Program Description

  • We meet at Southern Calvert Baptist Church in Lusby, MD on TUESDAYS from September to May.

  • We offer a variety of classes for students in K-12th grade.

  • Our classes consist of core classes and electives. 

  • Classes offered depend upon the interests and skill sets of participating parents as we are a parent-led co-op.  Because of this, our registration fees can stay at a reasonable price.

  • We also have Nursery, Toddler, & Pre-K classes that will remain in their rooms for the length of co-op time.

  • Meeting dates are subject to change based on church activities.

Parent Obligations

One of the fundamental principles of home education is the primary role of parental authority for the education and welfare of their children.  Parents are required to do the following: comply with the Maryland home school law (Annotated Code of Maryland: Education §7-301a); oversee the student’s work and behavior; ensure the safety of their children; be informed; volunteer their time for the benefit of the group; and model Godly behavior.  Our Fellowship is designed as a cooperative effort for families who educate their children at home. This co-op is not an umbrella school. In order for the Fellowship to run smoothly, one adult per family is required to actively teach or assist and must remain on the premises during the time co-op is in operation.

Student Responsibilites

  • Act in a well-behaved and respectful manner toward all adults, instructors, and peers.

  • Come prepared to participate in activities.

  • Complete activities cooperatively and with a good attitude.

  • Take care of church property and equipment.

  • Complete homework that is assigned by instructors on time.

Special Events and Activities

  • Field trips, some will be local; and some will be within a 2 hour drive (See the Field Trips page for locations)

  • Teen night and a movie night for younger ones

  • Parent's night events

  • End of year party at a local park if the weather permits.

Cancellations Due to Inclement Weather

If Calvert County or St. Mary’s County Public Schools are closed or have a delayed opening due to inclement weather, classes will be cancelled and no email message will be sent.  Please do not call the church office.

2020-2021 Safety Guidelines

  • We strongly recommend students and adults aged 6 and older wear face masks for the duration of co-op.  Co-op families must enter via the double doors in the back of the church building.

  • Class sizes will be limited. Students will be spaced out.  

  • As students enter a classroom, they will receive hand sanitizer.

  • Classrooms will be sanitized prior to usage. When a class ends and the students leave, teachers will wipe down the tables, chairs, door knobs, and light switches. Cleaning supplies will be provided.

  • Students will have their own supplies. They will not have communal supplies. When co-op ends, spaces used will be sanitized by the co-op leadership team. Students and adults will not use or enter the welcome center or sanctuary.
