Co-op Classes 2019-20

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 Please keep in mind this list changes frequently and proposed classes can be withdrawn.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 that the vast majority of our classes are taught by volunteer parents. We can only offer what parents are willing to offer to fellow families.

If you are praying and considering teaching or if you want to discuss your ideas, please stop by the admin table and chat with Heather. If you have your class proposal idea, please fill out the class schedule request form online here.

Classes are still needed for all grades. The highest needs are the PK-2 and JH Science or Humanities classes. Lower grade classes can only accommodate a maximum of 12. Upper grade classes have a maximum of 18 students. Many classes have lower maximums as set by the teachers.

Questions? Please contact Heather Laky for more information.

Signup for co-op opens on May 15th. Click here to pay your facility fee.

You will be able to register for classes on either 8/1 (teachers), 8/2 (privately homeschooling families) or 8/3 (public homeschooling families). The date and time for registration will appear on the right hand corner of any class description indicating when you are able to enroll. If this does not appear, you have not registered and paid your co-op facility fee. This must be completed by 7/27 in order to register for classes when enrollment open.

Please be sure to make sure that your students have been added under your family profile as a child. You will be unable to enroll your student unless your have set up the child profile. Be sure to select the correct grade and input a birthdate. Click here to review and edit your family profile. 

For any questions, please contact JJ at

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. AB Fine Art Class fees are invoiced in 3 installments and will be paid directly via our paypal link to their account.

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.

A time to connect with other moms and the Lord. Get encouraged by God’s word, prayer, and talking about what’s going on in our lives along with having tea and treats. Leela Harris leads this afternoon time of community and fellowship. No registration required. Please come and join us when you can. We will meet at the picnic tables at 1 PM.

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

Parents are welcome to enroll in classes that are open to Adults. However, seats in these classes are prioritized for students first. Your registration will be placed on waiting list until the first week of co-op to ensure that all students have been able to register. Any remaining open seats will then be filled by the adults.
