What does it mean to be inclusive secular? 

Richmond Homeschool Collective accepts and welcomes all families regardless of their race, ethnicity, class, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, religion, or national origin. Our member families come from many different backgrounds and may practice a variety of religious traditions or none at all. We do not uphold any religious world view, and our classes are taught using currently held theories, based on empirical evidence.

Do I have to remain on site or can I drop off my student?

We are not a drop off program. However, if your student is 13 yrs old or older, you or your appointed guardian may leave your student on site while their class is in session. All students should read and understand our behavior policy and responsibilities and be able to adhere to them. All parents should check their student in and out with a volunteer supervisor.  Parents must remain on site with other children 12 yrs old and under and provide for their direct supervision. For more information, please see:

Am I required to teach a class or volunteer in order to participate? 

Parents are not required to organize activities, but it's highly encouraged.  Parents of the collective will be expected to volunteer as able.  Volunteer signups include but are not limited to  supervision, morning set up, end of day cleaning and closing, administrative task, and special events.

How much does it cost to participate?  

For every 12 week semester a family attends. Fees are determined by the overall cost of admininstrave costs and subject to change. Members are expected to pay dues before having access to activitiy signups.  Individual activitiy costs vary, but we strive to  balance the  schedule so families can work  within their budgets. 

Where are the classes held, and what can my other children do while they are waiting for classes? 

 We currently meet within the Richmond City limits.We do not provide child care for younger siblings. We encourage families with younger children to organize actitives for their childrens' interests.
