FAQs

Q:

Where and when does the co-op meet?

A:

The Homeschooling Together Co-op meets at Reedswood Christian Church. Going north on Route 17, take the first right turn (Meredith Dr.) past Riverside Walter Reed Hospital. The church is 0.2 miles down on the left. The co-op meets on Thursdays from the first week of September until the first week of December for fall semester and from the first week of January until the first week of April for spring semester. Classes start at 9am and the last class ends at 2:20p.

Q:

Do classes run semester by semester or for the whole year?

A:

All of the classes run for the whole year, and upon registering it is the expectation of the parent to keep their child enrolled for the full year, as each child enrolled takes a class slot in that class.

Q:

What is the registration fee and how is it paid?

A:

There is a $25 registration fee, per child, per semester. Therefore, if you are enrolling 3 children in the co-op, the registration fee is $75 per semester. The registration fee should be submitted once you enroll into classes, and at the absolute latest the week before classes begin. Children will not be allowed to participate in classes until the registration fees are collected prior to each semester beginning.

The registration fees can be given to, or mailed to, Tracey Esplin at 4288 Cato Drive, Gloucester, VA 23061. Checks are to be made payable to Homeschooling Together.

The registration fee covers all of the costs incurred with the co-op costs (insurance, building donation, and website invoice).

Q:

When are classes paid for?

A:

Classes are paid on the first Thursday of each month, unless you choose to pay for the full semester up front. There is a file folder with each teacher's name, located at the front of the foyer. On the first Thursday of each month, all parents are to put their class tuition fees in the correct teacher file. Please make sure your checks are written out to the teacher, have the student's name and class attached, and are sealed in an envelope.

Teachers do have the right to turn away students with outstanding accounts.

When are the class material fees paid?

Are you required to be actively involved in the Homeschooling Together group to be involved in the Co-op, and vice versa?
