The North Jersey Home Schoolers Association, Inc (NJHSA) is a Christian organization of local home school support groups (LSGs). NJHSA exists for the purpose of providing encouragement, support and aid to home schooling families in the northern counties of New Jersey; providing an environment in which Christ-centered education may flourish; promoting home education; and laboring to secure the God-given right and responsibility of parents to direct the education of their children. NJHSA defines home schooling as parents directing the education of their own children from home as a base, using whatever means, methods and resources they deem appropriate, but not including full-time enrollment in a day institution. Membership in NJHSA is open to all Christian families, without regard to specific denomination affiliation, who: (1) are actively home schooling their children; (2) have paid NJHSA dues for the current academic year; and (3) Signed NJHSA Statement of Faith and annual Waiver Form. The members of the Board, each member of the ASC leadership team, and other individuals in leadership positions attest to certain core beliefs by signing NJHSA's Statement of Faith. We seek to ensure that our practices, activities and events will not conflict with a Christian world and life view, including the primacy of the family in God’s plan. The purpose of NJHSA is to provide support through disseminating information, furnishing means of contact with other home schooling families, and sponsoring various activities and events to enhance the home school experience.
