About IAHE

Serving Home Educating Families Across Indiana

The IAHE is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1983 for the purpose of serving the Lord Jesus Christ by supporting and encouraging families interested in home education. We define home education as parent-directed, home-based, privately-funded education.

Our primary functions are maintaining visibility as home educators with civil government leaders, influencing the legislative process to protect our freedom to home educate, publishing information of interest for home educators, and sponsoring seminars and events to encourage families.

The IAHE is governed by a volunteer board of directors comprised of veteran home educating couples. Sixteen regional representative couples are in direct contact with local support groups, serving our families and state as efficiently as possible. Please feel free to contact your regional representative for more information concerning activities in your area. Many other dedicated volunteers contribute their time and energy to make this ministry successful. Our annual, state-wide convention provides a significant portion of our financial needs. However, with the growth of the home education movement, our needs and responsibilities are increasing. Your tax deductible contributions will enable us to continue serving home educating families.
