Proposed Co-op Classes 2020-21

Wondering what classes are being offered next year? Here is a link to a list of proposed class offerings. Please keep in mind this list changes frequently and classes can be withdrawn. The co-op class schedule is not finalized until late June/early July.

We are a Christian parent-led co-op which means the vast majority of our classes are taught by volunteer parents. We can only offer what parents are willing to offer to fellow families. As such, our class day varies from year to year as what parents feel led by God to teach varies. We are thankful for the gifts and talents of our parents teachers and their willing hearts to serve our class day families in this way.

Class fees are invoiced to your family account at the the time of reigstration. You can check your balance by clicking on Balance at the top right menu bar. 

These fees are due in full by 8/31 in order to hold your registrations. Any students with unpaid fees will be dropped from the enrollment and will need to re-register for the class and be added to the bottom of any waiting list. Class fees are due at the time of registration for any classes that you register for after 8/31. Payments for student, parent-alumni and outside teacher -taught classes should be made directly to the instructor no later than the first day of co-op.

Classes with Outside (O) or Student (S) instructors will show up on your registration summary with a ZERO class fee if the instructor is collecting the class fee directly. 

Refund policy: If you do not receive the classes you desire and withdraw your registration prior to the first day of co-op, the co-op facility fee will be refunded. A full refund of class fees will be given for classes that are canceled. 

If a class is dropped on or after the first session, the amount of the refund must be negotiated with the teacher as some of the funds may already have been spent on materials.

Please carefully read each online class description for additional refund policies set by individual teachers for their individual classes.

When you join a Moms in Prayer group, you’re not just gathering with a supportive group of like-minded moms who understand your struggles and share your passion for your children. You’re becoming part of a much bigger story of prayer for the children of the world.

Joleene Burts, homeschooling mother of two (ages 8 and 6), will be facilitating this structured prayer time. You’ll receive your own Moms in Prayer Booklet to help guide you through praying for our homeschools and children.

No registration is necessary. Come and join us whenever you can. We will meet at the picnic tables at 11 AM.

Homeschooling is both a rewarding and challenging experience. Single mothers who homeschool face the demands of providing a quality education for their children, meeting their many needs, and running a household on their own. Oftentimes single mothers must work outside the home in addition to everything else they do. Single parenting is a unique and complex journey that can leave us feeling overwhelmed, weary, and discouraged.

The good news is that we are complete in Jesus Christ!  His grace is sufficient to cover us in our weaknesses!  When we are discouraged, He will encourage and exhort us.  When we are exhausted, He will strengthen us.  When we are overwhelmed, He will give us peace and direction.

You do not have to be a part of class day to come and participate in this group.
