Who We Are
Guidance - Recreation - Academics - Community - Education
GRACE Christian Homeschool Services exists to serve and support homeschooling families through guidance, recreational activities, academic classes, community events and education in the Adams/York counties in south central PA and surrounding areas. As a Christian homeschool support group that serves homeschooling families, we provide classes, parties, field trips, fairs, activity days, family nights, portfolio shares, evaluation day, planning meetings, an annual Back2School ice cream social and other events. We are board led and member supported.

Please visit our "Links" page for more information on required safety clearances.
Please check back in January 2024 for information about our spring semester.
To join, you must be a GRACE member. This includes current safety clearances.
GRACE Co-op is available in a two-semester format during the academic year. The group meets on Mondays. Fall semester begins in mid-September and runs ten consecutive weeks. Spring semester begins in mid-February and also consists of ten consecutive weeks. We take a generous break between the two semesters.
Co-op is open to anyone homeschooling their children. Because we are a true cooperative, GRACE asks that one parent teach, and/or assist with, classes as needed. We are not a drop-off co-op. Parental attendance and participation is required. Each year a planning meeting is held in July to prepare for the fall semester.
Registration is by family, not by individual students. Registration is also by semester, not the full academic year. The current semester fee is $50/family. Families register in August for fall semester and in January for spring semester.
