Information for Instructors

Our Co-op’s Location

Planet Homeschool is a vibrant, welcoming, and inclusive secular learning community for homeschooling students ages 10–19. We meet on Fridays from September 10, 2021, through May 6, 2022.

Due to the continuing uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we have not yet made a decision about resuming in-person classes for Fall 2021. Our goal is to decide by the end of June, but circumstances may necessitate delaying that call further. Many of our classes will work well in either format. Tuition will not be due until after a class’s status has been confirmed. Online classes will be synchronous to allow for real-time interactions between students and instructors.

PHS instructors are passionate about student learning and actively engaged in their fields. Our classes are small, fostering a comfortable, informal atmosphere and close relationships among instructors, students, parents and guardians. At the heart of our community are our awesome youth: the lively and intellectually curious students who truly enjoy being here and learning together. Students have gathering spaces for studying and socializing, and free time to get to know one another. Members may host additional social gatherings and activities such as bowling, movies, or park gatherings.

As a co-op, PHS is made possible by all our talents and labor. All members are expected to pitch in, whether that’s helping with setup and cleanup every Friday or taking the lead on organizing an open house.

We invite you to explore our website and look over our FAQ. If you have further questions regarding PHS, please feel free to contact our co-op’s Lead Volunteers at [email protected].
