New Family FAQ
What is the cost to join?
To join Heritage Homeschool Co-op, there is an annual fee of $140 per family along with a commitment to be on campus with your students and volunteer. We are a cooperative non-profit organization run by a volunteer Board.
The website lists the Total Tuition for the school year. Tuition is paid in 8 monthly installments. Upon class registration, the materials fee and one month tuition installment are required. Additionally, for registrations after the beginning of the school year, a prorated portion of the current month's tuition will be charged. Subsequent tuition installments are due on the 15th of each month during the school year (September through April).
Is the Family Fee refunded if I’m unable to register for the class I want?
The Family Fee is non-refundable. We recommend that you check the seats available in the classes you would like to register before deciding to enroll. “Children Available: 5” means there are 5 open seats in that class. There are many great class options for different age levels each hour. We are confident that you can find great options, even if it is not your first choice. If you have a special situation, please contact the Registrar directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How many classes can I take? Do I need to stay all day?
Families choose classes based on their student’s needs. Each family may enroll individual students for any number of classes, 1 class, or up to 5 classes. We recommend families with younger children consider choosing 1-3 classes.
What do I do with my baby?
While babies are not allowed in classes unless enrolled, Heritage provides a nursery for use while the parent is fulfilling a volunteer job. The nursery is available for children under 5 years old. There is a small monthly tuition of $8 per child plus one time material fee of $15.
How will I be expected to help?
Primarily, our co-op jobs are helping out in the classroom. This work includes taking attendance and supporting the teacher. However, work depends on the class and can range from simply taking attendance to helping with art projects. However, there are also jobs such as nursery help, and serving in the café. Your job preferences can be made in our survey that is emailed to members at the end of summer.
What if I am sick or absent?
Heritage provides a substitute list to assist you in arranging for a substitute in your absence.
