What is Co-op?

Co-op is a structured learning time, organized and carried out by and for ANCHOR Homeschool members. The purpose of Co-op is to encourage students to learn something new in a group setting, while fostering a sense of community.

Who is Co-op For?
Co-op is for families who are members of ANCHOR Homeschool with school-aged children and their younger siblings.

Where Do We Meet?

ANCHOR Homeschool Co-op meets at the Bell Shoals Church Apollo Beach Campus.

What Types of Classes are Offered at Co-op?

Classes are offered on a wide range of topics, often extra-curricular in nature, sometimes taking advantage of a group setting, and are not intended to replace or supplant the academic track that families have in place. Each semester’s classes are determined by what participating families choose to offer.

As a sample, here are the classes offered during the Spring 2021 semester:

Nursery and 2-3yr old – Story time and playground.
PreK/K – Learning Songs
1st/2nd – The Solar System
3rd/4th – Gardening Science
5th-8th – Baking Through the Bible

High School – Art: Modern Watercolor

Here is a great list of Co-Op Class ideas! Our Co-Op Director will work with you to determine a great class for you to teach!
