Notes from the Nonprofit

Loving Education At Home is a Christian organization, the members of which are like-minded Christian home education support groups made up of families dedicated to observing the Biblical commands of Deuteronomy 6:4-10, Proverbs 22:6, and Ephesians 6:4.

We promote home education as the Scriptural design for education whereas institutional education is alternative to the home.

We believe that every family has the God-given legal and constitutional right to home educate in New York State, regardless of their philosophy of education or religious affiliation.

LEAH is not a church nor is this organization meant to replace the ministry of the local church to the home education family.
