What is CHARIS Co-op?

Our Co-op started with a small group of homeschool moms who wanted to share learning enrichment opportunities with other families. Thanks to the creativity and passion of many homeschool families, there's an exciting mix of enrichment classes for Pre-K through grade 12.

Co op registration for 2022 - 2023 will begin on June 2nd!

CHARIS is a family-friendly group welcoming all ages, including babies. Classes are available for Pre-K through 12th grade. Little ones can play in the supervised nursery or stay close to mom or dad. This is not a drop-off co-op. Since we are volunteer run, parents stay to help and are given a wide variety of volunteer choices, from teaching to assisting or working behind the scenes. Many hands make light work, so the load is not overwhelming. And the regular fellowship with one another is a blessing!


Homeschool families love the opportunities to connect with one another, and the co-op is a great way to do that on a regular basis. The academic enrichment classes and fun activities that members come up with are a great benefit to students, and the social connections are the frosting on the cake.


To participate in CHARIS Co-op, CHARIS membership is required. You may become a member of CHARIS anytime and enjoy year-round benefits and connections within this friendly community. 


If you have any questions or would like to arrange a visit to one of our co-op days or family events, feel free to contact us by email. We'd love to meet you!
