Homeschool Group
 

Who Are We?

We are a local group of parents and kids who regularly meet for activities that enrich our children's educational experience. We are based out of Issaquah, WA, but have members coming from a wide geographical area.

Do we teach academic subjects?

Our homeschool group does not teach core academic subjects. Our families use a range of non-traditional education including homeschool curriculums, online learning systems, private distance learning programs, unschooling, private tutoring, and more. However, many of our activities are STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) or STEM projects.  

        

What kind of activities do we organize?

We host a diverse set of experiences that give kids the opportunity to try new things. Each child/teen is encouraged to share their unique interests with the group, providing the opportunity for growing their confidence and presentation skills. We encourage student-led activities & projects supported by encouraging adults. We also have other opportunities for kids/teens to interact including field trips, special interest clubs, and a book club. Check out the links below! 

 

What are the responsibilities of the co-op members? 

As a co-op, we ask each of our members ages 8 through adult to find one Friday per year to plan an activity. Friday activities are generally appropriate for all ages. Some activity ideas include art projects, science experiments, cooking, engineering projects, games, music activities, photography, clay art, glass art, outdoor skills, and other special interest activities. The activity can be in a home or somewhere in the community like a museum, art studio, park or field trip location. You can "teach" about something you are passionate about, or just plan a trip for the group. The requirement to plan one activity per group member ages 8 and above is the minimum requirement for the year - we welcome any extra activities you're willing to plan for our group!
