Membership Information

Thank you for your interest in Greater Waco Christian Home Educators (GWCHE)!  We are a volunteer Christian support group dedicated to helping families who have chosen to educate their children at home. Please read the About Us page for complete information about our organization.

The calendar year for GWCHE is August 1st to July 31st.

Non-members are invited to come and observe one meeting before joining GWCHE.  However, we ask that you join GWCHE if you plan to attend additional meetings.  Dues will remain at the low price of $20 in July ($30 beginning August 15), which allows you access to all GWCHE functions. There is not a reduced fee for joining later in the year.

Membership Benefits

  • Year-round social and academic events for homeschool children and families.
  • Support and encouragement at our general meetings and new homeschooler gatherings.
  • Access to our online forums to keep you connected to local, Christian homeschooling families.
  • Access to the Members Only section of this website.
  • Invitation to our Facebook groups.
  • A complimentary table to sell items at our annual Used Curriculum Sale.
  • Invitation to educational field trips scheduled throughout the school year.
  • Opportunities to participate in academic activities such as the Spelling Bee, History Fair, and Science Fair.
  • Every family can print a GWCHE membership card (find under member links). The GWCHE group number on the card may be used for a membership discount in Texas Home School Coalition (thsc.org) and Home School Legal Defense Association (www.hslda.org). You may also use your card at some local stores for teacher discounts on classroom items.

What does GWCHE do with the dues?

There are three main areas where dues are used: a liability insurance policy, maintaining our website, and facilities rentals. GWCHE purchases a gift for our library each year based on nominations from our membership of material we would like to see made available (for example, one year we bought the Life of Fred series). We also will sometimes have event expenses or subsidize field trip fees. Questions about our finances can be directed to our treasurer at treasurer@gwche.org
