Excellence in Learning Community Co-op

Our Mission:

We are a community of students and families who desire to glorify God by uplifting, encouraging, equipping and supporting home educating families to disciple young men and women of character, influencing the world for Jesus Christ.

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. Philippians 4:8 NASB

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.)
