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.

A. Yes, we run background checks on each parent member. There is a $15 charge that you pay at registration to cover the Background Check.

A. yes, when you enroll as a family your children must enroll in age appropriate classes for all three hours.
