What is a Schoolhouse? Essentially, it’s a homeschool co-op utilizing curriculum, which meets twice-weekly in
community with other families, inside a local church.

Who are the teachers? Parents in each Schoolhouse sign up to teach classes
based on the 400+ curriculum (Preschool through 12th grade) courses
available at Classes are taught according to the
Lesson Plans and Teachers’ Guides included in a membership to Classes and work-texts stem from a Biblical
worldview. No Common Core.

Do I have to pay to join a Schoolhouse? The only requirement is to have a
current membership to, joining thousands of other
families in the U.S. and around the world who are also members. No per-child
fees. No per-class fees. No enrollment fees. Teachers do not charge for classes.
Members of ST are invited to join, and there is no charge.

Is there a discount code? For the pilot program(s) starting in the fall in East
Tennessee, there is a steep discount for new
member families. The church that hosts the Schoolhouse or the Director can
provide those coupon codes.

Starting with the Fall 2023–24 school year, WHICH DAYS will families
meet at the Schoolhouse? Generally families gather together twice weekly,
and the Director of each ST Community sets up the Schoolhouse (including
securing a building site) according to the needs of the families within the new
community. This first pilot program in East Tennessee will commence
Wednesday, August 30, 2023, and will operate every Wednesday and Friday
until early May 2024.

What kinds of classes will be at the first Schoolhouse this fall? A meeting
will be scheduled for late June to go over course descriptions and to discover
which parents will teach those classes. Perhaps you’ll see yourself in one of
the 400+ courses available. Please contact Christin Williams
([email protected]) or Gena Suarez ([email protected])
for an invitation to the first TriCities Schoolhouse Setup meeting in June.
