Our Free Co-op!
Not ready to purchase a membership just yet? No biggie! Our goal is to offer services for everyone. In fact, we have a virtual homeschool group that is completely free for you to join!
We offer core subjects in the form of live classes weekly for K-8 students. However, our co-op also extends past K-8, and provides mentoring, college admissions assistance, and more for high school students as well.
How It Works:
1.) Sign up
Fill out a brief application so we can get to know you better and understand why you’d like to be a part of this co-op. The brief application simply allows us to confirm whether you are a parent or student, and helps us to determine what programs would be best for you.
2.) Join the community
After filling out the application, you will receive an email with the link to join our co-op. Joining our online community hub, hosted on a platform called LuMa, gives you complete access to the virtual co-op. From here, you can access links to live classes, resources, and a space to connect with other homeschoolers.
Sign in often for a chance to win prizes!
3.) Attend classes and enjoy!
Since students under 13 cannot have their own accounts, parents are in charge of accessing classes from our community hub and helping their students attend on time. Class times are listed inside the community hub.

Log on and Participate Once Per Week
Being a part of a co-op is a commitment, so please make sure you are participating and contributing to our growing community.
There is a premium level membership which provides you with access to more benefits (starting in Fall 2021). With this monthly membership, you will be provided with a tutor for a set number of hours per week, weekly parent training sessions, bi-weekly exclusive student classes, and instructional materials for at-home use. The price of this monthly premium co-op membership is 29.99 per month. We can work with families who need discounts (including military families).
Be grateful, encouraging, diligent, and humble. Know when to speak up for yourself and when to listen. Respect nature, respect the belief of others that differ from your own and respect the rules of conduct of CAO and our co-op.
The students and parents in our co-op are expected to uphold integrity by acting and reacting in a respectful manner, respecting the opinions and beliefs of others, having good and healthy dialog in our discussions and in interactions with peers.
In our co-op, we instill the value of Good Citizenship by providing students and parents with opportunities to serve the community, respect elders, practice servant-leadership skills, and advocate for justice to improve society as a whole.
What does this mean? At our core, Hebraic Ethicism simply means that our families honor and embrace the Hebraic principles of wisdom, courage, knowledge, environmentalism, and analysis of factual evidence. We advocate for justice, peace, and love in our communities. We allow ourselves space to seek out the truth on an individual level. These ideals can be embraced regardless of a family’s background.
