Home education is a successful educational option for parents in Ohio and around the country.
Growing at a rate of approximately 8% per year, an estimated 2.0 million children, grades kindergarten through high school, were being home educated in the U.S. during mid-2010 according to a survey conducted by the National Home Education Research Institute.
Locally, over 70 families, representing 200+ students, are current members of KCCHSA.
