The Upstate Homeschool Co-op began in 1997 and was incorporated in 2003. The Co-op is not designed to take the place of the parents educating the children at home, but to provide enhancement opportunities in the overall education of the student. The Upstate Homeschool Co-op is organized and administered by a volunteer committee of home schooling parents. The Co-op Staff is responsible for the week-to-week Co-op administration and policy decisions under the authority of the Board of Directors. We offer classes for home school students on Mondays and Wednesdays taught by paid professionals. The majority of our teachers are degreed in the field they are teaching.
