HOPE Christian Academy - Huntsville Org of Parent Educators-Support Group, Co-Op & School
 
We have also formed a Co-Op open to all HOPE Support Group Members. We meet on Tuesdays 10am-3:30pm at Shady Grove United Methodist Church, Toney, AL. For more information about the HOPE Christian Academy Co-Op, call Constance (256) 513-9212. Our Co-Op is only $60 per student per year. Here is a list of classes currently offered at the HOPE Christian Academy Co-Op:

    Let's Eat - Cooking and kitchen skills class (There will be tasting!)
    Money Talks - All about money and finance
    Computer Time - Internet saftey and computer upgrades/installation
    Science Club - Student led Science classes with lots of experiments
    Scrapbooking & Sign Language - These classes alternate weeks
 
 
HOPE started as simply a  HomeSchool Support Group for HomeSchoolers from all different cover schools. We still strive to fufill that mission to the best of our abilities.  Membership in our HomeSchool Support Group is still only $10 per year (September until August) and is NOT dependent upon registration with our cover school or Co-Op. We post all our events on our closed Facebook Group Page. Once we recieve your membership request, family information, and annual dues, you will be sent an invitation to join our Facebook Group.
 
Our field trips and competitions are open to members only. Membership fees will be used to pay for administrative costs and awards. There are also special discounts available at select Huntsville merchants to HOPE cardholders. Please contact us with any questions at (256) 513-9212.
