Iowa Homeschool Associations
Homeschooling parents may initially feel overwhelmed and may not be aware of other homeschooling families dealing with similar challenges. Parents often struggle when they do not realize that help is available for themselves and their children. Iowa’s statewide homeschool association is perfect for bridging this gap.
Name of Iowa Homeschool Organizations
Home School Iowa (Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators – NICHE) is a statewide organization that has been serving the needs and protecting the rights of Iowa’s homeschooling families since 1992. NICHE (also identified as Homeschool Iowa) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational, religious, and charitable corporation run by a Christian board of directors. Homeschool Iowa membership is open and available to all homeschooling parents in Iowa.
Members of Home School Iowa enjoy the following benefits:
- Eligibility for annual graduation service
- Eligibility for their honor society
- Access to special needs advisors
- Access to Homeschool Iowa’s social media pages
- Huge registration discount to the annual Homeschool Iowa conference
Homeschool Iowa hosts an annual Homeschool Iowa Conference. The inspiring conference is the largest gathering of homeschoolers in the state of Iowa. Attendees enjoy presenters offering practical how-to advice, diverse exhibitors displaying quality resources, exciting programs delivering educational opportunities and networking with other homeschooling families.
Why Join a Homeschool Association?
Homeschooling parents need to ensure they meet the state legal requirements for homeschooling and provide quality education to their child. ‘It takes a village to raise a child,’ they say, and it is true for the homeschooling communities who are doing just that. Homeschool associations are there to partner with parents and assist with the overall growth of their homeschooler.
Most importantly, statewide homeschool associations ensure that parents continue to have homeschooling as an option. They monitor legislative action and protect homeschooling freedoms while informing through a statewide action alert network.
