Home Educators for Excellence

About Us

We are  a secular, inclusive homeschool co-op based in the Twin Cities, offering high-quality, professionally taught classes for ages 3-16, and friendship and support for kids and parents alike. 

Everyone who agrees with our policies is welcome at HEdFEx. We do not require any statement of faith, and there is no interview process to become a member. Parents are also required to volunteer at least once a semester to keep our co-op running.  You do not need to tour or meet with anyone before signing up for the co-op, but you are welcome to contact us with any questions.

We meet Thursdays throughout the school year.  Check our calendar for term start dates, end dates, and holidays. Also you are welcome to our Thursday social meet-ups in the summer. 

During the school year, our classes are held at Mount Calvary Lutheran Church, in Excelsior MN. The church offers us a great space:

Heritage Hall

Our main meeting area. Parents hang out and socialize during classes. Kids socialize here before and after class. Also serves as our lunch room. The church also provides free WiFi for parents that may need to get some work done during classes.

Upstairs classroom space

Most of our classes are held in the classrooms upstairs. A volunteer room-parent will escort children to and from classes. There is also an elevator for wheelchair/stroller access.


for our PE and Krav Maga classes.
