What is ANCHOR?
ANCHOR is a homeschool group designed to provide a fun, loving atmosphere to homeschooling families in the area, helping them to grow in their faith by Following Jesus, Loving People and Making Disciples.
What to Expect
ANCHOR provides many opportunities for families to do life together and develop long lasting friendships, such as special events, service projects, educational fairs, field trips, p.e., age group activities, and more.
What We Expect from You
ANCHOR is a completely volunteer-run organization. In order to provide all the activities listed above, each member is required to volunteer in 2 events per semester. We are families coming together to provide our best to our kids. You are a part of that!
What is Co-Op
Co-Op is an add-on to your ANCHOR membership. If you opt to do co-op, your kids will have the opportunity to participate in 2 classes per semester, while you teach one class and assist in another. Co-Op classes are enrichment classes and not meant to take place of your home-based curriculum. Each semester of co-op lasts 9 to 12 weeks. Full commitment necessary.
