REACH Homeschool Co-op is a Christian organization of homeschooling families that offers a variety of enrichment, supplemental, and academic classes to its students in Richardson, Texas. Our parents bring together a variety of diverse gifts, talents, interests, and other special training to create interesting classes that meet the needs of the students in our co-op.
We meet on Friday mornings from 8:30am-1pm for four hour-long classes and a lunch break, with an optional 5th hour. Our classes run for 14 weeks each semester.
We are currently accepting new member registrations for the 2020-2021 school year.
If you are interested in learning more about REACH for 2020-2021, please contact us after January of 2020, and we will schedule a time for you to visit us for a co-op day. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We ask that all interested families visit REACH before applying.

Who Can Be Members?
REACH members are Christian homeschooling families who:
- Are professing Christians who have agreed to lead and manage their respective co-op activities according to Biblical Christian principles.
- Make a year long commitment to the other REACH families.
- Are willing and able to teach in the co-op where needed.
- Support and reinforce the complete REACH Statement of Faith.
What is unique about REACH?
While we strive to offer enrichment and academic classes we also desire to cultivate authentic community among supportive homeschooling families. How do we do this? One of the main ways is by having Mom’s Night Out get-togethers, High School and Junior High events, Field Trips, Service Projects, and Family Fellowships.
- Parent Participation
Another way we are unique is that our parents are very involved in our time together at REACH and at REACH events. The parental involvement of REACH families, especially in teaching our classes, makes REACH affordable. All of our students, including our teens, have a good deal of adult supervision, and our moms enjoy close relationships with each other.
REACH is one of the best homeschooling co-op deals in town. New members pay a $175 administrative fee that helps pay for our building use and other overhead expenses. Almost all classes a student takes will have a fee connected to it. These vary depending on the class and can be found listed in the Class Catalog.
How do I apply to REACH?
Please wait to apply until you are certain you can fulfill a year long commitment to REACH. Once you are certain you can make this commitment, simply download the New Member Registration Packet and read through it carefully, fill it out, and mail it to the address given in the packet.
As we are a small co-op of about 45-50 families, we cannot always accommodate every family who wishes to join our group. Our classes tend to fill up, and at that point, we will close registration for families with children in that age group. If you are interested in REACH, please contact us as soon as possible!
