What is CHEWV?

“Defending freedoms, serving families ... together" is what we’ve been doing since we were first founded in 1990. It’s the bedrock of who we are and why we exist.

Not so many years ago, West Virginians had very limited homeschool freedoms. In fact, legislative issues still arise that threaten the future of homeschooling in West Virginia - more often than you might think. The good news is that CHEWV is committed to doing whatever it takes to defend your freedoms and to serve families all across this great state. We're at the Capitol and in legislative meetings. We're all around the state providing services. We answer family-specific questions. We network with state and national leaders. And we do it "together" - with families like yours.

If you’re not currently a part of CHEWV, we invite you to join with us in the important work of protecting and advancing homeschooling in West Virginia.

"Unless the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it."

Psalm 127:1

We firmly believe that the homeschooling freedoms we collectively enjoy, are the gift of God. Since our inception, we’ve prayed and sought the Lord, asking for His guidance and His direction. Because we believe that parental, religious, and homeschooling freedoms are endowed by our Creator and protected in our Constitution, we advocate from a strong position. As a result, the freedoms of all law-abiding families, Christian or not, are defended.

Our Mission

CHEWV is a ministry established to encourage and support West Virginia families in the exercise and defense of their God-given responsibility and Constitutional freedom to train and educate their children at home.
