General

Q:

When and where are classes held?

A:

Classes are held every Wednesday, from 9 am to 2:30 pm. We have two 12-week semesters that begin in September and January,  We currently meet at First Baptist Church, in Lancaster, Ohio.

Q:

How much does it cost?

A:

There is an annual family fee of $100 which covers insurance, facility usage fees, website use and maintenance, and other general supplies.

Teachers set the price for their individual classes which generally range from $0 to $45.

Q:

Do I, as a parent, have to stay at co-op or can I drop my children off?

A:

Yes, parents have to stay at co-op.  We are not a drop off program.  Without our parents working in some capacity, we would not be able to hold classes.  It takes everyone to make the co-op run smoothly!

Q:

Do I have to sign a statement of faith or be a Christian to participate in TLC classes?

A:

No, but we are a christian group.  While we welcome all families, teachers must agree with and sign our statement of faith in order to teach a class.

Q:

What types of classes are offered at TLC?

A:

All sorts. Our course offerings change every year but usually include high school core classes such as Algebra, Geometry, General science, Biology with Lab, Chemistry with lab, and Literature courses. Click on Class Registration to see a complete list of current classes being offered.

Q:

Are classes accredited?

A:

No. Some classes will be offered on a credit basis, others on a non-credit basis. It is up to the parents to discern which of these course options is best for their children by reviewing the Class Descriptions

Q:

Can I join in the middle of the school year?

A:

Yes, families may join us for second semester. The registration is $50, and students may take any available classes. Please note that many core classes are full year and may be at capacity.

Q:

Do I have to teach a class?

A:

No, you are not required to teach, but we do encourage parents to give it a try! We do not hire teachers, so the classes offered depend on what parents are willing to teach. The more parents get involved, the more interesting options our students have!

Q:

What will I do all day if my children are in classes and I'm not teaching?

A:

Volunteer positions abound in a group like ours. We have no paid staff so everyone must participate in some form in order for this to work. All parents/guardians are required to serve in at least 2 positions. Areas of service include teacher, co-teacher, classroom assistant, nursery caregiver, lunchroom monitor, study hall monitor, Welcome desk, clean-up crew, volunteer coordinator, special events coordinator, and many more.
