Christian Home Educators of Carroll, Columbiana and Stark Counties (CHECCS)

We are the Christian Home Educators of Carroll, Columbiana, and Stark counties (Ohio). We have/have had members from Tuscarawas, Jefferson, Mahoning, Trumball, etc. CHECCS is a group of 40 conservative Christian families who home educate our children as we feel led by God to do so. We offer co-op classes, field trips, special events, moms nights out, summer get togethers, and more. Recent changes to Ohio law have allowed more educational choices for parents, including private school, public schools, homeschooling, charter schools, and now "cyber charter schools" - officially "community schools" in Ohio.
