THEA Membership Levels

Tri-city Home Educators Association Mission Statement:  

The purpose of THEAis to provide resources, support and encouragement for home educators and their families; to sponsor activities in keeping with common Christian values in an atmosphere of mutual service and respect; and to relay information pertaining to home education.

THEA Membership:

Membership is open to any homeschooling family*. We are governed by our Bylaws and Statement of Faith which we encourage every member to read. In order to better serve the rapidly growing homeschooling community of the Bismarck-Mandan area, we have set up three levels of membership. 

*Homeschooling does not include distance learning or public/private school at home as those students are enrolled in a district school or a private school. To qualify as a homeschooling family, you need to meet the requirements of ND Century Code Chapter 15.1-23-01. Some examples of school-at-home programs that are not classified as homeschooling are K12.com, Tech Trep Academy, Oak Hills, NDCDE. Some examples of online homeschol curricula that is classified as homeschooling are Abeka Online, BJU Online, Shormann, Time4Learning. If you have questions about the law and what constitutes homeschooling and what does not, please email [email protected]
