Thank you for considering
Pathway Christian Co-op
for your high school student!
Pathway's High School homeschool program began in 2007!
Pathway has a thriving community of high school students in 9th-12th grades. Pathway meets weekly on Fridays in Huntersville, NC. In 2019/2020, we served 45 families with 64 students, and in 2020/2021, we served 59 families with 78 students. Our primary focus for classes is academic/core subjects.
Our High School Leadership team is here to help guide you through any questions that you may have regarding how Pathway operates, the classes that we offer, and our instructors. Our open houses are an excellent opportunity to meet with us, but we are always available by both email or phone to help! Our leaders, Sara, Stacie, and Cindy have a combined 8 years of co-op leadership experience, 12 years with Pathway Christian Co-op, and 37 years of homeschooling experience.
Our subjects, which vary yearly, include Biology, Chemistry, American History, World History, Christianity/Worldview, Economics/Government, Spanish 1, 2 and 3, Literature and Composition, Psychology, Sociology, Personal Finance, Computer Systems, and Gavel Club. Our class sizes range from 5 to 25 students, the average being somewhere in the middle.
We meet for 30 weeks each year beginning in August and ending in May with one week breaks approximately every six weeks. Our classes are offered a la carte, so students can focus on what they personally need each year. Our instructors are highly qualified and passionate about their roll in teaching our Pathway students. Each instructor sets the cost for their class.

For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. ~Romans 12:4-5
Please know that in order to operate the high school program, Pathway must have an assistant (adult) present in each class - in addition to the instructor. The assistant is not responsible for any teaching or substituting for the class; they are simply a second adult in the room so that we may honor the church's Safe Sanctuary policy.
If any parent has extenuating circumstances where you are not available on Fridays, please let us know as we do not want the volunteering request to keep any student from attending our classes. Thank you.
Any assistance parents can offer on Fridays is greatly appreciated. When you register, please indicate if you are able to volunteer as a room assistant, and let us know which class time(s) may work for you. Our hopes are that we have enough volunteers to spread the volunteer time out.
Once registration ends in August, if we do not have enough volunteers for each class, we will request help for the classes not covered.
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever."
~1 Peter 4:1-11
Fees for High School
An Operating Expense fee of $15 per class will be required upon registration. This fee covers Pathway's insurance, taxes, operating expenses and supplies. If you also have a student in Pathway’s K-8 program, this operating expense is waived for high school.
A Church Donation of $15 per class will be collected on the first Friday in November. This check will be made out directly to the church and is tax deductible. If you also have a student in Pathway’s K-8 program, this church donation is waived for high school.
We are grateful that our host church blesses us by providing their facility for our co-op. The church provides us with electricity, water, gas, HVAC, bathroom and trash supplies, along with their rooms, furniture and exterior playgrounds.
A $100 Deposit is required to hold your student's spot in each class. This $100 will be paid directly to each teacher for their respective class. This deposit must be received within 15 days of you receiving Pathway's paypal invoice to hold your student's spot. This $100 deposit will be deducted off of the total of the class. The entire balance will be due one month prior to the first day of class.
Payments for high school operating fees are paid to and handled by Pathway via your paypal invoice. Church donation checks are written directly to the church. All payments for classes are made directly to the instructor. Financial details and decisions for classes are between each instructor and the parent. Pathway leadership does not handle any financials for classes.
The operating expense, church donation, deposits and class fees are all non-refundable.
Upon registration, you will receive a Paypal invoice for Pathway's operating fees. The invoice will also include the instructor's information, in the notes section, so you may pay your deposit and class payment directly to the class instructor.
Once registration opens, we will fill classes until the class has reached its maximum. Returning students have priority registration prior to new students. Once a class is full, we will start a waiting list and let you know if a seat opens for your student. Our classes have a minimum number of seats that need to be filled in order for the class to take place. If the minimum has not been met, the class will be cancelled. Pathway will notify you by the end of the registration period if the class is going to be cancelled. Pathway reserves the right to give top priority to students based on the total number of classes for which they register and whether or not the family is also a member of Pathway's K-8 program.
