Notes from the nonprofit

Dear Donor: We promise to be diligent in making the best possible use of the assets you make available to us, whether those be assets of time, wisdom, experience, relationships, or money. HCHC stands up for a parent's right to school choice. We support families actively engaged in home-education and/or alternative learning lifestyles. Our Day School program makes social gatherings purposeful and quality education accessible to every family regardless of economic status, race, creed or ethnic background. Research shows that 80% of home educated children are at the same level as the top 15% of public school children. Homeschoolers are also found to display higher levels of confidence and self-esteem. So thanks for supporting our efforts to nurture, build and inspire these young students. We're grateful for your continued support.
