...that they may know the mystery of God, namely Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Col 2:3 Because an observant child should be put in the way of things worth observing.  Charlotte Mason

Welcome to Creekside

The Creekside Academy Learning Co-op is an interdenominational group of Christian homeschooling families in the north Alabama area who have come together to assist one another in their home education efforts with cooperative classes led by parent volunteers. We also work together to provide supplemental activities, field trips, and opportunities for fellowship between parents and students. Classes and activities offered vary from year to year based on the needs and interests of the participating families.

Classes meet each Tuesday from 9 a.m until 2 p.m. on the campus of Sheffield First United Methodist Church, located on Montgomery Avenue in Sheffield.
