TEACH CT - The Education Association of Christian Homeschoolers

About Us

Our Mission

“Advocating for homeschool freedoms; Equipping home educators”

Our Vision

“We envision a Connecticut where generations of families, in freedom, embrace their God-given responsibility to disciple their children through Christ-Centered, parent-directed, home education.”

Who We Are

Our current board consists of homeschooling couples of varying backgrounds and experience. We are dedicated parents like you, who are homeschooling our own children, or have successfully graduated them. Together, we bring years of experience to the table and understand not only the joys and benefits of homeschooling, but the challenges as well. We share a vision to build and protect a strong, Christian, homeschooling community within the State of Connecticut that can thrive, as parents obediently exercise their God-given responsibility to raise their children. We count it a privilege to serve you in any way we can. Most importantly, we share a common faith in the saving work of Jesus Christ and a strong desire to see His Gospel passed from family-to-family and generation-to-generation.

What We Do

Our purpose is to further the interests of home education of children by their parents. To accomplish this, TEACH  provides information and services to homeschooling families and support groups in Connecticut. All sponsored activities and publications are consistently Christian and dedicated to the honor and glory of God in keeping with the Biblical commands of Deuteronomy 6:4-10, Proverbs 22:6, and Ephesians 6:4.

The purpose of TEACH is not to represent, or speak for, all home educators in Connecticut or even all Christian home educators in Connecticut. Nor is TEACH a governing or certifying body for home educators. The focus is to provide information and services to home educators. TEACH sponsors a variety of activities to accomplish its purpose. These activities include, but are not limited to:

  • Aiding in the creation and growth of home education support groups throughout Connecticut.
  • Providing information regarding the legal climate of home education in Connecticut and in our nation.
  • Actively working to protect the future freedoms of home education in Connecticut and in our nation.
  • Promoting the advantages of home education over alternative forms of education outside the home.
  • Helping to promote sound, high-quality, home education programs for home educators that assists them in meeting their children’s spiritual, intellectual, physical, and emotional needs.
  • Reviewing and disseminating home education materials and information considered vital to home educators.
  • Supporting accurate home education research and its publication.
  • Planning and conducting periodic state home education speaking events and other educational opportunities for home educators or potential home educators.

Our Statement of Faith

Our Statement of Faith includes only those truths upon which all true Christians agree. It concerns the Person and work of Jesus Christ as revealed in the Bible. It is the faith once delivered to the saints which distinguishes believers from non-believers. There are many other precious truths taught in the Bible over which godly men have differed in understanding. Therefore, this is not a statement of all that is important to believe, but of all that is essential to believe for Christian fellowship and unity. (Rom 15:7)

  • We believe in one God as having eternally existed in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, as God incarnate, being fully God and fully man.
  • We believe that salvation is offered as a free gift, by personal faith in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ alone, and not by works of man. We believe that all men are sinners and are in desperate need of God’s saving grace through Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that the Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God; that it is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
  • We believe the Bible is the final authority in all matters.
  • We believe that children are a gift of God to their parents, whose responsibility it is to train them in a manner pleasing to Him, not only spiritually but academically and socially as well.
