Welcome to Homeschoolers EXCEL
We are a secular, inclusive group for school-aged homeschoolers in the DFW area. We provide social and enrichment opportunities, including our co-op.Our Co-op meets every Thursday in Carrollton. We also get together for Field trips, Park meet-ups and other outings.
Our Co-op is currently on hiatus. Please join to keep updated on when Co-op will be restarting.
Our membership year runs from August 1 to July 31. The annual membership fee is $20 for your entire family. With it, you will receive:
- Inclusion in our annual Membership Roster;
- Access to the Member portion of our website.
- Access to Field Trips
Your membership fees are used to cover the costs of maintaining the website, renting the mailbox, and purchasing liability insurance for our facility. Thank you for supporting a local homeschooling community!
Please be aware that our website and email are to be used for all official communication and registration. A majority of our discussion, information sharing, and current events is done via Facebook in a private group for Excel members only.
You can be a member of Excel without attending our coop.
If you plan on attending co-op, please see below for more information.
Beyond EXCEL membership, if you choose to attend Co-op, each family pays a $80 facility fee per semester. The facility fee covers the cost of renting classroom space from Horizon UU. Please note that each family is responsible for this fee, regardless of how many classes are taken beyond the two class minimum per school aged child. Each family is also responsible for taking on a minimum of two jobs at Co-op.
In addition, class fees are set by the teachers, and are noted in the class descriptions. All classes are designed and taught by co-op members, and class fees are used to cover the cost of materials and supplies for the class. Our teachers do not receive compensation for their work. Occasionally, classes may require a textbook or supplies that are not included in the class fee. Check the class descriptions or ask the teacher.
Please understand that facility fees and class fees will not be refunded if your child drops out of class.
