ENOCH

Who is ENOCH?

Education Network of Christian Homeschoolers (ENOCH) of New Jersey is a organization which consists of like-minded Christians dedicated to observe 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 the alternative to the home. We believe that every family has the God-given, legal and constitutional right to home education in the state of New Jersey, regardless of their philosophy of education or religious affiliation.

ENOCH's Beginning



Why was ENOCH created?

A group of home educators recognized the many difficulties associated with seeking basic information pertaining to Home Education. It became clear that access to information and support should be made available to all home educators in the most efficient manner possible. As a result ENOCH was formed.
