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!

A few of this year's activities...

June 29th


Are you considering homeschooling and need some questions answered? Are you a veteran about to move into a new season of home education (middle school...high school...multiples) and you'd like to talk with someone who's already made the transition? This year's Homeschool Open House is for those who have been homeschooling, those about to start, and for those just considering the possible alternatives to public education.

Join us for basic info opportunities, specific-topic speaker sessions, and a resource fair. Come see what it's all about and what classes, co-ops, alternative learning opportunities, sports, arts, and activities will be available to your family in 2018/2019!


As many of you know, our local homeschool community was rocked yesterday by a tragic car accident that took the lives of two precious young girls and left the mom in the hospital with serious injuries. The Lindley family funeral and medical expenses will be extensive and any help with donations will be greatly appreciated. Let us pull together across the community to make a difference in the lives of this sweet, sweet family. You may use the link below to donate--every penny goes to the bank account set up by Friday School Co-Op as per family request. We'll be collecting cards, donations, etc., at BCHE Co-Op on Monday as well. You can also make a cash or check donation and give it to any board member or mail it to PO Box 6861, Abilene, TX 79608.  Please remember to uphold this family in your prayers for comfort, healing, and strength. The road ahead is long.
