Hope Home School Co-op provides home school children an opportunity to be accountable in a “traditional” school environment. Classes convene for two semesters at Church on the Hill from 9:30 am until 3:00 pm each Friday from September through April. Children have the opportunity to participate in as many as four 55 minute classes each Friday, with a 45 minute lunch in the middle of the day. Children rotate between classrooms similar to a “traditional” school.
HOPE is NOT a daycare or preschool. Nursery through preschool care is provided ONLY for younger siblings of students registered for co-op classes. At least one child must meet HOPE’s eligibility requirement for Kindergarten by the first day of co-op. A parent/guardian is required to volunteer their time AND required to remain at the facility while their child is present. Member benefits include weekly accountability to a non-parent teacher, healthy competition, teamwork, and the challenges of interpersonal relationships with various age groups.
HOPE Home School Co-op is a SUPPLEMENT to your own home school program, it is not meant to be the only curriculum you use. HOPE does not dictate that certain classes be taught. The only classes offered each semester are those parent/teachers volunteer to teach. Depending upon the classes offered, HOPE might provide the basis for a student’s academic requirements (i.e. math, science, language arts history) along with opportunities less frequently offered in the home (i.e. choir, drama, foreign language, art), however HOPE should only be relied upon as a supplement.
