Kingsport, TN - Last updated: 09/13/2020

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.

Re: KACHEA’s Release of Liability


We all are strong believers in the Lord’s sovereign ability to protect and keep us all safe, healthy and injury-free when participating in any KACHEA event or activity. However, in the light of COVID-19 and the additional illness risks it may pose, along with the normal potential risks, we are opting to have participants sign a release of liability. This is a part of what the insurance we are required to carry as an entity has recommended.


We pray that everyone understands that we are not requesting releases prompted by fear but rather because we need to be compliant with the insurance recommendations.


We thank everyone for your understanding and declare over all members of KACHEA:


Psalm 91:10-11 “Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.” (NKJV)


2 Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” (NKJV)



To complete a release of liability form, please see the leader of any event or activity while participating. You can also opt to view and print the liability form, complete it and have it ready to turn in at the next activity in which you or your child participates.

Liability forms are not required for low-contact, low-risk events such as the ABC's of Homeschooling but should be completed for any activity or event in which participants will be close together and interacting for extended periods of time.
