All About REACH
REACH is a cooperative educational ministry of families in Central WI.
Who: Homeschool students who are 12 years or older by September 1 are welcome to participate in the REACH High program. There will sometimes be a few class choices open as young as age 10. For the 2019-2020 school year, REACH is taking a new approach as a co-op. There will no longer be a teaching requirement for parents; most classes will be taught by paid tutors. Only registered students will be allowed on campus and students are allowed to pick and choose any or all classes, either or both semesters.
Why: As Christian home-educators, we are dedicated to the support and development of homeschooling families. Our goal is to provide educational opportunities for our children from a Biblical worldview in a safe and respectful environment.
What: REACH was founded as a homeschool co-op with each family taking turns assuming teaching responsibilities. As of the 2019-2020 school year, REACH is functioning more as a homeschool service, coordinating classes and connecting families with tutors.
When: REACH meets weekly on Tuesdays, September - April. There are 2 semesters, each with 12 weeks of class. REACH High meets 8:50am - 12:00pm with occasional afternoon classes.
Where: REACH meets at Woodlands Church (190 Hoover Avenue, Plover).
How: The process to request REACH membership is explained below. The enrollment fees is $20/student each semester. There are options to save by enrolling for the full year at once and by enrolling early (spring). Enrollment is available throughout the summer but there will be additional late enrollment fees added. Enrollment for the spring semester will open after fall classes have begun.
Enrollment fees are due at the time of enrollment and are non-refundable. Because most classes are now tutor-taught, there will be additional class fees which are due at the time of class registration. Classes are filled on a first-come-and-paid, first-served basis, with a waiting list available.
