Our Purpose & Organization


PEACH is a volunteer, non-profit organization committed to ministering to Christian homeschoolers in Plano and surrounding areas.  PEACH provides the opportunity for fellowship, socialization, and informational exchange among home schooling families.  PEACH does this by:

  1. providing moral and practical support for member families to assist parents in academically strengthening their children and in building character in their children;
  2. exchanging resource and curriculum ideas because we understand that all children are not alike in every aspect of education, especially in terms of teaching material and methodologies;
  3. forming field trips, events, group activities & ministry opportunities;
  4. establishing a network for communication of political and legal information and action in order to:
  • Be aware of and participate in the political process, 
  • Protect the rights of member families and others to educate their own children at home without state regulation or control, and
  • Promote a greater knowledge of homeschooling in our society.

PEACH holds 3-4 general meetings beginning in August at a local Plano church. Speakers and programs are designed to encourage and educate home schooling parents. Visitors are welcome to any of our meetings, so please join us!  Please be sure to check the main page of the web site or the web site calendar for the details of our next meeting.


PEACH encourages its members to join the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) and the Texas Home School Coalition (THSC).  You can request the HSLDA PEACH discount number and join through their web site at . PEACH members are entitled to a $15.00 discount per year from HSLDA. PEACH also makes the “Texas Home School Coalition Handbooks” available for $10.00. These manuals are very beneficial as they cover all aspects of homeschooling in Texas.  Information about membership in THSC and additional resources (including the Handbook) can be found on the THSC web site at .

PEACH is organized with a Board of Directors.  Those who are currently serving for the 2018-2019 year are:

President Tom Cooke
Vice President Carrie Dela Pena
Treasurer TBA
Secretary Todd Anders

Communications Director Kristen Tittle
Activity/Groups/Fellowship Director TBA

PEACH works because there are many members who volunteer to fill the needs of the group.   They are organized in Committees or take on specific tasks on PEACH's behalf.  Some volunteers coordinate groups, some plan field trips, while others help produce our monthly newsletter and website.
