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.

In 2019/2020, we served 45 families with 64 students, in 2020/2021 we served 59 families with 78 students, and in 2021/2022 we served 75 families with 91 students.

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. Our information meetings begin in February, and our open houses in March.

These meetings are an excellent opportunity to meet with us and ask any questions and we highly recommended new families to attend.   Please join us to visit, ask questions, and learn about our classes!

 

Our leaders, Sara, Stacie, Cindy, and Caroline have a combined 10 years of co-op leadership experience, 14 years of Pathway Christian Co-op attendance, and 51 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, 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, 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.

The majority of our other classes are often offered every year, pending teacher availability.

 

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 need parent volunteers. Any assistance parents can offer on Fridays is greatly appreciated. 

 

When applying, each parent will be asked to pick a volunteer time/class.  Please know that Pathway cannot operate or have classes without parent participation.  Each class must have an assistant (adult) present - 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 preventing you from volunteering on Fridays, please let us know during the registration process.  Thank you!

Once the registration period closes in 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 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.

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 grounds.

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 considered a 100% tax deductible charitable donation. If you also have a student in Pathway’s K-8 program, this church donation is 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.  This $100 deposit will be deducted off of the total cost of the class. The entire balance will be due two months prior to the first day of class. 

Financial details and decisions for classes are between the instructor and the parent. Pathway leadership does not handle any financials for classes. If you have a financial hardship and 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 high school operating fees are paid to and handled by Pathway via your paypal invoice.  Church donations are paid directly to the church via a paper check or by using their online system - we will provide the link for you.  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. 

 

All payments made for operating expenses, the church donation,

and class deposits are non-refundable

 

Registration / Application

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) allowing you to pay your deposit directly to the class instructor in order to secure your child's placement in each registered class. The paypal invoice will be your verification that your student is registered for class.  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 allowable 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 registration as they are submitted and will notify each family of their approval and acceptance into the program within two weeks of registration submission.
