The EDGE exists to create a Christ-centered community for those who are called to disciple their children through homeschooling.
We are a homeschooling cooperative (co-op) comprised of Christian families united voluntarily to meet the common goal of discipling and tutoring our children through enrichment education opportunities. We believe it is our responsibility to teach our own children while finding ways to enhance the lives of others that are on the same journey. We strive to be a shining light in the community and be the visible hands and feet of Jesus Christ.

Co-op meets on Tuesdays (August-April) at:
Seymour Heights Christian Church
122 Boyds Creek Hwy
Seymour, TN 37865

Q. What is a Cooperative?
A. A cooperative (co-op) is where members voluntarily meet and work together for a common goal and share the benefits of their labor.  As a cooperative the EDGE functions by each parent volunteering in areas they feel capable to serve, while their children are tutored by others in classroom settings. 

Q. Do parents have to stay at co-op?
A. Yes, not only must they stay, but they must volunteer their time as a tutor or assistant. 

Q. Do you run criminal background checks on the adults involved in the co-op?
A. Yes, we run background checks on each parent member. There is a $20 charge that you pay at registration to cover the Background Check. 

Q. Do my PreK - 8th grade children have to be enrolled in a course all three hours of classes?
A. Yes, when you enroll as a family your children must enroll in age appropriate classes for all three hours. 

Q. Can high school students enroll in just one or two classes?
A. Yes, high school students are allowed to come for their choice of class(es), but they must still have a parent attend and volunteer while they are in class. 

Q. Are EDGE tutors/teachers paid?
A. No, all teachers are parent volunteers who tutor in subjects that they have experience in.

Q.  Is the $170 Membership Fee per family, per year?
A. Yes this fee covers the entire family for the full year. 

Q. Are classes year long or just semester long?

The 2022-2023 school year registration date is May 17th

Each family will be allowed to sign-in and get in line starting at 11:15am and doors will open at 12:15pm. Registration is on a first come, first served basis.

You will need to be present for a short information session that will explain registration details starting at 12:30pm. 

Please be prepared to be here anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and a half. Many people find it easier to not bring their children to registration day when possible.

Class descriptions will be listed under "Co-op Courses" soon. Please make sure to read the Handbook (link below) and read through the class options (when uploaded) so that you are familiar with them for each of your children before coming.

Many classes will fill up before we finish registering our returning families the morning of the 17th, so make sure that you have a 2nd choice picked out. 

 Remember that students can enroll in classes designed for a younger grade, but they cannot enroll in classes designed for grades higher than the grade level registered with your Umbrella school. Students Pre K- 8th grades MUST enroll in classes all three hours.
