A few things to help keep co-op running smoothly.....


We intend to bring together homeschooling families to support each other in their calling of teaching their children at home. Our goal is to provide a wholesome educational experience in small group settings, while working in a cooperative manner, with parents to fulfill many different roles within the co-op. We are here to support each other, and help instill a lifetime love of learning in each other’s children.

What do you expect from parents?

  • Co-op is not a drop off group. You must be present on site for the entirety of the co-op day, even while your child is in class.. 

  • Make co-op a priority in your schedule. Our group only functions when everyone is pitching in and sharing in the work as well as the fun. If you cannot commit to attending every Wednesday for the predetermined calendar then this may not be the season for you to be a member. 

  • Complete your assigned jobs weekly. 

  • Guard your tongue. Speak encouragement. Beware of gossip. Be careful that your words are not hurtful to others. Once the words leave your mouth the damage is done.

  • Clean up after your family. 

  • Please be aware & respectful of the religious, educational, political & family differences that are represented in our co-op.

  • Actively work with teachers and leadership if behavior problems arrive concerning your child in class. 

  • Contact leadership before contacting parents to obtain permission to have class outside, use dyes or non washable paints, make plans or sessions for outside of co-op class sessions.


First, we’d like to thank you for offering to teach at Naked Apple Co-op.  This co-op couldn’t be what it is without people like you.  Thank you for giving to our children. We want to share some important information with you before you decide to teach.

Can anyone teach at Naked Apple?

Because Naked Apple Co-op operates as an outreach ministry, anyone may attend, but only those who sign that they acknowledge and agree to teach within Naked Apple’s Statement of Faith may teach.  When dealing with issues that differ between denominations, students will be directed back to their parents for answers.  (Examples would be details of baptism, speaking in tongues, etc.).

What is expected of me?

  • Show up to co-op regularly. We are counting on you to teach weekly so we ask that you don't take on that role if your season doesn't allow for you to be at co-op consistently. 

  • Be on time for co-op and your class.

  • Give a substitute lesson plan to leadership at the beginning of the year for any unforeseen or last minute absences. 

  • Be kind and compassionate to students. 

  • Proactively communicate with parents as needed, especially in academically based classes.

All classes and material will be reviewed and approved by the Naked Apple Co-op Leadership Team.  Our goal is to have a variety of classes, both enrichment and academic, for all ages of children. If there is an overwhelming amount of prospective class applications turned in for a certain age group or subject, there may be a chance that your class application will not be approved this year. Or we may contact you to see if you would be willing to adjust your age group to accommodate the co-ops needs.  Please do not take it personally if your class is not accepted this year.  We need to make sure there is a good balance of class choices for all families that attend.
