“Begun in 1990 with fewer than 10 families, Ohio Valley Christian Home Educators (OVCHE) has matured into an active, non-denominational support group serving around 100 families in the Tri-State area near Wheeling, WV.
Our mission is to support and encourage families who are striving to educate their children in a manner pleasing to our Savior Jesus Christ. OVCHE is a volunteer-led, Board of Directors governed support group providing resources for educational activities, encouragement, fellowship, and information to homeschool families and to those considering homeschooling in the Ohio Valley.
Although we are faith based, we are inclusive, allowing families to join who choose not to sign our Statement of Faith. Instead, they may choose the option agreeing not to undermine the sincerely held beliefs of our members and abide by our code of conduct.
By joining OVCHE for $30 per year, privileges include:
• Field trips
• TerraNova Group testing
• Weekly co-op (fee-based; pre-school-12th grade)
• Sport-of-the month
• Members-only portions of the group’s website: ovche.org
• All e-mail/text communications, including announcements of interest to OVCHE members and homeschoolers in general
• Private members-only Facebook group
• Workshops
• Mom’s Night Out (MNO)
We warmly welcome new members. To find out more, please visit ovche.org.

OVCHE Vice President”
