About Homeschool First

Homeschool First is a secular homeschool co-op that has served Lynchburg, Virginia and the surrounding areas since 2015.

Mission and Purpose

Homeschool First hopes to aid every member in becoming a whole person, and to that end, we offer community events, so that we may build relationships; academics, so that we may build knowledge of ourselves and our world; and service opportunities, so that we may contribute to the people around us.

Our foremost purpose is to serve each other in all things. Our other purposes include offering classes for preschool through high school, field trips, social events for our members, themed “sanity” meetings for moms, and get-togethers for dads. We periodically offer city-wide events such as science fairs, spelling bees, and geography bees.

Host Facility

Our classes meet at Chestnut Hill United Methodist Church located at 4660 Fort Ave, Lynchburg, VA 24502. Visit their website.


Membership Fees

Annual membership dues are $75 per family for the entire school year. This covers the cost of insurance, facilities, website fees, and other expenses. Families that decide to join later in the academic year, for the Spring semester, will be charged a $40 fee for a half-year membership.  

Class Fees

Tuition for Friday classes begins at $70 per child for a 14-week semester. Tuition for classes that meet on Tuesdays and Fridays, which are mostly high school level classes, start at $140 per child for a 14-week semester. Some classes have supply fees that are added on top of the regular tuition costs. Please see our Classes page for more information about individual class fees. 


*Homeschool First is not affiliated with any church or other home education group. We are supported solely by annual membership dues.
