Welcome to Seattle Christian Homeschool Co-op! We are a community desiring to assist parents, the ones who are ultimately accountable for training their children (Proverbs 22:6), by providing instruction in a variety of academic, character and creative pursuits from a Biblical, Christian perspective. SCHC is a group of families committed to homeschooling. It is a place where families who are using home education as a tool to disciple their children are encouraged and find fellowship. It is a place where minds are developed, hearts are nourished, friendships grow, and the love of the Lord Jesus Christ is magnified.
Seattle Christian Homeschool Co-op is a ministry of City Calvary Chapel.
We are a mid-size cooperative offering classes from preschool through high school. We are a co-op in the true sense of the word “cooperative.” At least one parent from each family is expected to take on teaching or assistant teaching responsibilities during the year and families also help with set-up and clean-up on a rotating basis.
Central to each day is Chapel, where we gather as a community for worship and devotions led by various classes, students, and families. In addition to classes, which are primarily parent-taught, the co-op offers lunch together in the Fellowship Hall, a student-run espresso bar, Moms’ Nights Out, and special co-op-wide events.
We pray that the co-op will be a blessing to you in your parenting journey.

Our Mission statement
Our mission as a Christian homeschool co-op is to support families who are raising their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. We use God centered classrooms as a venue to teach children about God. We aim to have a place of fellowship, encouragement and fun for families. While we all may home educate in different ways, on Friday we come together and encourage one another in the centrality of Christ in our lives.
Statement of Faith
As a ministry of City Calvary Chapel, Seattle Christian Homeschool Co-op has adopted the CCC Statement of Faith.
The sole basis for our belief comes from the Bible in its entirety. It is the inspired, inerrant word of God and is the final authority on all matters on which it bears. We believe the Bible teaches that there is one infinite and personal God who is eternally existent in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
God created mankind to have a loving relationship with Him, but we defied God by sinfully rejecting Him. As a result, each one of us needs God’s saving grace to end our separation from Him. This grace comes as a result of Jesus Christ, who is both fully God and fully man, dying on the cross and rising from the dead. It was upon the cross He completely paid the price of our sinfulness and is now offering the gift of eternal life. If a person wants to receive this gift, he/she must repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ alone for eternal salvation.
As a ministry of City Calvary Chapel, we submit to the leadership of the Board of Elders in regards to issues of theological debate, such as creation. All classes will be taught from a Biblical world view perspective. If a class involves creation, teachers will teach a young-earth, literal interpretation of the Genesis account in accordance with the guidelines of City Calvary Chapel.
