Would you like to have lesson plans already prepared for all kinds of subjects, be part of a supportive community of fellow homeschoolers, but avoid the risk of infection and not have to go online for classes? Then Academy Days Co-op may be just right for you this fall!

Perhaps best of all, the entire cost for fall semester is ONLY $20 per family or FREE for those who help with a class!

We'd love to have you join our co-op! To protect our members with compromised immune systems and respect our church venue's policy of no large groups, Academy Days Co-op will continue remotely for Fall 2020. This offers a unique opportunity for new members to try co-op for the first time risk-free.

Open enrollment lasts through August 4, so CLICK HERE to see the Fall 2020 Schedule with available spaces.

We reply via email usually within a couple of hours.

Here's how our virtual co-op will work:

Parents will receive lesson plans with detailed instructions from their children's teachers for each class, so no worries with organizing or preparing every subject! Some teachers may include links to videos or informative web sites, and others may provide a video of their children performing the experiment or activity, but the experiment or activity can be conducted without these. Additionally, some teachers may schedule a Zoom class or an hour at the park to conduct a group activity. (However, families are not obligated to participate in the Zoom or park meetings – we know some families have poor Internet or want to avoid risk of infection.)

Classes with homework (only gr. 7-12) will require students to email homework to the teachers to check or correct, so your child will have accountability and you will have someone with more expertise checking their work!

Supplies for the experiments, crafts and activities each week will be common household items when possible and purchased by the parent, so purchasing supplies is virtually your only class fee.

Parents can sign up their children for just one class or several classes. Academy Days Co-op is open to all homeschoolers, whether in a cover school or independent.

Contact us to enroll today and make Fall 2020 your most relaxed, productive semester yet!

To read about our Pajama Day, click here or click the photo. Academy Days Co-op celebrated its 10-year anniversary way back in Fall 2016! Our co-op owes its longevity and success to the Lord, Who works through all the parents contributing their ideas and volunteering their time and expertise every semester. Not every parent teaches a class, and we certainly appreciate those who do teach, but we also value parents who assist teachers, set up, clean up, organize events, encourage and help each other. We parents determine the classes and actually run the co-op. By working together and adapting to fit members' needs, our co-op thrives and all the children and parents benefit!

Our members meet for co-op classes on Tuesdays 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. 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. We'd love to have your family join us!

Academy Days Co-op is not a church school.
If your child is compulsory age, then you must comply with state regulations and either enroll in a church school or notify the local superintendent of your homeschool intentions. Although many families in Academy Days belong to the cover school Outlook Academy, we welcome families from any homeschool covering or no covering at all.

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 serving the homeschool community since the 2006-2007 school year. Since then, more than 75% of our graduates have progressed to college or university (77.7%). We are very proud of our industrious students and dedicated team teachers! Of course, college is not a prerequisite for success in life, and we also applaud those graduating students over the years who have successfully pursued employment, entrepreneurship, missions, or the military instead of college.

Our success must be one of the reasons why so many co-ops are following our format and policies. Indeed, we are thankful that other homeschoolers have found our 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, by following the Lord's Will, 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
