We're a co-op and a community.

HOP is a homeschool co-op and support group whose purpose is to provide support and opportunities to enrich the homeschooling experience. We welcome all homeschooling families, regardless of homeschooling method or educational philosophy. We aim to foster a community that supports tolerance and understanding for people with differing beliefs and experiences.

There is no school equal to a decent home and no teacher equal to a virtuous parent.

— Mohandas K. Gandhi

About HOP

HOP co-op is an interest-led and student-driven co-op for all homeschool students and families.

Most of our members live in Pinellas County, but homeschoolers from all counties are welcome to join our co-op. HOP is not only a day of enrichment, but also a day where we all look forward to spending time with each other, making new friends, and supporting each other in our homeschooling journey. Please read all of our Policies & Procedures carefully before registering. Our teachers are comprised of parents, HOP students, and outside educators that we source from the community at large. Our classes are aimed at a variety of ages, generally from age 2 to adult. (Yes, some of our parents are interested in taking classes too!) There are two semesters per year at HOP (Fall and Spring). Each semester has 12 weeks worth of classes, and we meet once a week, on WEDNESDAYS. Classes are 55 minutes long. Learn more
