Illinois Homeschool Support Groups
Homeschool support groups in your state are an excellent way to gain more assistance and guidance in your homeschooling endeavors. A regional support group fosters a wonderful sense on community among homeschooling families and allows for more opportunities to exchange ideas, plan group outings, and share in the overall experience of homeschooling! While Calvert supports the development of community between homeschool families, this list does not constitute affiliation between Calvert School and the groups represented below.

ILLINOIS CHRISTIAN HOME EDUCATORS
Illinois Christian Home Educators is a not-for-profit Christian organization composed of families dedicated to the success of home education in Illinois.
ICHE was started in December of 1983 by four Christian families seeking the support and fellowship of like-minded home educators. They decided to form ICHE for the purpose of encouraging the establishment of distinctly Christian support groups; compiling information helpful to the creation of such groups, and making it available to support group leaders.
ICHE is governed by a Board of Directors and is not a membership organization. ICHE is largely staffed by volunteer home-educating families. Its affiliation with Christian support groups is informal; at no cost to these groups. Its annual operating budget is met through the monies received for various publications, books and conferences each year, as well as generous donations from the friends of ICHE.
