Family Rate: The first three oldest children (living in the same household) pay full price.  Any additional children may attend the co-op for free with the exception of the art supply fee.

Payments/Scholarships: We never want finances to hinder a family from participating in the co-op. If you would like to participate in the co-op but finances would not allow it, please contact Angela for arrangements.  Payment arragnements can be made, and discounts are available.

Parents’ Involvement/Responsibility: While parents are welcome to observe, help, and be involved as much as they would like, we only ask that a parent volunteer one week of co-op per semester.  This is just one week per family, not per child.  There are many ways to volunteer: helping in the nursery, assisting a teacher in a class, assisting with clean up.  Most volunteers will simply be assiting the teacher in a class.  Contact Angela to sign up for the week you’d like to help.  If you are unable to volunteer, we ask that you  pay a $20 fee per semester.  We want to continue to minister to moms by giving  you a day each week to complete tasks of your choosing, but we could also use a hand here and there and will enjoy getting to know you better as we serve together.

The Dunlap Co-op is not a school.  We are a ministry offering
weekly classes to enrich and encourage what an individual is being
taught and is learning outside of our classes.  The parents of
our students are responsible for their own adherence to state standards,
grading, and end result of how they use the information they receive from the
classes offered through this ministry.

Do you know 100% for sure you are going to heaven?
