Co-op Membership Info

MCH Co-op is a sub-group of Mandarin Christian Homeschoolers.  Our co-op is limited to 200 children and generally caps at about 80 families.  We have children of all ages, from babies to high schoolers. Co-op meets on Friday mornings for 12 weeks in the spring and 12 weeks in the fall for 2 hours of classes each week.  Classes are elective in nature and parent-taught.  Parents must either teach or assist in the classroom for one of our two hours of programming.

Our classes are grouped into 5 categories (preschool, primary, elementary, middle, and high school), with each category (except preschool) offering 3 - 5 different class choices each hour.  The classes we offer vary from year to year and depend entirely on what parents want to teach.

Cost for joining the co-op is $135 per family, of which 90% is given to the church where we meet as a facilities fee.  The remaining amount covers website and administrative costs.

We often have an open house in March or April toward the end of our co-op year.  Applications for co-op are distributed and accepted during a short two-week window in the spring. We generally have more applicants than we can accommodate.  Co-op accepts applicants only from families current and active in our general membership. General membership includes full website access and offers general members a chance to get to know MCH through field trips, park days, and other social events.  If you are interested in co-op, joining the general membership is the first step.

Our application window for co-op 2019/2020 is March 15th-April 1st. General membership is always open to new members, but we will not accept further co-op applications after April 1st, for the 2019/2020 school year. Open House will be held on March 15th, 2019 at 9:00.
