Eligibility Requirements

If you are attempting to register for Christian Homeschool Co-op, you must be registered with the State of New Mexico Public Education Department as a homeschool, and your oldest child must be at least in Kindergarten.  CHC is designed as a ministry to serve homeschooling families, so we ask that if your oldest child is still preschool-age or younger, you wait to join the co-op until you have school-age children.  Thank you!

 

First Semester in CHC?

If you are new to the co-op, instead of participating in a classroom, you (Mom) will participate in our Women's Fellowship Group which meets at the same time and place as the children's co-op classes.  This will give you the opportunity to be introduced to the co-op, and to build friendships within the group.  If you are in Fellowship Group during the spring semester, you will be part of a team that organizes a Field Day for the kids on the last day of co-op.  There will be an additional fee (usually around $15), payable on the first day of class, for the cost of the Fellowship Group book.

 

Statements of Agreement

Please read the Core Beliefs, Rules and RegulationsSick Day Policy, and FAQ under the "About Us" tab on this website.   In order for your registration to be processed, you must sign that you have read and agree to our policies, including the Core Beliefs. If you have a question about this, please contact a council member.
 

Parent Application

We need to have a parent application on file for all adults who will be in the classroom with children.  We ask that participating adults fill this out at the time of registration, because they will be participating in a classroom with children after their first semester of attending the co-op Women's Fellowship Group

Family & Student Registration Form:  Selecting classes

(The Family & Student Registration Form is only available during open registration.)

  • Each semester before you register for classes, please remember to update your User Account/Profile Information (click on My Profile, then click on Edit).  It is especially important that we have the correct allergy information for each of your children, and your current email address.

  • Please register every child and parent that will be attending co-op, including infants and dads.  In order to be able to select your child's name from the drop-down list, you must have already filled out their information on your User Account page.  If your child is not yet born at the time of registration, you can register him/her as "Baby _____", filling in the bank with your last name.  You can put an approximate birthdate - this can be edited after your child is born.

  • From the list of classes on the Family & Student Registration Form, please select a class for yourself and each of your children. You will only be able to select a class that is still available and not to capacity yet.

  • Even if it is not your first semester in co-op, you may participate in the Women's Fellowship Groupif you need a refreshing break from the classroom for a semester, as long as space is available.

 

Priority Enrollment / Class Placement

You may register online at any time during the open registration period.  Placement is assigned upon a first-come-first-serve basis.

While we sincerely try our very best to place you and your children into your preferred classes, we are required by fire code restrictions to limit the number of children that can be assigned to each classroom.  We must also ensure that we have proper adult to student ratios in each classroom. Because of this, your first option may not be available. 

Class Confirmations

Three to four weeks after registration has closed, you should receive an email from the registrar alerting you to view your class placement information on your homepage of our website.  Please look over this information very carefully, and contact the registrar immediately with any questions you may have about your class placements, or with any corrections that need to be made.  If any information needs updating or correcting i.e. allergies, emergency contact info, phone numbers, or email address please let us know as soon as possible.  No changes can be made after one week prior to the start of classes.

If your circumstances change after you have registered for co-op, and you will no longer be able to attend, please let us know as soon as possible, as there may be other families on a waiting list to get into classes.  Thank you!

 

Payment

Registration is $30.00 per family per semester, regardless of number of children.  You can pay online (no credit card information is kept on file).  You are not registered until you have paid.  If you need a scholarship, please contact a council member (see contact info at the bottom of this page). Once registration closes, there will be no refund if you decide to cancel. We will, however, issue a refund if we are unable to fit your children into our classes.
