To encourage, support and build up our COMMUNITY of homeschool FAMILIES,
reaching out in the NAME of CHRIST.
Firmly Planted Westside is a one-day-a-week, cooperative organization that focuses on community and homeschool enrichment with a solid Christian foundation.
Co-op families meet for Monday School during a Fall and Spring Term, but we also meet throughout the year for a variety of optional activities: field trips, game/movie nights, holiday parties, summer activities, etc. Co-op members also join our host church in service projects that reach out to the community we live in.
>>> Firmly Planted students (1st - 12th grade) take 3 classes each Monday. Our 2 terms are each 10 weeks long.
>>> Classes are taught by members within the co-op. One adult, per family, stays on campus and participates throughout the day. The participation requirement can be fulfilled in a variety of ways: teaching a class, assisting in a class or operating in one of our Service Positions.
>>> Your oldest child must be 6 years old by September 1st in order to join our Co-op. Our Early Childhood Program (5yrs and under) is open only to siblings of children meeting that age requirement.
All homeschool families are welcome to join us, whether you're just starting out or you've been homeschooling for years. We'd love to meet you and help you get connected!
