• What is a Homeschool Co-op?

    A homeschool cooperative is a group of families who come together with a common goal of educating their children. Co-ops typically have a central focus such as arts, academic, or spiritual formation. In order for a co-op to be successful, all parents must take on a role whether by teaching/tutoring, administrative, clerical, field trips/meetups coordinator, etc.  In other words, ‘all hands on deck’ are needed. When everyone contributes, everyone benefits.

  • Is this a drop-off program?

  • When is the registration deadline?

    The registration deadline to enroll your child or children in our program is July 15. Late registration will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us to inquire.

  • Do you allow rolling enrollment?

    We prefer to have all our students start the year together. However, if you want to join us mid-year we can do our best to accommodate your needs. Please contact us to discuss it.

  • Do you have to be Orthodox Christian to join?

    The majority of our families are Orthodox Christians and our prayer service, catechism classes and spiritual retreats are exclusively Orthodox in ethos and content. Our statement of faith is the original Nicean Creed composed by the saintly bishops of the One, Holy, Catholic (Universal) and Apostolic Church.

    We are open to welcoming families who are Catechumen or may be actively exploring becoming Orthodox or those from other traditional Christian backgrounds who are willing to participate in our program with respect for our values, traditions, doctrines and worship.
