HH co-op is a Christian organization open to any homeschooling family where the oldest child in the family is at least in kindergarten, 5 years old and legally registered with the state of NC if applicable, at the start of the co-op year. All preschool/nursery children must be free from separation anxiety and able to be left by parents (we cannot guarantee parents serving only in their children’s class). Throughout the year, HH functions as a support group, gives ministry opportunities, fellowship opportunities and offers two types of academic classes for local homeschool families. Just a reminder, if you choose to homeschool your child you are still responsible for their schooling even when they are receiving outside instruction. HH wants to help you with your homeschool journey, not take it over; therefore our policy is that any student taking ANY class at HH co-op (tuition classes included) must have an adult volunteer on Fridays during co-op.
Statement of Faith: HH is a Christ-centered group. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah promised in the Old Testament. He is the only begotten Son of God the Father, the only way to salvation and reconciliation with God. We believe that the Bible in its original form is the infallible, written word of God. We believe in the Biblical account of the creation of the world, that God is our Creator. He is a loving, omnipresent, omniscient, all-powerful, loving Father.
All teaching for HH classes is done in alignment with our Statement of Faith. We teach from a creationist point of view. All teachers in HH will be expected to sign our Statement of Faith. Highland Baptist Church allows us to use their facilities but has no oversight over curriculum or the direction of the education of the participants. HH is entirely financially self-supporting with no financial obligations from Highland Baptist Church.
Type of Classes:
HH recognizes that the parents are the responsible for the curriculum and instruction of their children. But in an effort to work together we offer classes in which individuals offer tutoring and instruction to assist the parents in their academic goals. HH has three main types of classes. ALL CLASSES AT HH REQUIRE FAMILIES TO JOIN HH CO-OP AND HAVE A BASIC CLASS FEE. The class fee covers copies, basic supplies, background checks for teachers and most lab fees for individual students and teacher. The class fee does not cover notebooks or text books unless specified in class description.
1) Co-op Classes: These are classes that are taught by volunteers and/or parents that have the ability to teach on that topic. These classes will have a class fee associated with them that varies depending on the class activities.
2) Tuition-Based Classes: These are classes where a “tutor” who is educated and/or gifted in a particular area offers classes at HH. These classes have a fee associated with them which is paid directly to the instructor. (Co-op registration fee is required that is on top of the co-op registration fee. Tuition-based Classes are listed in red on HH material. A participation grade will be issued IF ALL FEES AND TUITION ARE PAID IN FULL at the end of the year. Students will not be allowed to register for the next school year if tuition or fees for the current school year are still outstanding.
3) Nursery/Preschool: These are only available for siblings of co-op members, teachers and volunteers.
If a student takes a class the parent must volunteer in some capacity on Friday during co-op time. All classes for all ages are subject to the co-op registration fee of $40 per student max of $60 per family.
Just a reminder, if you choose to homeschool your child you are still responsible for their schooling even when they are getting outside instruction. We want to help you with your homeschool journey, not take it over, so you need to be involved in the co-op. Parent volunteers are required to serve during co-op classes. When parents serve it enables us to offer supplemental academic opportunities for free and/or for reasonable fees.
We meet every Friday at Highland Baptist Church, 8524 Crowder Road, Raleigh , NC 27603. We have 3 periods of classes with a lunch and devotion time.
You can view our classes by downloading any of our registration forms on our “forms & policies” page.
