Shepherd Christian Home Educators
Shepherd Christian Home Educators is a support group serving privately homeschooling families in the Antelope Valley, Acton, Agua Dulce, and Canyon Country areas and beyond. While it is a division of Shepherd Christian School, SCHE is separate and independent with regard to its membership. (In other words, it is possible to belong to one and not the other.) We offer a no-obligation membership with a quarterly newsletter including field trips, group activities, mom’s nights, and information regarding tutoring and group classes. We try to have a planning meeting once each quarter where the attendees plan what will be included in each upcoming newsletter. In this way, what we offer each year is determined by the active members.
Newsletter subscriptions are $20 per year. New members are welcomed any time. Due to the conflict of interest, we do not offer support group membership to those choosing to homeschool through a public or charter school program. We are a Christian Home Educators of California (CHEA) Support Network affiliate and a Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) discount group.
Current SCHE members are invited to join our private Facebook group where members can share ideas and information with each other. Click the icon here:
Shepherd Christian Home Educators support group began in Green Valley, California as Providence Christian Home Educators, founded by Linda Schasch in 1993. The name was changed to Shepherd Christian Home Educators in 2001. It is the longest operating homeschool support group in the Antelope Valley that has continuously sent out paper newsletters to its members for more than 27 years! Some of the students in the early days
of the support group are now parents in SCHE and homeschool through Shepherd Christian School.
