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 9, 2022, through May 12, 2023.

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].
