Where do you meet?

We meet at Glen Arbor Community Church 204 Church Street West Chicago, IL (See Location with Map)

How often and what time?

We meet on the fourth Monday of the month August through May from 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.

What are your meetings like?

Typically our meetings begin with an open time where members can peruse the library and check out/return materials. This is also time to sign up for any field trip or special events. We then have a time of devotion, a special speaker relating to home schooling and then time for fellowship. Some of the monthly meetings are designed for academic fairs, curriculum review, mom's encouragement and recognition night at the end of the school year.

What kind of resources are available? (i.e., library, field trips, etc.)

THC offers a library which currently has over 100 books, videos, tapes, and games for members to check out. The items are then due at the next meeting. There are also field trips set up by members.  Those interested can sign up at the meetings or through the member arranging the field trip. Monthly newsletters and regular emails to members communicate relevant information and opportunities for families and students.

How many members are there?

Currently THC has about 50 active member families.
