Excellence in Learning Community Co-op:

A Faith Centered Homeschooling Village

This year, ELCC served 370 homeschooling students in our community through co-op classes and events.  In addition, we reached over 850 families with homeschooling resources, support, and training sessions to help them in their homeschooling.  

The past year has presented unique challenges and a 600% growth in homeschooling across the country.  Our community and financial partners enabled us to meet this challenge and help many first-time homeschooling families to educate their children at home.   Their donations greatly impacted our community and directly supported parents and families during this difficult time.  On behalf of these local families, THANK YOU for your support!

SCRIP program for helping raise funds for classes

We recommend that homeschooling families join HSLDA and Christian Home Educators of Ohio (CHEO). Even if you never experience legal trouble yourself, your membership will help enable other homeschooling families to get the legal help they need and will help defend our right to homeschool here in Ohio. Membership in HSLDA also gives you personal access to the legal staff; HSLDA's experienced high school, special needs, and toddlers to tweens consultants; and discounts through HSLDA's PerX program. (For more information about HSLDA's many benefits, see www.hslda.org.)
