When and where do you meet?
We meet on Mondays, September through May, from 9am - 2pm at Stafford Crossing Community Church (1420 Forbes St., Fredericksburg, VA 22405).
I see that Christian Heritage Home Educators (CHHE) is a conservative, Christian homeschool co-op. What exactly do you believe?
All members must be in agreement with our Statement of Faith. There are many homeschool groups//activities in the community and we realize we won't be the right fit for everyone.
What ages can participate in the CHHE co-op?
We have classes for nursery through high school, but all classes are only available to families who have at least one school age child (age five by September 30th) participating in classes.
What is required of me, as the parent?
We are a true co-op where every family has at least one parent actively participating. We are not a drop-off co-op. Each hour, you would need to be leading or assisting a class, unless your child is attending all day, in which case you would get one hour off to join in a moms' class or hang out in the floater lounge. Members show up, on time and ready to serve, so that we can offer the best for our children.
How much does membership in the co-op cost?
The membership costs for 2020-21 are as follows:
$325/family registration fee
$20 background check (filed every two years)
These fees cover the entire family for the whole year! The only exception is a few of our classes which have supply fees:
Additional class supply fees:
Chemistry in the Kitchen $60
Cooking Around the World $15
Crafting classes $10
What about textbooks?
The class description will include a title and ISBN number of any textbooks your child may need to purchase ahead of class time. Not all classes require a text.
What do you offer moms?
Homeschooling can feel quite isolating. Join our co-op and have access to moms' Bible studies, monthly Mom's Night Out, and the floater lounge where you can get to know other moms who are on the same journey.
When is registration?
Registration will begin in May! We have tiered enrollment. If you are a new member you will need to request membership and participate in a quick phone interview by one of our directors. You will want to get that completed before registration opens so you can enroll during your time slot.
9 am- enrollment for primary class leaders
12 pm- enrollment for returning members
4 pm- open enrollment for new members
If you have missed the opening date, don't fret! There may still be space for your family in our classes. We will continue to accept new registrations throughout the year.
