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.

NCHE received the following information in an email from Senator Chad Barefoot.
“Every legislative session, the North Carolina General Assembly opens its doors to high school students from across the state to participate in the House and Senate Page Programs. It is a great learning opportunity. Students will witness firsthand how an idea becomes a law through the legislative process. They also get a chance to form lifelong friendships with pages from other parts of the state. Each page is appointed by the President Pro Tempore of the Senate upon the recommendation of a Senator and serves for one week when the General Assembly is in session.Pages have the opportunity to perform many duties that a typical staff member would perform for a legislator such as assisting with committee meetings, serving in the Senate Chamber during daily sessions and participating in activities arranged for the enhancement of their overall educational experience.
I highly recommend the program because I served as a page for the NC House of Representatives in 2001. It was a fantastic and unique experience that I will never forget.”
