. He has also taught courses on the US Constitution to adults in seminars and conferences in order to equip them to be able to hold elected officials accountable to the Rule of Law. In 2010, he served as a consultant and mentor on the US Constitution for Congressman Tim Scott when he ran successfully for the US House of Representatives. Most recently (2013), Bob served as a senior campaign advisor for his friend Curtis Bostic in his campaign for a US Congressional seat. On September 12, 2013, Bob accepted the volunteer position as the SC State Director for the Convention of States (COS) Project. This is a nationwide grassroots effort to call for an Article V Convention of States for the purpose of proposing amendments to the US Constitution that will limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government.
