KACHEA (kah-chee-ah) - Together since 1991, our purpose is to glorify God by encouraging and assisting parents who choose to educate their children at home. Made up of over 200 families from northeastern TN and southwestern VA, we have sports teams, a co-op, field trips, activities, photos, a yearbook, mom's nights, graduations, and more. We even offer support (by way of information) for legal homeschooling.
