THINK stands for ‘Triangle Homeschoolers’ Interactive Network of Knowledge’. Our goal in creating a homeschool cooperative is multi-faceted. A homeschool cooperative allows families to regularly interact with other homeschooling families in a more formal setting, mimicking a classroom environment but still allowing for the flexibility and individuality of traditional homeschooling. Our co-op groups offer a variety of classes and opportunities for homeschooled students to experience a group learning environment. Each co-op session is planned with input from the students and parents alike to ensure that the co-op session will be as successful as possible. Our homeschool cooperatives require the participation of both students and parents in order to function. Since parents are teachers and class sizes are small, students get the best of both worlds. We believe that this arrangement provides an optimal environment for students and parents alike. Parents are required to participate in teaching and facilitation of the co-op, and to be on-site unless otherwise noted.
Triangle Homeschoolers hosts three co-op groups: Elementary for students PreK-4th grade; Middle School for students in 5th-7th grades, and High School for students 8th grade through 12th. The grade/age suggestions are flexible; our co-ops are run by committee, and our goal is for each student to be placed in the group that will best meet their needs.
For each co-op group, and each co-op session, there may be registration and tuition fees that apply. They vary by age group, and semester. We strive to keep these fees low and reasonable and any surplus can carry over to the next semester in most cases. The registration fee in most cases is non-refundable to ensure commitment, and tuition should be paid by the due date (which will vary per group).
In order to be considered for participation in our co-op groups, you must be an active member of TH Meet Up for a minimum of 3 months. Members of the TH Meet Up group are eligible to attend a sample day if they would like.
