Families for Home Education, the oldest and largest statewide home school organization in Missouri, has been serving Missouri home educators since 1983. FHE is comprised of members – you, not just a board and staff. The purpose of FHE is to protect the inalienable right of the parents of Missouri to teach their own children without state regulation and control.

FHE works to achieve these ends in the following ways:

  • Publishes First Things First, a Guide for the Missouri Home Educator
  • Holds workshops and special events for new home educators – connecting them with the homeschool community and providing materials and information
  • Provides speakers for meetings and events –for support groups, local events, and homeschool conventions across the state
  • Maintains a lobbyist in Jefferson City
  • Maintains relationships and communication with Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) – working hand-in-hand to ensure your right to home educate in the state of Missouri
  •  Publishes a newsletter, the FHE Bulletin, for our members
  • Maintains communication with FHE members through MailChimp messages which include legislative alerts, important information concerning homeschool issues, and notices that the Bulletin Newsletters have been posted on the FHE “Members Only” section of this website.  
    (Note to members: Please add [email protected] to your address book to help keep the emails from going to your junk box.)
  • Provides member resources in the “Members Only” section of the website which include: FHE Bulletin archives, downloadable “Journal/Planbook, and downloadable hour log.
  • Hosts an annual Rally at the Capitol Rotunda  (March 5, 2019) All homeschool families welcome!!

2019 FHE Rally at the Capitol Rotunda - Jefferson City, MO
2/2/2019 9:54:00 AM BY FHE


 Tuesday, March 5, 2019 – 12:30 PM           

We are pleased to announce the special speaker will be Home School Legal Defense Attorney, Scott A. Woodruff, Esq.

He currently handles legal issues for HSLDA members in Arkansas, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Missouri, New Jersey, South Dakota, Virginia, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Scott and his wife, Jane, have three adult children, all of whom they homeschooled, including time in Missouri, and a very special, red-headed 6-year old.

A very talented homeschool band from St. Charles will be providing music. We will also be introducing legislators that are either homeschool graduates or homeschool parents.

Bring family and friends to show your support for homeschool freedoms in Missouri.

This is also an excellent time to visit your state representative and senator. They love having their constituents visit them in their Jefferson City office.

The Rally will begin promptly at 12:30 pm and will conclude by 2:00 pm.

Be sure to allow plenty of time to get parked and to the building.

While they are making improvements to the outside of the building the circle drive around the Capitol building is blocked in the front and the back is only for dropping students off at the west entrance. This means parking is a little more limited and you may need to allow more time for walking to get to the Capitol. Be careful about the time limits on parking, they do give tickets.

There is a security check at each entrance, so allow extra time to get into the building.

At present, to get into the Capitol there are 3 entrances available. One at the West end of the building. One on the south side of the building. This entrance is the carriage entrance and you must enter at the west side of the carriage entrance. The last entrance is at the parking garage entrance at the east end of the Capitol building. You may not drive into the parking garage. It is only for the legislators, but you can enter on foot.
