Stayed informed on important homeschool issues.

The Indiana Association of Home Educators {IAHE} is a not-for-profit organization, founded in 1983, which supports and encourages families interested in home education.

We define home education as parent-directed, home-based, privately-funded education.

Our primary functions are maintaining visibility as home educators with civil government leaders, influencing the legislative process to protect our freedom to home educate, publishing information of interest for home educators, and sponsoring seminars and events to encourage families.

IAHE Visits the IMPD

Last year, IAHE received several complaints that the IMPD was turning away homeschool graduates. So, we started investigating and researching to see how we could help.

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.

Thank you for your support of the IAHE Home Educators’ Convention!

I was so, so blessed by such an encouraging, well-organized convention, which I know was a labor of love that involved much hard work and sacrifice from all of the IAHE Board Members and the many other volunteers. Thank you all so very, very much! Sara B

Support Group Leader

I’m so very thankful to every person who played a part in pulling together a fabulous convention. I have been homeschooling for 13 years and have attended so many conventions. I almost didn’t come this year, but I felt compelled to show my support for the IAHE. I was almost feeling like I’ve outgrown the need for convention. Boy, was I wrong. The sessions I attended were so relevant and timely, offering the exact encouragement I needed to hear. Angelica G.

Thank you for all of your hard work to put on a fantastic conference! The past few weeks of schooling have been challenging and discouraging to the point that I was thinking maybe I shouldn’t continue with this homeschool journey. I left the conference feeling refreshed, encouraged, strengthened, and energized to keep running the race. Thank you!!! Melanie
