As an active Christian, family oriented group we strive to serve the Lord Jesus Christ, while teaching our children at home.
We are an FPEA (Florida Parent-Educators Association) recognized support group. Our members can join FPEA at a discounted rate.
We offer various activities for students of all ages:
Organized Field Trips
A published yearbook
End of the school year celebration
Science Fair/Invention Fair
Community service events and more.
All the events and activities that you, as members, choose to organize, facilitate, and assist in are what enrich the overall home education experience for our families.
Come be a part of our extended family, we love our kiddos and will love yours too!
The Membership for OCHED cost is per family and it is minimal. Kids of all ages are welcome!
Must come to three group events before committing to the group
Must complete an application
ALL members must volunteer to lead at least one activity per school year. (i.e. set-up one field trip, coordinate one holiday event, lead a craft at holiday event, lead a game at an event, participate in maintenance or clean up of facility etc.)
ALL members must agree to use computer-based communications. In this day in age we no longer use paper so we are rolling with the times. We will walk you through all the technology requirements, we even have an orientation class.
Don't worry, newcomers are gently guided through the process, and hosting an event can be as simple as scheduling a group activity and posting an announcement.
