Classes include: Apologia Human Anatomy, Apologia General Science, Apologia Biology, IEW Speech Boot Camp, Art, CSI and P.E.
The WHE Co-op only runs 14 times per year. We come together for labs and classes that enhance your homeschool experience. Our schedule means less time commitment, yet it still allows for structured classes with a group of peers. We also have set up our day to allow for plenty of social time for parents and children. Our classes are run by homeschool parents which keeps our costs down. We require parents to volunteer in some capacity so everyone feels connected as part of the team. We hope you will consider our group for your family! Visit http://wearehomeeducators.com/co-op-classes for all of the details.
