What is MTHEA?

Middle Tennessee Home Education Association (MTHEA) provides local support to home school families through instructive and motivational conferences and seminars, co-ordination of local support groups, sports teams, teen activities, an MTHEA graduation ceremony, and an annual Curriculum Fair.

Through MTHEA, you can obtain assistance understanding the law; finding home educators near you; informing you of area meetings, curriculum fairs, and conferences; letting you know of church related schools available. MTHEA also publishes a bi-monthly newsletter, delivered to member's home and through e-copy.
