Co-Ops

You do not have to homeschool alone! A co-op is a great opportunity for homeschooling families to get together with other homeschooling families in their area. There are different types of co-ops; some offer just meet ups and field trips, while others offer weekly classes. Each co-op is different but they all have one thing in common: families use them to help the socialization component with homeschooling.
