Founded in 1994, and located in Jackson, Michigan, we partner with families who desire to homeschool their children. Our primary desire is to come alongside the homeschooling parent/teacher and help lighten the load by offering tutorial support and enrichment opportunities for the middle through high school aged students. At the same time, we seek to be a family friendly program that provides some fun, educational, social, and enrichment opportunities for younger siblings as well. PIONEERS has something for everyone, with an awesome staff who love the Lord, love homeschoolers and are experts, often degreed, in their areas of teaching.
PIONEERS is a Christian homeschool co-op. While you do not have to be a Christian to take classes here, please know that our program is based on Judeo-Christian principles.
We meet three Wednesdays per month, for a total of 28 weeks, during the months of September through May. Classes are held at Ganson Street Baptist Church, 638 W. Ganson Street, in Jackson, MI. There are five class periods available for the 6th-12th grades. Weekly lesson plans which are provided by the tutor, are sent home to be accomplished by the student with little supervision from the parent. We are a co-op, therefore parents are required to volunteer their time. (4-8 hours per year in the 6-12th grade level and a few hours each week at the younger, YP level.) We have several work times and dates available to work around the needs of your family.
