Q:

Do I have to do classical education at home in order to attend your co-op?

A:

Our members manage their at-home education in many different ways. However, we ask that all members become familiar with current publishers and philosopies in classical education so that they can most effectively contribute at co-op together. All our classes and curriculum are based on a classical education model that includes the trivium. Circe, Classical Academic Press, Institute for Excellence in Writing, The Well-Trained Mind Press, and other classical education publishers are used to guide our curriculum and scheduling choices.

Q:

What is my parent commitment?

A:

The parent who primarily helps do the school at home is required to be at co-op when their children are at co-op. This parent will be assigned to lead teach at least one class during our 5-period school day, and will assist other classes during the other class periods. Additionally, the parents is responsible for teaching the assigned curriculum material to the children at home during the week. 

Q:

What is the kid commitment for my children?

A:

Children are expected to come to class prepared with the materials listed in their syllabus. Most classes will assign lessons to be completed at home before coming to co-op in order for the teacher to present a relevant and impactful presentation or activity in class.

Q:

What is the cost?

A:

There is no tuition cost to attend Denton Classical Co-op. We are a true co-op where parents are the teachers. We place parents in classes that draw on their strengths and we provide training and support in the summer and throughout the year as needed. Therefore we are able to offer high quality classes for free. Even though we offer tuition-free classes, there are some costs associated with membership in Denton Classical Co-op.
