Oregon Homeschool Organizations

Oregon Christian Home Education Assoc. Network

OCEANetwork exists to serve the Lord Jesus Christ by supporting, encouraging, protecting and advancing private Christian home education in Oregon. We are home educating families who volunteer our time to support homeschool families all over Oregon and SW Washington with workshops, conferences and written encouragement. One of our goals is to protect the rights of families to home educate without government interference. We do this by monitoring legislative and congressional actions that may jeopardize those rights. We have been "serving the needs and protecting the rights of Oregon homeschoolers since 1986."
