WTHEA is a regional chapter of the Tennessee Home Education Association (THEA),
a Christian organization that promotes home education in the state of Tennessee. Membership in WTHEA includes membership in THEA and is open to all who are interested in supporting and advancing the cause of home education. THEA was instrumental in getting the initial laws passed that provide us with the freedom to homeschool in the state of Tennessee and continues to advocate for and monitor state and federal laws affecting our freedom to home school.
WTHEA serves an 18 + county region that is centered around the Jackson TN. area and provides connection between THEA at the state level, and support groups, co-ops, umbrella schools, and individual home educators at the local level. Our mission is to encourage families who are considering or engaged in home education by providing information and resources, advocating for home education freedoms, and building connections for support and communication.
The WTHEA region includes Benton, Carroll, Chester, Crockett, Decatur, Dyer, Gibson, Hardeman, Hardin, Haywood, Henry, Lake, Lauderdale, Madison, McNairy, Obion, Weakley and half of Fayette & Tipton.
