About Us

Family Fun Events are all great ways to get to know other homeschool families!

Dedicated Homeschool Support

    Are you a new-to-homeschooling parent, seasoned veteran, or somewhere in between?  Mid East THEA is a Christian group of home-educating families who lift each other up in support and encouragement.   Tennessee Home Education Association (THEA) is a state-wide homeschool advocacy group working to protect the rights of homeschoolers in Tennessee, and Mid East THEA is one of seven chapters across the state who advocate locally for homeschool families! 

    Through yearly membership of Mid East THEA, with a small annual due of $15 ($16 through paypal) for the whole family, you will find a variety of support!  Connections to various local co-ops and tutorials, support group meetings, yearly standardized testing available to your family, an annual used curriculum book sale, optional high school graduation ceremony, active facebook page, and private email group, are all included in your membership!  

    New this fall semester, Mid East THEA's very own co-op, Salt and Light Homeschool Support Group in Sweetwater, Tennessee, will offer multiple classes ranging from academics to the arts, while also including sports and P.E.-style classes.  Interested families may contact Salt and Light Homeschool Group directly at saltandlighthomeschool19@gmail.com

    Officers of the Mid East THEA Board are also happy and willing to encourage, advise, and assist your family with homeschool questions and needs.  We invite you to check us out and consider joining the chapter!  Feel free to contact us at the bottom of the website for more information! 

Commencement Exercises with Mid East are both formal and fun!

High School Commencement Exercises

    Mid East THEA offers a formal high school graduation ceremony and reception each May to member-families!  Commencement Exercises include a Senior Social, optional senior portrait in the local newspaper, eligibility for graduating seniors to apply for the Mid East THEA Outstanding Student Award and Scholarship, including recognition at the State Capitol in Nashville during Homeschool Rally Day, optional graduate achievement boards to display at Commencement, and more!    

    Graduation meetings for Seniors and Parents begin in October.  Contact our chapter's Graduation Coordinator below for additional information.

Homeschool families participate in a field trip to the E 911 Emergency Center in McMinn County.

Activities and Field Trips

    Part of the mission of Mid East THEA is to encourage a time of fellowship with local homeschooling families! Field trips to local attractions, museums, and places of interest in the communities of our chapter are offered each year, and organized by a Mid East THEA, enthusiastic and dedicated, homeschool mom!  Member families may check their closed-group email or facebook page for announcements regarding upcoming field trips!  

    Family Fun Events to local swimming pools, bowling centers, skating rinks, and more, are hosted by the chapter through the year as well, giving both parents an opportunity to participate in fun and fellowship, see old friends, and make new ones!   We can also help local homeschool families get connected to 4-H through their county's Extension office.  Homeschool 4-H Clubs are active here!

    Homeschool Rally Day, hosted by Tennessee Home Education Association (THEA), at the Tennessee State Capitol in Nashville each spring is also an excellent opportunity to meet with other home educating families across Tennessee, and speak with your legislative representatives about the good report of homeschooling!
