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 Events and Announcements section acts as our "classified ads" and submissions are provided by our community and by us (as we are able): **our classifieds section is currently suspended for time-sensitive items due to time constraints of the editor...please continue to use our directories for acitivites and resources, which we continue to support with periodic updates**
Events Section acts as an "event page" for upcoming date specific events and popular recurring events in our Portland metro or extended Northwest communities that would be of interest or importance to local Christian home schooling families.
The "Classified" Announcements act like "classified ads" to provide space for individuals, businesses and organizations to announce current educational opportunities available in our area. (Entries are categorized by subject matter, ie "classifed.")
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 email@example.com or go to Submissions for US on the top tab.
Our Help Articles provide "nuts and bolts" how-to guidance, with a local flair, in the following areas:
Homeschool 101 addresses the basics of how to homeschool and the common issues that arise
Unit Fun suggests books, resources, and local sites to implement several themed unit studies
The Editor's Corner will explore current issues in homeschooling offering encouragement and advice.
