What is Home Education?
Home education is when parents take direct responsibility for the education of their children. How it is done can vary greatly according to each family but all families seek to obtain optimum results in academics and character training.
What is HENB?
Formed in 1996, the Home Educators of New Brunswick (HENB) is a Christian non-profit organization made up of volunteers who desire to serve home educators and local support groups in New Brunswick, regardless of religious affiliation.
