How to Join Planet Homeschool


Welcome to Planet Homeschool!

We’re delighted you’re interested in joining our community!

Planet Homeschool is a vibrant, welcoming, and inclusive secular homeschool co-op for middle-school and high-school students ages 10 years to 19 years. Individual classes may be further restricted in age.

We meet on Fridays from mid-September through mid-May.

PHS instructors are passionate about student learning and actively engaged in their fields. Our classes are small, fostering a comfortable, informal atmosphere and close relationships among instructors, students, parents, guardians, and caregivers. At the heart of our community are our awesome youth: the lively and intellectually curious students who truly enjoy being here and learning together. Students have gathering spaces for studying and socializing, and free time to get to know one another. Members may host additional social gatherings and activities such as bowling, movies, or park gatherings.

As a co-op, PHS is made possible by all our talents and labor. All members are expected to pitch in, whether that’s helping with setup and cleanup every Friday or taking the lead on organizing an open house.

Planet Homeschool classes and clubs are open only to Planet Homeschool members.

Before joining, please explore our website and in particular read through our co-op’s Community Expectations, take a look at our co-op’s Course Schedule, and check out our co-op’s upcoming Important Dates.
