Academy Days Homeschool Co-op meets Thursdays for 14 weeks in the fall and 14 weeks in the spring at Coosada Baptist Church near Millbrook, Alabama, to learn, socialize and support one another. Starting Fall 2016, the co-op will meet on Tuesdays. Academy Days Co-op is designed for high school students, but we also include preschool through junior high classes so the entire family can participate.
Academy Days Co-op is not a church school. If your child is compulsory age, then you must first be enrolled in a church school to comply with state regulations. Although many families in Academy Days belong to Outlook Academy, we welcome families from any homeschool covering.
As a Christian homeschool co-op, we base our guidelines on precepts from the Bible, and classes are taught from a Christian worldview. Nevertheless, as an inclusive group, we welcome all families from diverse backgrounds, beliefs, and homeschool styles.
Academy Days Co-op has been operating since the 2006-2007 school year. During this time, 75 percent of our graduates have progressed to college. We are very proud of our dedicated team teachers and industrious students! Of course, college is not a prerequisite for success in life, and we also applaud our other graduating students who have chosen employment, entrepreneurship or military over college.
We feel honored and proud by so many co-ops that follow our policies, procedures and format. Indeed, we are thankful that other homeschoolers have found our format and operations to be so useful as to be copied to create their own co-ops. We have been working out the kinks in Academy Days Co-op since 2006. Apparently, we have done something right, and they think so as well. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and we appreciate the compliment.
"Thank you so much for co-op.
We have learned so many things
and are better cooks, chemists, and historians
because of our time spent there."
~ Lisa, former co-op parent
