Home Education Association


The HEA is the national not-for-profit, incorporated membership association serving Australian homeschoolers since 2001, when it was established by Colleen and Philip Strange. The HEA is run by a committee voluntarily coming together to lead the association.

We have over 1380 Australian families holding membership with us - you can be one too!

We advocate for home education rights across Australia and are here to support you and your choice to home educate.

The HEA is fully volunteer run and is a not-for-profit organisation.

We rely on membership fees to do the work of the Association.
