FAQs

Q:

Do I need to take a full day of classes?

A:

No, you are free to take as many or as few classes as you wish.  

Q:

Is there a place on campus for my kids to go if they do not take classes during a certain period?

A:

Yes, we have a Study Hall and a Student Union where students can go if they do not have another class during a certain period.  Beginning Fall of 2017 you will need to register for Study Hall/ Student Union as a class. This is located at the bottom of the Class Schedule. Attendance will be taken in both settings.

Study hall is for quiet reading or study and is supervised by adult volunteers.

We also have a Student Union where students can go to socialize quietly with friends. It will also be supervised by adult volunteers. Students are asked to be mindful of the classes going on around them while they talk or play games with one another.

Q:

Do I need to stay on campus with my kids or may I drop them off?

A:

Parents are required to sign in students when they arrive on campus and to sign them out when they leave. We encourage parents to stay on campus, but it is not required.  Because this is a co-operative, all parents are required to volunteer in some capacity.  This can include serving as a Teaching Assistant, Hall Monitor, Clean Up Crew member, etc.  If you are not able to be on campus on Tuesdays, there are some volunteer jobs which can be done off-campus.  We also have a Parent Lounge on campus which is a great place for parents to chat and get to know each other.

Q:

Do you offer any classes for high school credit?

A:

Yes, please check the schedule for applicable classes.  Teachers will issue grades for the classes but it is the responsibility of each student's family to document the credits, save samples of work for the high school portfolio, and determine the appropriate requirements for the county or umbrella school.

Q:

Do you offer any classes for adults?

A:

Yes!  We have had several parents take guitar classes, art classes, etc., alongside their kids.  Classes which are listed to include "13th grade"  mean that adults are welcome to register.

Q:

What are mini-classes?

A:

Mini-classes are a variety of classes which meet for five weeks only.  Mini-classes provide a nice opportunity to sample a certain subject without having to commit to a whole year.  We hold five sessions of mini-classes; two in the fall semester and three in the spring semester.  If time or finances are limited, mini-classes provide a nice way for kids to benefit from being part of a co-op.  Registration fees are reduced for those taking only mini-classes.

Q:

How much are your registration fees?

A:

Registration fees are $60/year for one student and $85/year for two or more students.  These fees cover the co-op required insurance policy and church usage fees as well as other administrative fees, including background checks for adults who will be on campus.

Q:

We have previously attended co-op but now have a 'new' child to  register at co-op. How do we go about it?

 

A:

If you have previously taken classes at LCHA but you are now enrolling a new child who has not taken classes before, you will not be able to register them for classes until you add them to your "family roster".  

At the very top of the Home Page is a Profile tab. Click it and you can update any family information that has changed, including adding any new children who will be attending LCHA.
