Welcome to the CHOC Board (the Christian Homeschool Online Community Board). We are a local resource directory, how-to guide, and community bulletin board for Christian home schoolers living in the extended Portland Oregon metro area and for any homeschooler needing wholesome activities for their homeschool, near or far.
Please go to Search Our Site if you have a specific teacher or activity you are looking for.
Our Directories provide a yellow-page style, finger-tip index of educational activities and resources useful to Christian homeschoolers located in our area:
Directory of Local Activitieslists classes, instructors, programs, field trips, museums, nature parks, and more, available to local homeschoolers for enrichment of their educational studies
Directory of Local Resources lists local resources that support the homeschool teacher such as curriculum stores, support groups, and homeschool organizations
If you would like your services to be listed in our directories please go to the Submissions for Us on the top menu tab and follow the instructions.
Our Community Bulletin Boards act as "upcoming event calender" and "announcement bulletin board" and are updated regularly by us and by community submissions:
Community Events Calender our new calendar feature acts as an "event calendar" for upcoming date specific events occuring in our Portland metro or extended Northwest communities that would be of interest or importance to local Christian home schooling families. (Entries are categorized by month).
Classified Announcements acts like "classified ads" and "camp bulletin board" to provide space for individuals, businesses and organizations to announce time sensitive or transitory educational opportunities available or for individuals to query our community about homeschool resources. (Entries are categorized by subject matter)
If you have something that would be useful for our community and would like to have it posted on one of our community bulletin boards, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to Submissions to Us on the top tab.
