|Co-ops, Classes, and Dual Credit|
REACH Co-op is a cooperative organization of about 100 homeschool families, located in the Clear Lake area (Southeast Houston), who gather together to share our talents for the benefit for our children. Together we serve to provide a Christian learning environment to supplement our own homeschools from birth through 12th grade.
FAITH is a Christian, academic, full-day, homeschool co-op that meets on Mondays from 9:00 - 3:00 at Clear Lake Baptist Church, on the southeast side of Houston. We have parent taught classes and one parent from each family is asked to teach or assist in a class. We have classes for preschool through 12th grade. The specific classes offered differ by grade level but generally include the core courses. Our preschool classes cover letters, numbers, colors and shapes.
Our Mission: Through the sharing of our members' gifts and talents we strive to provide academic support and enrichment to home school families, which would enhance a parent's efforts to educate their children, by offering quality classes in a Christian environment.
