Our Cooperative Community is a TRUE Cooperative. Meaning this fun and the awesome day is put on by us parents in order to give our kids a taste of some really neat classes and allows them to make everlasting friendships as well which meets the need of the social aspect in homeschool life.
Parents are required to stay the entire day and teach as needed.
The classes are meant to be fun and give the kids a basic exposure in that subject. Don't expect them to leave with major knowledge or speaking a foreign language.
We are a community, that fellowships during a long day of big fun.

Member Requirements for Cooperative Community Participation
To be a part of Aspire's Cooperative Community Class Day, each Member Family must adhere to the following:
Be a fully vetted Aspire Member Family (all background checks passed, important docs signed, yearly fees paid)
Provide at least ONE ADULT VOLUNTEER per family that will be required to stay and volunteer for 4 of the 5 class hours each class day. The non-volunteer class hour can be spent in our Parent Lounge, but the adult volunteer cannot leave campus.
Commit to being present for each class day! We only have 8 per semester and it is vital to our program that our adult volunteers be present. Only 2 absences will be allowed per semester to maintain participation in the Cooperative Community Class Day.
Your family will be asked to contribute food to our Parent Lounge a few times a semester. Trust us! This will be the highlight of your day and you won't mind providing some yummy sustenance when it's your turn!
Your family will have a small approximately 15-20 minute reset classroom duty at the end of each class day. Many hands make light work, and we encourage our families to get your kids involved in contributing to their co-op class day! We raise funds over the summer in order to pay a cleaning crew to come to EACH CAMPUS so that we do not have to do the heavy lifting of cleaning any longer! This is thanks to YOUR donations/funds raised towards this AND to our Leadership Team for looking out for us always.
