Open House!

Now taking enrollments for the 2008-2009 school year.
Open to home school and cyber school families, Echo is a grades K - 12 Christian based co-op, meeting one day a week on Tuesdays at Camp of the Old Mill near Downingtown (off route 322/route 82). Echo's focus is to provide a place for the whole family to fellowship and learn.

Upper grades (7th - 12th)
A college prep oriented co-op offering the core subjects of History, English, Science & Math in both the Jr high and Sr high programs. Echo tracks to the PHAA diploma program though families may choose which diploma program (if any) they would like to use. Specific courses offered will depend upon interest and demand. Electives have not yet been determined. Preference is given to students enrolling full-time in the core subjects of English, math, history and science and then we will take students that wish to enroll for one or more courses. We welcome and accept drop-off students. Classes are limited to 15 students.

Elementary (K - 6th)
In the elementary program Echo offers academically enriching classes including History, Science, critical thinking/math skills, and writing/literature. In addition to these core subjects, other classes will be added if there is interest, eg. music, art, drama, etc. There is a pre-k time and baby toddler group for moms with children in the core k - 5/6 grade program but have young children as well. Moms stay for the day and help out.

Open houses are April 1, and April 29
