People start home schooling every day in Tennessee. You may have questions about how to start, how to enroll your child to be in compliance with the compulsory attendance laws, or where to go to get curriculum. THEA was formed to help you get started and continue teaching your children as we work to protect homeschooling freedom.
THEA is comprised of 8 chapters covering the entire state of Tennessee. When you join you local chapter, you become a member of that chapter and of THEA. While THEA exists to support and protect home schooling in Tennessee, our chapters have many member families from the eight neighboring states. Each chapter provides services for local homeschoolers.
Laws and regulations affect what you can do in your home. As long as Tennessee has a compulsory attendance law, families must carefully watch what the legislature is enacting and what the various departments of state government are requiring with their rules and regulations.
