We are so glad that you are interested in learning more about becoming a member of Big Country Home Educators, which serves over 10 counties and 25 cities. We look forward to working with you to enrich your homeschool experience.
Whether you are new to homeschooling or a seasoned veteran, BCHE can afford you many benefits that will enrich your family’s home schooling experience. In addition to educational field trips and fun special events, members of BCHE enjoy the following benefits of membership:
Our activities include, but are not limited to:
An annual membership runs from June 1st of one year through May 31st of the next year, regardless of when you join. Memberships are per family and paid annually. Some of our events are open to the public, but most require membership and some require an additional fee. Membership and attendance eligibility applies to your immediate family (those living within your household) only. Families who also have public/private school kids are welcome to bring them along for non-age specific (family) events (i.e. campout, skate & bowl, field day), however our age-specific events/classes (sports, teen nights, and any event that is not listed as a family event) are for homeschooled kiddos only.
Standard Membership: $105 + four-hour service agreement (EARLY DISCOUNT: $20 OFF BEFORE JULY 31, 2022) - Membership applies to immediate family currently living in your household. Valid through May 31st of the following year. GRANDFATHER CLAUSE: If you are BRAND new to BCHE, you can join after April 1st of any year and enjoy extended membership through the following membership year.
Non-Volunteer Membership: $225 with NO general service requirement (EARLY DISCOUNT: $20 OFF BEFORE JULY 31, 2022) - Membership applies to immediate family currently living in your household.

REMINDER: some BCHE programs include additional service requirement, which is not covered by the Non-Volunteer Membership. For example, if you choose to participate in Monday Co-Op, you will be responsible for either fulfilling that program's service requirement or for paying that program's opt-out fee.
