Information for the 2024 Spring Semester
Questions about the application or the co-op can be emailed to email@example.com.
We are now accepting new applications for families with middle school-aged students only. Available classes are only in the Afternoon Session, and the class list for the Spring can be found either on the Classes tab or grade-specific classes on the 6th-8th Grade page.

STEP-up Co-op was started in 2018 as a means to provide an opportunity for homeschool families to supplement learning at home in a group environment. Our goal remains the same to this day:
To help provide homeschool families with quality classes once a week at a low cost while maintaining our sense of community within the co-op.
Due to continuing interest in the co-op, the board made the decision to expand the co-op into two separate sessions starting in August 2023.
Beginning in August 2023
Morning Session meets on Mondays from 8:45 AM - 11:50 AM and is geared toward K-5th Grades.
Afternoon Session meets on Mondays from 12:45 PM - 3:50 PM and is geared toward 6th-12th Grades.
More information about the two sessions can be found on the About Us page.
We require at least one parent per family to commit to attending co-op every week for the entire semester. In order for the co-op to function effectively, every parent will be assigned at least two jobs while on campus. Should you miss a week, your jobs must be filled by others in addition to their other jobs. So your attendance is essential in continuing to make this co-op a success!
A list of classes for the Spring is in the works! A general description, class fee, period, and grade levels will be provided for each class on the Classes tab to help you prepare for the upcoming semester.
Family Fee - this is a required fee of $100 per semester, per family regardless of the number of children in your family or the number of sessions you attend. Each family must pay this once-per-semester $100 fee prior to being able to register your children for classes in the upcoming semester. Only accepted families can pay this fee, and by paying this fee, you are indicating that you are committing to attend and participate in the co-op for the entire semester.
NEW INCENTIVES FOR TEACHING have been added that will help reduce your family fee! Teachers already get to register for classes a day before general registration opens, but now added to the perk of registering early...
teaching one class will get you a coupon code for $10 off your family fee OR
teaching two classes will get you a coupon code for $25* off your family fee
*this is in lieu of, not in addition to, the $10 off coupon
Class Fees - in addition to the required $100 family fee, each class will have a fee associated with it that will vary based on the cost of materials needed for the class.
