Registration begins now, complete registration form and submit registration fees to reserve space in class. Final decision on class offerings will be determined by June 15, based on number of students enrolled. Book information will be given at that time. Virtual School curriculum cost for this pilot year is $98 per class - no additional books are required. Please do not purchase book before you are notified that the class minimums are met. All registration fees are non-refundable except in the event that minimum registration is not met or class exceeds maximum.

Parents are responsible for text books or virtual school curriculum, initial material fee, and may be asked to provide miscellaneous supplies or make a small donation to cover additional costs if necessary throughout the year.

To offer this type of diversified program, we ask that all parents find a place to serve, whether it be teaching, assisting, grading papers, record keeping, setting up, tearing down, cleaning up, organizing parties, arranging field trips – or ??? The co-op will only function with your cooperation, which allows us to keep the costs down. ( All teaching materials will be supplied.)

This is a ministry of Gateway Christian Fellowship and we do not want to turn anyone away due to finances. Individual and family plans may be arranged.
