Homeschool Co-op
 

Membership Information

Any homeschooling family is welcome to participate in Compass Homeschool Co-op provided that:

  • You have a student in Kindergarten or higher.

  • All family members agree to uphold the statement of belief, even if they are not in full agreement with it.  The foundation of Compass and all of its classes are from a biblical worldview, so every family must adhere to the statement of beliefs in all areas of service.

  • The family agrees to add their talents, gifting, and expertise to the co-op.  At least one parent/guardian must sign up for different jobs to be done throughout the semester and must fulfill those jobs.

  • The family/child agrees to full or part-time attendance of each registered child, including recess and chapel.  We do not allow families to only attend 1 or 2 classes and then leave, they must stay for the full session (whether it is full day or half day). **Exceptions may be made for highschoolers.  Please see a leadership team member about this.

  • A parent agrees to be on-site with their child/children.  No drop-offs allowed.  **Exceptions may be made for highschoolers.  Please see a leadership team member about this.

  • The mother/father are willing and able to fulfill the 6 Steps of Admission listed below.

  • The family reads the parent/student handbook and will willingly submit to all policies/rules.

  • There is room for you and ALL of your children wishing to attend.

Co-op Classes are filled on a first come, first serve basis AFTER we have approved your membership, received registration fees and completed member forms. Please note: teachers’ children as well as the children of those holding leadership roles, are given priority registration. When a class is full, it will be closed. Each full class will maintain a waitlist. Also, if a class minimum is not met, the class may be cancelled. Co-op 

6 Steps of Admission

Our admissions process is designed to help you ascertain if Compass would be a good fit for your family's needs and goals.

  1. Attend an informational meeting. These presentations are scheduled twice per year and provide the best introduction to the Compass. If for some reason you are not able to attend a meeting, please contact us to schedule a one-on-one meeting with the Leadership Team. Membership forms are only accepted from families who have attended an informational meeting or a one-on-one interview. Childcare is not provided during these meetings, but children are welcome to attend and sit with their parents.  

  2. Prayerfully consider Compass as a fit for your family. Consider your family's needs and goals and whether Compass could help you meet them. 

  3. Look over the calender and schedule and make sure that you and your family are able to fully commit to Compass.  Our success is VITAL to each family being fully committed.  If you know in advance that you will be missing 3 or more co-op days, then we recommend that you hold off on registering your family this semester.

  4. Complete the member application. The actual date your forms are received will be used for determining priority in enrollment. The member application can be found under the "Join" link at the top.

  5. Pay the non-refundable registration fee of $50 for the semester.

  6. If we have room for your family and we approve your application, you will need to complete the following forms and sign up for a teacher/helper position:

  • Signed Background Check Form

  • Signed Medical Release and Waiver of Liability

  • Signed Student Contract

Once you have completed these steps and have been accepted, you will gain access to class registration.  

Families that are not fully registered by the deadline will be dropped from all class rosters, and the spots will be given to the next family/child on the waiting list.
