Missouri Association of Teaching Christian Homes, Inc. welcomes you to our home on the web.

In today’s world, many families find themselves unexpectedly considering home education.

School violence and bullying are on the rise. The political nature of public education has changed. And, now millions of children are at home in the face of the Coronavirus pandemic.

No matter what your reasons are for starting, we’re here to help!

Families may find themselves overwhelmed with where to begin. It is our goal is to encourage you along the way and provide you with valuable helps and resources that will help you make the best decision for your family.

My kids are stuck at home because of COVID-19. Am I homeschooling?

Not really.

Across the country, schools are closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Your children may be at home with you doing school work provided by the school, but it’s TEMPORARY. If you are planning to send your child back to the same school when the doors open again, you are not homeschooling.

But, what if?

  • What if you like the idea of homeschooling and you want to explore your options?
  • What if you don’t want to send them back?
  • What if you explore home education?

We’re here to help!

What About Virtual School Options?

K12, MOCap, and several other virtual schools are viable, school-at-home, public school options for many families. But by definition, they are public school options. Therefore they operate and are subject to different laws and guidelines as home schools (nonpublic, non-accredited).
