Membership Requirements: To ensure a thriving community, we have simple requirements for membership:

  1. Each CHS member family must be actively homeschooling or considering homeschooling at least one child.

  2. CHS member families must live locally, including Cary and the Triangle area.

  3. Annual Membership Fee: Our group has a nominal $12 annual fee per family, which covers the cost of maintaining our website. While some field trips or special events may involve fees from external resources, our primary focus is to provide affordable and meaningful opportunities for our members. Most of our gatherings are free, and our hosts do not earn a profit.

  4. Activity Participation: To encourage socialization and a diverse range of activities, each family is required to organize or assist with at least two activities per year. This could be as simple as organizing a gathering at a local park twice a year for children to play. Alternatively, families have the option to fulfill one of the required activity credits by making a $25 donation to CHS. The possibilities for activities are endless and can be inspired by your interests or those of your child. During the joining process, we will provide detailed explanations of the activity requirement. If you need ideas or assistance with planning, our Board or Activity Committee is here to help.

Please note that each member family must earn two Activity Credits during the CHS calendar year (from October 1 to September 30). Serving in a volunteer position within CHS also fulfills the activity requirement. For new members, the requirement may be pro-rated, based on the month of joining.

Join CHS and become part of a welcoming community where learning, socializing, and support flourish. We look forward to having you as a valued member!
