Co-ops & Tutorials


Below is a listing of many of our area’s supplemental resources to help us as we homeschool.  A “Co-op” is typically a once-per-week event where families come together and offer classes and a parent stays onsite to help teach the classes.  It is not a drop-off, and the costs are usually minimal.  A “Tutorial” hires tutors to teach certain classes to your child/ren.  It is a drop-off and tutorials are usually once or twice per week.  “Classical Conversations” is a national organization with local learning communities that meet one day a week with parents and students to help parents offer a classical approach to education.
