Welcome to BHEA!

Blount Home Education Association (BHEA) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide support, information, and encouragement to homeschooling families in Blount and surrounding counties. We operate solely with the help of many parent volunteers. In addition to an extensive, but optional Enrichment program for all grades (Pre-K to 12), BHEA sponsors various clubs, field trips, high school awards and honors, and other activities throughout the school year to enhance the academic program that each participating family provides at home. We offer a wide array of social events for all ages, as well. Check our calendar at the lefthand menu to get an idea of the types of things our leaders and members organize (keep in mind that some things are kept behind the password for security). We consider it a privilege to serve and support fellow families in their homeschool journey.

To request membership in BHEA please select "Request Family Membership" from the "How to Join BHEA" tab on the main menu. The cost for BHEA membership has once again been kept at $25 per family per year (non-refundable), which works out to right about $1.92 per month, although we do not prorate. Renewing members should log in before June 30 each year, pay, and update family details. This will ensure that the communication received from BHEA continues to be relevant to each family's unique needs. New and returning members may print out a new BHEA Membership card after logging in with which to take advantage of the many, many discounts and special opportunities for homeschoolers in this area.
