Classes

Classes are determined by the interests and abilities of the current co-op members so it varies widely by semester. While our stated purpose is to provide enrichment, interest-based activities to students, that occasionally includes academic subjects, but academics is not the focus of our group. Register early to be part of the class decision making process. Once the schedule is released, students may sign up for classes. A typical Thursday schedule is:

12:30 Gather for lunch and social time
12:45 Help Set up for Classes
1:10 – 2:00 1st Class
2:10-3:00 2nd Class
3:10- 4:00: Optional 3rd hour classes, clean up and social time

Our classes are held in two five week sessions.  Typically a student will take two classes per session for a total of four classes.  Occasionally a class may run for ten weeks or other options.  Here are some examples of past classes:
