To be eligible to participate in an NCHEAC team or sport, students must be in compliance with North Carolina homeschooling law which state:  a homeschool is a nonpublic school consisting of the children of not more than two families or households, where the parents or legal guardians or members of either household determine the scope and sequence of academic instruction, provide academic instruction and determine additional sources of academic instruction. Students who are receiving some of their education via dual enrollment in the NC Community College system or NC Virtual School are eligible, upon review.  Education provided by public schools, the NC Connections Academy, the NC Virtual Academy or any other public entity that provides instruction without the payment of tuition, disqualifies students from participation in NCHEAC sports.
