You must either visit a coop while it is in session or attend a planning meeting in order to join.
At the planning meeting you can sign the statement of faith.
Why are we so picky? Well, being in a coop looks shiny until you are in a coop. (Unless you are a kid, in which case it’s always shiny.) If you are a parent, you will have 2 extra hours of work a week, with commuting and packed lunches to worry about. And worst, until we know you, we won’t let you teach anything, so your chores will be boring but essential. Once you are teaching, it is not uncommon for coop preparation to take more time than all the rest of homeschool. Trust me – you want to know if it’s worth it before you decide to join.
