Welcome to BCHE!

For more than 25 years, Big Country Home Educators has supported homeschool families of the Texas Big Country. Located in Abilene, TX, we offer homeschool families in the area a number of types of support. BCHE is a non-profit Christian led organization, led by an elected board of volunteers. We provide resources in the areas of mentoring, events, and networking to help families have the richest home education experience possible. If you live in West Texas, and are a home educator, we would love to have you join us!

Whether you are brand new to homeschooling, or a veteran, we can help you find friends and resources to enhance your homeschool life. We have teams within our organization that provide support in the form of mentoring, special events, and activities. We encourage each family to engage in the lives of others, and to use the resources at our disposal to help each other.

As we grow and times change, so does our group. Let BCHE be there for you. If you have any questions, please contact us. We would love to hear from you. If you would like to join, please click here. If you would like to learn more, click here.

May God bless you, your family, and your homeschool!
