The Blount Home Education Association (BHEA) will conduct its annual kick-off and orientation on Thursday, July 31, at 7 p.m. at the Maryville Church of Christ, 611 Sherwood Drive, Maryville.
The BHEA Kick-Off and orientation is a way for local families to learn about home schooling and the class offerings BHEA provides through its enrichment program. There will be an orientation meeting followed by an opportunity to sign up for enrichment classes.
BHEA is an association of independent home schooling families that formed in the late 1980s to encourage successful home education in Blount County. The organization, which operates with the help of many parent volunteers, provides support, information and encouragement to home schooling families and has over 500 student members. BHEA sponsors many activities throughout the school year to enhance the educational program that each participating family provides at home.
