About Us

Homeschool Idaho exists to inspire parents to educate their children at home, to promote parent-led education, and to protect home education freedoms in Idaho.

For many decades, Idaho had two homeschool organizations: Idaho Coalition of Home Educators (ICHE), founded in 1992, and Christian Homeschoolers of Idaho State (CHOIS), founded in 1998. In 2018, both organizations merged into one new organization: Homeschool Idaho.

Homeschool Idaho is a 501(c)3 organization and is run completely by volunteers.
