Home schoolers to have informational meeting



Families participating in FFHE are offered several events and activities such as field day, physical education activities, sports teams, state testing and more.

FFHE Co-op operates under the Families First Home Educators Association. All participants are required to be members of the association and must pay a $20 annual fee. Registration for the association is available online. A Co-op registration form also must be filled out online if possible.

Forms are available to those who do not have Internet access. Those registering must also pay an additional fee to the Co-op ranging from $5 to $15 to help cover operating expenses and supplies.

“Our family is incredibly blessed by our involvement in FFHE and the FFHE Co-op,” said Kevin Swartzentruber.”

The network of encouragement that God has blessed us with in our endeavor to school our children at home is phenomenal. The old saying, ‘It takes a village to raise a child,’ is a reality in our lives.  FFHE members work together to provide 12-week enrichment classes in the fall and spring semesters for students age 2 through high school. Classes meet every Wednesday. A staffed nursery is also available for younger children.

“Each family supports and encourages the one another as we strive to live out the biblical call not only to educate our children, but to prepare them to fulfill the purpose that God has placed on their lives. We rejoice with one another, we sorrow with one another, we share life together. There is joy of fellowship in the home school journey,” said both Amanda and Kevin Swartzentruber.
