The Hill Country Christian Homeschoolers group meets on the far north side of San Antonio in Stone Oak/Bulverde/Spring Branch/Canyon Lake.  Our group offers both a social opportunity for our kids to get together and optional elementary- and high school-aged co-ops.  Our yearly social events include the Back-to-School picnic, Christmas caroling on the SA Riverwalk, Father-Daughter Dance and Promotion Night.  We also offer a weekly Friday afternoon parkday in Bulverde, monthly field trips  and nature walks PLUS monthly Teacher Night Outs for ourselves.   Our co-ops are also extremely popular with the surrounding area homeschoolers.  The elementary aged co-op  called Primary Academic Classes (PAC) meets on Fridays and offers both "fun" and academic classes.  The high school program called Secondary Academic Classes (SAC) meets on Mondays and offers many academic classes and tutors for our older students.  We invite you to come check out our Friday parkday and let your kids meet our kids!  A Statement of Faith is NOT required to join our organization.  Check out our website for more information!
