When are Classes?

Classes happen every Friday at FBCA during the fall and spring semester. There are many different learning opportunities offered by parents for a minimal cost (generally the supplies needed for the workshop). ARCHE occasionally offers core science workshops and workshops taught by professionals; these generally cost more. Offerings vary each semester depending on what the parents decide to lead.

Where are classes held? 

Classes are held at First Baptist Church of Arnold (FBCA).  On occasion, some classes may require a different meeting spot, i.e. our theater group meets at a local venue during production week.  All classes will have specifications on locations and families are usually made aware of different locations when they register for the class.

If I decide to teach a class, how do I decide what to teach?

First of all, we ask that each family spend at least one semester at ARCHE actively participating in classes.  Classes are unique by design, and having a new teacher unfamilar with the structure of ARCHE can be difficult.  Once that semester is over, the class coordinator will send out an email requesting class submissions.  At this point you would fill out the form, making decisions about what to offer, when you can offer it, how much to charge, etc.  All classes are subject to board approval.
