Our co-op owes its longevity and success to the Lord, Who works through all the parents contributing their ideas and volunteering their time and expertise every semester. Not every parent teaches a class, and we certainly appreciate those who do teach, but we also value parents who assist teachers, set up, clean up, organize events, encourage and help each other. We parents determine the classes and actually run the co-op. By working together and adapting to fit members' needs, our co-op thrives and all the children and parents benefit!

Our members meet for co-op classes on Tuesdays for 14 weeks in the fall and 14 weeks in the spring at Coosada Baptist Church near Millbrook, Alabama, to learn, socialize and support one another. Academy Days Co-op is designed for high school students, but we also include preschool through junior high classes so the entire family can participate. We'd love to have your family join us!

Academy Days Co-op is not a church school.
If your child is compulsory age, then you must comply with state regulations and either enroll in a church school or notify the local superintendent of your homeschool intentions. Although many families in Academy Days belong to the cover school Outlook Academy, we welcome families from any homeschool covering or no covering at all.

As a Christian homeschool co-op, we base our guidelines on precepts from the Bible, and classes are taught from a Christian worldview. Nevertheless, as an inclusive group, we welcome all families from diverse backgrounds, beliefs, and homeschool styles.

Academy Days Co-op has been serving the homeschool community since the 2006-2007 school year. Since then, more than 75% of our graduates have progressed to college or university (77.7%). We are very proud of our industrious students and dedicated team teachers! Of course, college is not a prerequisite for success in life, and we also applaud those graduating students over the years who have successfully pursued employment, entrepreneurship, missions, or the military instead of college.

Our success must be one of the reasons why so many co-ops are following our format and policies. Indeed, we are thankful that other homeschoolers have found our operations to be so useful as to be copied to create their own co-ops. We have been working out the kinks in Academy Days Co-op since 2006. Apparently, by following the Lord's Will, we have done something right, and they think so as well. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and we appreciate the compliment.

 

"Thank you so much for co-op.
We have learned so many things
and are better cooks, chemists, and historians
because of our time spent there."
~ Lisa, former co-op parent
