Welcome to the Fireside!


With the weather very clear at this point, we are canceling classes for tomorrow.
Teachers should be sending an assignment via email for most classes.   Students, if you have things due and can email your work, I'm sure teachers would appreciate it.
Everyone stay safe tomorrow -- and hopefully next week we'll all be back together again!



Our annual Visitation Day will be on TUESDAY, MARCH 17

Families who are interested in Fireside will have the opportunity to come and spend either the morning or afternoon with us to see the co-op facility.  You will meet teachers, students, and other parents, and have a chance to observe classes.  At lunch time, there is an informational session with the director and assistant director to learn about class offerings for next year and answer questions.


For more information, or to register early, email us at    We look forward to meeting you!


Classes are now under way.  Many (but not all) academic classes are now closed for the year, but there are still spots in many elective classes that might be open.  Registration at this time is on a case by case basis.    If you are new to the area or have just found Fireside, please contact us to discuss class interests and openings.  We always try to work with new homeschooling families!



For families that are currently registered for classes, please take a few moments and register on this site for access to the "members only" pages  (Please note that you may ONLY request membership on the website after you've become a registered member for  classes). On the sidebar, you will see "request membership" listed.  You will need to fill out some information that will be sent to the website administration (Laurel Wenson, assistant director);  you will then receive an email confirming your membership on this site.  You will then need to create a family login and password that only you will know.  The "members only" pages will include an online directory for members only, teacher pages for students who might miss a class assignment, optional family pages (you decide!), and much more.  All memberships must be approved by the site adminstrator, so it will be a totally secure environment for registered families only.  Thanks for being a part of the family!


Want to take a closer look? -- Take a "Virtual Tour" of the building that we call "home" each Tuesday. Look for the link on the left sidebar!  


   About Fireside Academy Community Co-op

NEW!!   -- Beginning in September of 2013,  Fireside will be a peanut/nut free co-op!

Classes for the 2014-2015 school year will once again meet in downtown Bethlehem at the Christ United Church of Christ, at the corner of Center St. and Market St.   Entrance will be on Center Street at the door closest to Market Street.  TEACHERS arriving for first period can use the Walnut Street entrance -- all other periods will need to use the Center St. entrance.

The Fireside Academy Community Co-op for Homeschoolers is unique, not-for-profit organization, offering support and encouragement to parents who are teaching their children at home through traditional and cyber-education methods . Fireside Academy helps foster a sense of community for homeschooling families. Our enrichment classes and extra-curricular activities provide opportunities for social interaction with others who understand a lifestyle focused on family and education. Our website and free on-line newsletter keep families informed of upcoming events and opportunities for families of Lehigh and Northampton Counties of Pennsylvania, as well as western New Jersey.
