All About REACH

REACH is an educational ministry to homeschooling families in Central WI.

Who:  Homeschool students who are 12 years or older by September 1 are welcome to participate in the REACH High program.  There will sometimes be a few class choices open as young as age 10. 

Why:  As Christian home-educators, we are dedicated to the support and development of homeschooling families. Our goal is to supplement & enrich the education provided by parents.  We strive to provide classes with a Biblical worldview in a safe and respectful environment.

What:  REACH was founded as a homeschool co-op with each family taking turns assuming teaching responsibilities.  REACH now functions as a service for homeschool families, coordinating classes and connecting families with tutors.

When:  REACH meets weekly on Tuesdays from September through April. There are 2 semesters, each with 12 weeks of class. REACH meets 8:50am - 12:00pm, with occasional afternoon classes.

Where:  REACH meets at Woodlands Church (190 Hoover Avenue, Plover, WI).

How:  The process to request REACH membership is explained below. The membership fee is per student. Enrollment for the spring semester will open after fall classes have begun.

Membership fees are due at the time of enrollment and are non-refundable.  Because most classes are tutor-taught, there will be additional class fees which are due at the time of class registration.  Classes are filled on a first-come-and-paid, first-served basis, with a waiting list available.
