OCHEC VISION STATEMENT
To advance Christ-centered home education* as the standard in Oklahoma by serving the needs and protecting the rights of current and future home educators.
OCHEC MISSION STATEMENT
To promote home education* in the state of Oklahoma through events, communications and resources; to protect the God-given right of parents to direct the education of their children to the glory of God.
*OCHEC defines the terms ‘home education’, ‘homeschooling’, and ‘home schooling’ exclusively as the privately-funded, home-based education and discipleship of children by their own parents or guardians.
Government-funded school-at-home programs such as Epic Charter Schools and K-12, administrated by local public school systems, are ‘public education’ and not considered by OCHEC and Homeschool Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) to constitute ‘homeschooling’ or ‘home education’.
