Reaching for Excellence
Among Christian Homeschoolers
"Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms." 1 Peter 4:10
Enrollment in REACH for the school year 2016-2017 is open for new families. There are 3 steps to enroll in REACH Coop. They are as follows:
1. While on the public page, go to the right upper corner and click on "request membership" Complete the application that appears, and make sure you click on "add another child" after your first one to add the rest of your children. We need them all to be registered!
2. Wait for a call or email from the one of the coordinators, Martha Sides or Virginia Jones. We will call within 1 -2 weeks to set up an interview. We use the interview time to get to know you, talk about your testimony, find out what you hope to achieve by being in REACH, how we can serve your family, and how you can bless us as well!
3. At the interview, you will complete the background check Within 2 weeks after the interview, you will be notified if your family has been accepted. Of course, the acceptance is conditional until the background check is completed.
Please contact Martha Sides, REACH Coop Head Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information. A $100 deposit is also required at the time of applying. The check will not be deposited until you have been notified of acceptance.
REACH Co-op is a cooperative organization of about 100 home school families, located in the Clear Lake area (Southeast Houston), who gather together to share our talents for the benefit of our children.
We strive to offer a well-rounded balance of academic and elective enrichment classes to supplement your home school that meet the largest percentage of the students' needs. Please note that we do not issue transcripts or diplomas.
One of our goals is to always offer age-appropriate PE, Social Studies, Art and Science choices in each age group. In the secondary departments, we offer core science and history/language classes. We also offer elective classes for each department/age level that may include, but are not limited to art, crafts, cooking, cake decorating, music, drama, etc.
We are thankful for the wonderful talents of our parents, many of whom are experts in the areas in which they teach!
