Upstate Homeschool Co-op is a cooperative for homeschooling families, offering a variety of core and elective classes to assist parents as they homeschool. We do not take the place of a school, but come alongside homeschool families to offer classes that will assist parents as they teach their children. Our cooperative is academic in nature and does require attendance and completion of assignments.
