Steps for Member Registration

Step 1: Confirm that your family is eligible to join.  At least one of your children must meet the Arizona Statutes Regarding Home Education definition of homeschoolerA family is eligible for membership in CHET-SE if they are required to file the Affidavit of Intent to Homeschool for at least one of their children or have signed an ESA contract (or if your preschool child is 4 or 5 years old, which is under the mandatory affidavit-filing age of 6 years old, and you are homeschooling him/her using parent-directed curriculum, you are still eligible to join CHET-SE.).

  • CHET-SE does not advocate or oppose a parent’s choice to use public, charter, or private school; or any specific home-education curricula.  However, according to our charter, CHET-SE is an organization and resource for parents of homeschoolers.  CHET-SE exists to provide support to homeschooling families.
