CCH Activities include:
Community Christian Homeschoolers is a Christian support group
serving families in Alachua and surrounding counties offering
fellowship, support, and encouragement for parents: park days, field
trips and other activities for their children.
CCH began in 1985 with just a handful of families and has now grown
to over approximately 50 member families. The large group meets two
times each year for re-enrollment and an Information Fair.
Our large group is broken down into sub-groups of 5-10 families
each to enable parents and children to get acquainted more easily, go on
field trips and participate in other academic activities. The
organization is simple: volunteer officers and sub-group leaders serve
on a steering committee to guide the large group. Members volunteer to
help plan activities and events.
CCH encourages members to be actively involved and committed.
This will enable the family to benefit from the support group.
Membership is based on:
1. agreement with the
Statement of Faith
2. agreement with our
Purpose for Home Schooling
3. compliance with the
Legal Status of Home Schooling in Florida.
CCH is a
"grass roots" volunteer organization for the purpose of providing
homeschooling support, information and resources to its members. The
members of CCH need to be "like-minded" enough to work together to
accomplish these purposes, but have the freedom to determine materials
and methods of homeschooling appropriate for their own families.
4. recommendation by a family already established (one or more
years) in CCH's support group AND/OR recommendation through an interview
by the Prospective Member Liaison and/or the President.
Therefore, members are Bible-believing Christians who
have similar reasons for homeschooling and are in compliance with the
are committed to active involvement in the organization and are
primarily responsible for carrying out its activities. The
organizational structure of CCH is designed to provide a flexible
framework within which members work together to meet each other's needs
and have the freedom to be creative, try out new ideas, or pursue
interests beneficial to the group as a whole.
The leaders of CCH function as facilitators and
coordinators to enable the members to work together effectively.
