Interested in homeschooling?                    

 Homeschooling is NOT for everyone and if you plan to homeschool, getting to know your state laws and what it is all about is a great place to start. It is important that you make an informed decision. 

POLE Homeschool is NOT for everyone either. The leadership here is firm and we want what is best for you and your student. The best way to get to know us is to gather your questions and call us; 606-638-0032. We will do our best to answer all of your questions. It is important to leave a message and often times it may be an extended call back time due to the needs of our more than 400 students we have throughout KY, WV and other states.

Be careful when choosing a homeschool group and know your laws. If someone wants to go into the military or go to a college, do not hesitate to see what their internal policies are on the homeschooling before you choose. Many times internal policies can be changed and addressed if the proper communication goes and in hand with your desire to attend. Homeschooling is growing but there are still places that are uneducated in homeschooling.

Make sure you do your homework.

I look forward to answering the questions you have and please don't hesitate to leave a message.

CHEK represents over 1100 + family members. In addition, we have approximately 3000 families across the Commonwealth of Kentucky on our mailing list.
