Welcome to CHARIS

Welcome to CHARIS: Christian Homeschool Advocacy, Resources, Inspiration & Support. We are based in the Aurora/Sugar Grove, IL area, but serve a wide area in the western suburbs of Chicago.

Formerly known as the Kane County Christian Home Schoolers (KCCHS), we are an organization formed in 1986 by a small group of families desiring to provide their children with a Christian education in a loving family environment.

Meeting the needs of the growing homeschool community, CHARIS has broadened its outreach beyond Kane County to provide increasing support to Christian parents who have chosen to educate their children at home as an alternative to public or other private schools (the State of Illinois recognizes homeschools as private schools). There are many membership benefits to CHARIS families, including support group meetings, an active parent-led co-op, graduation, and family activities.

We are glad you stopped by and are happy to answer any questions you may have. Feel free to contact us or arrange a visit to one of our co-ops or family events. We'd love to meet you!

Serving the West Suburban area of Illinois
