2022-2023 Homeschool Co-ops & Educational Programs

Co-ops and educational programs are such great ways to connect your children and you to other families who are homeschooling. Your children can take classes that you may not want to teach (such as a cooking class) or just don’t have the equipment for, such as chemistry. They are also a terrific way of meeting other homeschool moms. Some of my closest friends are those who I met at a local homeschool co-op.
* Please note that I am not recommending a particular co-op or program. This is purely an informational  listing of what is available in the area.  Be sure to investigate, research, and visit the co-op or program you are interested in attending.  Contact the co-op/program to see what is the best for your family and aligns with your values and worldview. 
If you have a great co-op or program and would like to be added to the list, please contact me.

  1. Hi Lisa!

    I run a co-op in Lebanon, OH called Bright Ideas. Would you be willing to add our co-op to your list? This was our first year and I’m trying to find every avenue possible to spread the word.

    Please let me know if there is a way for Bright Ideas to be added.

    You can find us on Facebook at @BrightIdeasOH.

    Thank you!

    Mandy Martinson



    • Hi Mandy,
      Of course! Someone else from the co-op asked me to add you and I did earlier this week. I am so glad there are more co-ops in the area. Thank you for starting a co-op and may it be rewarding and successful for you and all of the families who join.


  2. Thank you for maintaining this list! Would you be willing to add Excellence in Learning Community Co-op to your list? You can find us on Facebook @ELCCHomeschool
