Welcome to Crestview Christian Homeschool Academy Cooperative
Psalm 121

Our mission is to glorify God by building an intentional community to facilitate the success
of homeschooling families through educational and social experiences.

We believe homeschooling is a home-based, parent-directed, privately funded, Christ-centered education. To that end, our group meets together to build community through fellowship and through classes that are designed to complement (not replace) parent efforts to homeschool and to encourage parents as they observe the Biblical commands to train their children. Deut. 6:6-7 states, These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down, and when you get up. Prov. 1:8 says, Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction & do not forsake your mother's teaching.

We serve the Greenville South Carolina area homeschool community

Do members need to agree with the Statement of Faith?

Yes, the Statement of Faith can be found here. We are a Christ-centered cooperative with like-minded families.

Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Philippians 4:1-2

Do I have to volunteer?

Yes, we are cooperative and all members volunteer. We want to get to know you and the best way to do this is by serving together.  If you have children who are not in classes they are welcome to come with you and help.  The volunteer commitment time is 8 service points which can be found in the newsletter under the Sign-Up-Genius link. There are lots of options and ways to serve and we have done our best to make this flexible and allow you to choose what works best for your schedule. Please keep in mind this is the minimum commitment, and many of our members choose to serve over and above what is required.

We do not have an opt-out fee. We are a cooperative that builds community.

How much are the classes and membership fee?

Class registration and fees are listed on our website under the "Class Registration" tab. This tab is available when registration is open. Please click on the class to find the information. (Fee is listed to the far right)

Our Student Commitment Fee is also located on the first page of the website when we are accepting new members. 

Our existing members receive a discount on our Student Commitment Fee (SCF) as well as registration for classes. 

 

Do I have to teach at the cooperative?    

Although we are a cooperative you are not required to teach, but we do have members who teach. If you are not teaching we would love for you to use your gifts and talents in various areas of your choice to serve our families. As a member, you are welcome to stay on campus and build community or come and go as needed.  We are a community and want to support your homeschool efforts and come alongside you. 

What is the difference between Student Committment Fee and Registration?

The Student Commitment Fee is the cost per student for your family to join Crestview. Once you are a member you will be allowed to register and participate in our community annually.

Registration cost is the cost for each member for a specific class. 

Materials Fee is the cost for materials for a specific class.  

We do not have a family fee to help offset the cost for families with multiple children.

 

Do you have preschool classes or K5 classes?

No, we do not have preschool or K5 classes. There are lots of opportunities for preschool and K5 classes throughout Greenville. 

What curriculum is used?  

Our cooperative classes are designed to complement (not replace) parents’ efforts to homeschool their children and are taught from a biblical worldview. We offer enrichment and academic classes available for Kindergarten through High School. Our classes are offered collegiate style as well as à la carte. Meaning, each class is independent; families can choose one class while others choose a full day. We do offer a full-based curriculum within the subject in many of our classes. Fulll-based within the subject meaning we have activities, text, media, assignments, and projects all from a biblical world perspective within the class. Some classes approach the course from a Classical, Charlotte Mason or Unit studies foundation, but all courses have an experiential learning approach. Each class is unique and has varying degrees of what is required, and this information is found in the class course description on our website under the “registration” tab. On this same tab, you will find what is required, the curriculum, and the cost of each class. 

Is there a dress code? 

Yes, more information can be found here.

Is Crestview a business?

Crestview Christian Homeschool Cooperative is a 501(c)3 non-profit homeschool ministry. It is a board-driven and board-directed cooperative. 

Who is the director of Crestview?

Crestview has never had one director since its inception, but rather a Shepherding Board of Directors (SBOD). These directors are all volunteers and serve the Lord by supporting the cooperative ministry. The directors of the cooperative oversee the mission, purpose, members, and administration and approve all functions of the cooperative. 

The SBOD articulates the mission and develops strategies to achieve it. The SBOD monitors and holds all leaders accountable for doing their job. This is done by leading by example, then delegating and monitoring. The SBOD oversees and ensures good stewardship of resources, and maintains financial accountability and solvency which is done by approving and overseeing the annual budget. The SBOD also ensures legal compliance, obeying laws, making good judgments, setting aside personal interests, and acting in the best interest of ministering to our members. The SBOD ensures there are no conflicts of interest and ensures full disclosure of conflicts between outside organizations.  At Crestview, we are a board-driven and board-directed cooperative. 

Shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight not under compulsion, but voluntarily, according to the will of God; and not for sordid gain, but with eagerness; nor yet as lording it over those allotted to your charge, but proving to be examples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory. 1 Peter 5:2-4

Take a moment to thank and encourage our directors to press on.
