Our co-op meets twice a month throughout the school year
What is a homeschool co-op?
The purpose behind Revival Christian Academy’s cooperative program is to create community and a sense of family by working together to educate our kids and encourage each other. Our homeschool co-op is free to enrolled families.
“A homeschool co-op is a group of families who meet together and work cooperatively to achieve common goals. Co-ops can be organized around academics, social time, the arts, activities, crafts, service work, or projects — or some combination of these. Co-ops are more enrichment-oriented, with a focus on the arts, social time, or unique angles on traditional subjects. Children in these co-ops typically do most of their learning outside of their co-op, but a co-op is one more experience that builds their knowledge and provides them with a chance to be with friends or do something interesting.” (thehomeschoolmom.com)
“Co-ops are set up for team players. By its nature, you are going to have to do something to help. Please don’t join a co-op if you are going to drop off your child and run (unless it’s one of the rare programs where you pay for that privilege). Before you sign up, think of what you can offer the group. Is there a subject you are comfortable teaching to a small group? Can you offer administrative skills? Are you a good hall monitor or can you work in the nursery while other parents teach?” (onlypassionatecuriosity.com)
Grassroots Homeschooling-Rewinding the Clock
In the early days of homeschooling parents, pooled their resources to get their kids the best education they could. Parents were passionate about taking their kids from the public school environment to a place where kids could not only learn according to their learning style, but where God is honored and magnified in all areas of education. We are rewinding the clock to a simpler time to where parents were teaching and directing the content of what is taught by relying on their God-given skills and gifts that they will passionately impart upon the kids.
Every parent will play a role (hence the name co-op/cooperative) to meet their fellow homeschool families’ needs. You may be a parent who has a love of math and would like to teach prealgebra to the kids, and maybe you need help teaching writing to your child, and there’s another mom who is gifted in that area and will be teaching a writing class.
In our co-op, all parents will be a part of the process. Whether helping with snack time, in class, watching kids on the playground, or cleaning up after class. Remember, it’s cooperative, and things will only get done if everyone works together. Did I mention this is FREE and is only open to Revival Christian Academy families?
My prayer is that your family will find your home here with us and that your kids’ education will be enriched!
