Northwest Arkansas Christian Home Educators Association
Northwest Arkansas Christian Home Educators Association (NWACHEA) is a Christian group, with families from all denominations, walks of life, and financial levels, united in our desire to teach our children according to God’s Word. We invite any family with the same goals and priorities to be part of our organization.
Some general information about NWACHEA:
There are two branches of the NWACHEA group, in Fayetteville and Rogers.
The Rogers group focuses primarily on co-op classes. The co-op offers a wide variety of subjects each semester, as well as an active teen fellowship. If you are interested in joining the co-op or learning more about the classes offered, please visit the NWACHEA of Rogers website.
The Fayetteville group focuses on field trips, social events (like play days and holiday parties) and other activities to enrich the lives of homeschool families and provide an opportunity for parents and children to develop friendships with others.
