We are a Christian Homeschool Co-op in the heart of the Portland area reaching out to homeschooling families and connecting them in the community.

Are you looking for a one-day-a-week program for your outside activities?  Friday School is what you’re looking for!


What is Friday School?

Friday School is a wonderful, one day-a-week cooperative program at the heart of the First Choice Central Portland ministry.  We meet for classes at Glisan St. Baptist Church during two sessions each year: Fall and Spring.  Each session runs about eight to ten weeks, depending on the calendar year and holidays.


What We Do

Nursery and early childhood education program one day-a-week

Kindergarten-High School classes one day-a-week

Encourage homeschool parents

Help new homeschoolers get started

Organize group field trips for families

Offer new friendships and opportunities for students

Christ-centered community outreach to homeschooling families


Friday School is only possible through the cooperative effort of all our members.  Each Friday during our sessions, all enrolled families come together for a half day of chapel, classes, fellowship, and fun!


Why We Do It

Our heart is to come alongside, connect, encourage, lift up, and support homeschooling families like yours.  We believe that God has equipped you with everything you need to educate your children at home.  Our mission is to help build up a community of Christian homeschoolers that will help you go the distance.   We look forward to serving alongside you, and ministering to your family in a way that will encourage and inspire you.
