Welcome to the Arnold Region Christian Home Educators (ARCHE) website. We represent families from Jefferson County, South County, and the surrounding areas.

What are Workshops?

Workshops happen every Friday at SCBC 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 also offers some core science workshops and others workshops taught by professionals, these generally cost more. Offerings vary each semester depending on what the parents decide to lead.

Where are workshops held? 

For the majority of the time, workshops are held in The Commons of South County Baptist Church (SCBC).  On occasion, some workshops may require a different meeting spot, i.e. our theater group meets at a local venue during production week.  All workshops will have specifications on locations and families are usually made aware of different locations when they register for the class.

If I decide to lead a workshop, how do I decide what to lead?

Yes!  First of all, we ask that each family spend at least one semester at ARCHE actively participating in workshops.  Workshops are unique by design, and having a new leader unfamilar with the structure of workshops can be difficult.  Once that semester is over, the workshop 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.  One of the only instances a class submission may be denied is when there are too many classes submitted (and they will be chosen based on submission dates).
