formerly known as
SouthEast Home Education


Accelerate Christian Home Schooling is the Homeschool Support Ministry of Southern Cross Educational Enterprises, incorporating SouthEast Home Education and Homeschool WA.

We provide general and academic support for homeschooling families throughout Australia and Oceania.

Our program is structured, Biblical, and easy to use. We have local staff who understand the registration needs of your Australian state or country.

Please note that we are not a registered school and you may need to register for home education in your local State or country. Should you join we will assist you in the registration process.
