About Us

The mission of BHEA is to support homeschooling families in Blount and surrounding counties. Started in the 1980's, BHEA is a non-profit organization that strives to provide support, information and encouragement to currently over 400 families. We do this through the help of many parent volunteers.

BHEA sponsors numerous activities throughout the school year to enhance the educational program that each participating family provides at home. Some of these include:

  • Enrichment classes
  • Field trips
  • Park days
  • Sponsored groups and clubs
  • Field day
  • Teen dances
  • Service opportunities
  • Mom's Night Out events
  • Homeschool 101 classes
  • Parent roundtables
  • And much more!

  We consider it a privilege to serve our many BHEA member families and to provide support for their homeschool journeys.
