Welcome to CHEF of Oklahoma
(Christian Home Educators Fellowship)!
CHEF is a Christian homeschool association comprised of Christian homeschoolers from the Tulsa metro and the surrounding areas in northeastern Oklahoma. CHEF is a volunteer non-profit 501c3 organization. We are dedicated to supporting and serving Christian home educating families. CHEF functions in a purely volunteer capacity, seeking to promote the preeminence of Christ and a Christian world view in the home, education, and all of life. We desire to be a source of encouragement and help to those who are endeavoring to teach and train their children at home. (Deut. 6:6-8, Prov. 22:6, Eph. 6:4)
CHEF is a family friendly organization with many large families. We are sensitive to the financial burden that homeschool activities such as sports can place on a family. For this reason, CHEF tries to keep the cost of its activities as reasonable as possible.
CHEF offers a graduation for all area members, yearly membership picnic, plus a basketball program for boy and girls elementary through high school age. With an updated website, CHEF seeks to maximize communication through weekly emails generated directly from the site with up-to-date information and links for its members. CHEF also offers monthly meetings, field trips, mom's night out, and other various activities through area support groups.
CHEF is an OCHEC affilliate.
CHEF defines homeschooling to be home based, biblically centered, Christ focused, *parent-directed, **privately-funded, and discipleship oriented.
It is important for Homeschoolers to be affiliated with some type of homeschooling organization which supports their philosophy of teaching their children at home. CHEF will not only provide this support, but also assist the parent/teacher throughout the year if any difficulties are encountered. CHEF seeks to provide encouragement, support, and information for all its members. As a member of CHEF, we strongly suggest that you become a member of our website (www.chefok.org) by registering on the website at no additional cost to you. Our website is where we will keep you up-to-date on events, news regarding homeschooling, and much, much more!!
*Parent-directed: Parents are accountable and responsible for: the selection and implementation of all curriculum; attendance and school calendar; grades, transcripts, and diplomas; and testing and evaluations.
**Privately-funded: Parents are financially responsible for their children’s education. The children are not enrolled in a government-funded school such as K12, etc.
