Promoting and Protecting Home Education in East Tennessee

"Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it." - Proverbs 22:6


Rally Day - Mar 31, 2020 - EVENT CANCELLED

Come tour the Capitol, visit our legislators and thank them for their service and support of home schooling. Let's represent THEA by a show of support from our Smoky Mountain chapter.  Help us deliver cookies to our legislators to let them know what we homeschoolers are like.  Let SMHEA know if you come across a high school student we can honor as an Outstanding Student for the 2021 Rally!
