Parker Area Homeschool Co-op

Program information

Parker Area Homeschool Co-Op (PAHCO) is an organization of families who support families on their education journeys.

None of PAHCO's offering is designed to replace learning that takes place at home or at another learning institution. PAHCO is not a school, but a member shared learning co-operative. PAHCO does not grade, nor maintain transcripts. PAHCO runs 4  sessions per school year, each approximately 5-6 weeks in duration.

Each session is followed by a co-op field trip or social.

A co-op day includes morning Core Workshops, Subject Intensives, Electives and Clubs.

Offering and availability is subject to change due to interest and member support.

Description:

Core Workshops- Weekly theme or subject based courses organized in 5-6 week sessions, led by a co-op member. Subject offering, curriculum, and age group availability will vary based on the Workshop leader. Our goal is to offer Core Workshops for all students pre-12.

Subject Intensives- Small study groups or individual tutoring (depending on need and staff availability) in mathematics and writing. Designed to support and enhance learning that is already taking place at home. Subject Intensives align with the Core Workshop schedule, and may be led by a co-op member, teacher invited by a member, or older student mentor.

Electives and clubs- These are member initiated specialty courses, such as foreign language, scouts, Lego and robotics. Offering and availability will vary based on member interest and support.

Proposed Offering-Sign up now and help make these programs a smash!
