Why join RAACHE?

As home schoolers, we need each other. We need to be connected to the lives of others, especially with those who have things in common with us. God made us not only to depend on him but also to rely on each other... The support that we receive from each other is invaluable.
— Mike Smith

In the 2015 Third Quarter HSLDA Home School Court Report Magazine, the current president of HSLDA gave 8 compelling reasons to join a home school group. These include:

  • providing information and resources for new and old home school educators alike
  • connecting students and making friends through positive experiences such as academics, field trips, sporting events, and social events
  • organizing curriculum exchanges and sales
  • using parental strengths and expertise for teaching courses through co-ops
  • mentoring by experienced educators to those new on the home school journey
  • representing home schoolers in the public arena in a positive way
  • developing new leaders to guide and serve the next generation of home educators  
  • hosting and supporting state-wide conventions, regional fairs, and local support group seminars
