Thank you for considering

Pathway Christian

Homeschool Co-op

for your high school student!


Since 2007, Pathway Christian Co-op has been a thriving community of high school students that meets weekly, every Friday, in Huntersville, North Carolina.

We have nearly doubled in size since the 2019/2020 academic year, having served 45 families with 64 students, to most recently serving 90 families with 105 students for the 2023/2024 school year and we are still growing!

Our primary focus for classes are 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. Registration for our returning/existing families opens in February and applications for any new families interested in Pathway are made available by contacting us via email. New families are required to apply as part of our acceptance policy, which is detailed in our application. Our open houses occur in March and April and are by invitation only once approved.

These meetings are an excellent opportunity to meet with us, sit in during classes, and ask any questions. Please email us here if you are interested in Pathway and/or are looking to apply.


Our leaders, Sara, Cindy, Caroline, Deanna, and Michele have a combined 14+ years of co-op leadership experience, 15+ years of Pathway Christian Co-op attendance, and 60+ total years of combined homeschooling experience.


Our subjects (which vary year-to-year) include Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, American History, World History, Christianity/Worldview, Economics/Government, Current Events, Spanish 1, 2, & 3, Literature and Composition (World, British, American), Psychology, Sociology, Personal Finance, Intro to Computer Systems, Gavel Club/Public Speaking, American Sign Language (ASL 1 & 2), and Drama/Theater.  Our class sizes range from 5 to 25 students.

All Pathway High School classes provide exemplary, year long, in-person instruction which will prepare students for college and career success.  Our classes count as a full credit for your student's high school transcript.

Several of our classes offered are on a cyclical rotation; including History (World & American), Literature and Composition (World, British, American), as well as Christianity & Econ/Government and a new offering for this year: Current Events.

The majority of our classes are often offered every year, pending teacher availability. Please find detailed class information and our class schedule on the "Highschool Classes" tab in the dropdown menu above.


Pathway meets, in person, for 30 weeks each school year, beginning in August and ending in May. We have a break Friday approximately every six weeks. Our classes are offered a la carte, so students can individualize their schedules each year. Our instructors are highly qualified and passionate about their role in teaching Pathway students.

Parent Assistants


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


In addition to our volunteer leadership team, we also require a parent volunteer/assistant from every registered family. Any assistance parents can offer on Fridays is greatly appreciated, however, we understand that some families may have extenuating circumstances. For this, we will work to find a volunteer opportunity on a case by case basis. During the registration process, you will be required to choose what time and rotation that you will be available.

Please know that in order to operate the high school program, Pathway must have an assistant (student parent/guardian) present in each class or hangout room. 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. All assistants will be required to have a background check that Pathway provides at NO cost to you.

One parent or guardian from every registered high school student's family is REQUIRED to assist in some capacity during the school year. In order for us to operate every Friday, for 30 weeks, we will need in-person assistance.


When you register, please indicate which time slots/s you can serve as a room assistant either in a class or one of our hangout rooms that students occupy between classes. If you cannot commit to assisting every week, please choose a rotation that works with your schedule. These can be done weekly, bi-weekly, or even monthly for your convenience.


Please choose any class time(s) that will work best for you. You DO NOT need to be in your child's class, but if that is your preference, we will do everything we can to fulfill that request. 


If any parent has extenuating circumstances where you are not available on Fridays, we REQUIRE that you email us at the time of registration in order for us to work you directly to place you in one of our alternative assistant positions. Again, these are done only on a case by case basis. We are required to fill every class (18 this year) for 30 weeks of school, which equals 540 assistant spots to fill for the school year. As you can see, this is an arduous task that we are happy and blessed to do, but it takes all of us as a community/cooperative. We are so appreciative of every one of our students and families and cannot operate without you!

We will do our best to honor your requests and will contact you if there is a slight change in placement choice

Once the registration period closes in early August, we will request help for the classes not covered if we do not have enough volunteers for each class,


​​​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 will be required for each student upon registration. 

This is a flat rate fee of $20 for 1 class and $40 for 2 or more classes. These fees are used by Pathway to pay for insurance, legal fees, background checks, and for any needs that may arise for our co-op throughout the school year. 

A Church Fee will also be required for each student upon registration. This fee is required for use of their facilities as it provides us with electricity, water, gas, HVAC, bathroom and trash supplies, along with their rooms, furniture and exterior grounds.

This is a flat rate fee of $20 for 1 class and $40 for 2 or more classes. Pathway pays Lake Norman Baptist Church directly for the use of their facilities for the entire school year.

**If you also have a student in Pathway’s K-8 program, these fees are waived for high school**

Class Deposits and Tuition

A $100 Deposit is required to hold your student's placement 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 place following registration. This $100 deposit will be deducted off of the total cost of the class. The entire balance will be due one month prior to the first day of class, unless financial arrangements are made with the teacher/s.

Financial details and decisions for classes after registering are between the instructor and the parent. Pathway leadership does not handle any financials for the individual classes. If you need to make payment arrangements, please contact the teacher directly as they are handled on a case by case basis.

All Pathway High School classes provide exemplary, year long, in-person instruction, which will prepare students for college and career success. Our classes count as a full credit for your student's high school transcript.

Financial Details

Payments for both the high school operating fee and the church fee are paid to and handled by Pathway via your Paypal invoice that you receive within 15 days following registration. 


All payments for classes are made directly to the instructor. 

Financial details and and payment arrangement decisions for classes are handled between each individual instructor and the parent.

Pathway leadership does not handle any financials for individual classes. 


**All payments made for operating expenses, the church fee,

and class deposits are non-refundable**


Registration / Application

Upon registration, you will receive a Paypal invoice for Pathway's operating fees and church fees.  The invoice will have an attachment that includes the instructor's information allowing you to pay your deposit directly to the class instructor. This will secure your child's placement in each registered class and will be your verification that your student is registered.  You will not receive a separate email.  Registrations will be processed within 1-2 weeks of receipt.


Once registration opens, we will continue to fill classes until the class has reached capacity. 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 and work to issue any deposit refunds.

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.

For new families, Pathway high school will review each application as they are submitted and will notify each family of their approval and provide details for our interview nights via email. Once you have been accepted, we will open registration to your family.
