NBHE Affiliate State Groups

What our co-op are all about:

  • Co-op is short for “cooperation”, a co-op is basically a group where families cooperate to provide a better education for their children
  • Most NBHE co-ops provide educational classes for a wide age range of children
  • Classes are taught by NBHE parents
  • NBHE believes that any parent has the gifting and ability needed to teach: the key is selecting a class that you are interested in and that you believe will be fun and helpful – anything from cooking to economics!
  • Every member of the family is encouraged to be a part of the co-op.  NBHE particularly seeks to engage not only mothers, but also fathers and grandparents
  • All co-op attendees are expected to participate in running the co-op – even if you are not teaching, you can assist in many other ways: babysit, clean, prepare snacks – everyone is vital to the success of the group
  • NBHE co-ops not only foster the education growth of the child, but also promote building family to family relationships: NBHE co-op provide the perfect arena to meet and enjoy other homeschooling families
  • NBHE co-ops provide a support group for parents – we believe that you as a parent need to seek the encouragement of being around other parents who share your passion
  • NBHE co-ops encourage the organization of family friendly events – fieldtrips, couple’s night out, father daughter banquets, mother son luncheons, etc.
  • The success of NBHE co-op is built on the involvement and dedication of parents


What our co-op(s) are not:

  • Our co-ops are not a day care – parental participation is required
  • Our co-ops do not replace the role of the parent, they simply supplement it
  • Our co-ops do not replace schooling in the home – NBHE co-op usually meet on a bi monthly basis, thus most of the schooling continues to be done at home
  • Our co-ops do not follow particular curriculum but rather the agenda is tailored to the needs of the individuals
