High School Co-op Information

Important Information for the High School Co-op

  • The BCHE Co-op meets at Living Stones Church on Thursdays from mid-August to mid-November in the fall and mid-January to mid-April in the spring.

  • The high school class's hours range from 8:00 A.M. – 3:00 P.M. depending on the classes being taught and which classes your student is registered for.

In order to register for the High School Co-op, you must first become a member of BCHE. You can join BCHE HERE. High School Co-op requires a High School application to be filled out prior to the time of registration. The application is found on the member side of the BCHE website under BCHE Co-op drop-down menu, or you can use the following link: High School Application. This application will not be able to be accessed until you are a member of BCHE. The deadline for the application is May 15th.

If you are already a member, you must renew your membership in order to register for co-op classes. Membership renewal for the following school year begins April 1st.

REGISTRATION:

  • Registration Dates: Registration for the entire co-op year takes place in June. First priority will be given to the teachers and the second priority to families signing up for both sessions. If space is still available, a final week of registration will be opened for families wishing to sign up for only one session. 

  • Registration Fees: $16 per student, per semester for the class fees plus a teacher fee to the high school teacher. The registration fee will state $32 if it is a full-year class.

  • Teacher Fees: The teacher fees are paid upfront, directly from the parents to the teachers on the day of orientation. Teacher fees range from $150-$180/year for a full-year class and $75/year for a half-year class. 
  • Payment deadlines: Payment for both sessions class fees are due in June at the time of registration through the use of Paypal. If payment has not been received through PayPal within 24 hours, your classes will be canceled. If payment is being made by check, you MUST email the treasurer within 24 hours of registration and mail the check with a printout of the family’s registration page within 1 business day to Ellen Gill, BCHE treasurer. If the treasurer has not received your check within five business days, the registration will be canceled so that we can offer that spot to another student.

  • Refunds: There are no refunds for class fees if you decide to cancel your registration. Teacher fees will be refunded for any classes dropped before the 2nd week of classes (except for the first month, which is non-refundable).

  • Update Personal Information: Prior to registration, PLEASE make sure that all of your personal information is correct and up-to-date on the BCHE website. Just select “Edit My Profile” and make all necessary changes (address, phone numbers, new additions to the family, and FULL NAMES of all your children). Having your correct information is crucial to your successful registration. Make sure all your children’s allergies are accurately listed as well.

  • Mandatory Orientation: Your student’s teachers will be prepared to meet their class for a shortened class period on the 2nd week of August during the mandatory orientation. This is the perfect time for the students to meet their teacher, obtain pertinent class information in order to be prepared for the first full day of class, and have any questions answered as well.

  • Questions: If you have any questions, please contact Devon Simmons at [email protected].
