What is a homeschool co-op? It’s a group of homeschooling families that meet regularly for cooperative learning in arts, academics, or any subject they choose. This is also one place where many homeschooled kids received their “socialization” – spending time with children of diverse ages and receiving instruction from adults who are not their parents. Some co-ops are free while others have nominal fees to cover the cost of supplies.
As students grow older, parents may find teaching certain subjects intimidating – or perhaps they wish their child to experience a traditional classroom setting in preparation for college. These schools and programs offer classes to elementary, middle and high school homeschoolers who wish to benefit from their academics and extracurricular activities.
If you’re looking for swimming lessons, PE classes, or athletic teams to round out your homeschool extracurriculars, there’s no shortage of fantastic opportunities in Wichita!

Is homeschooling legal in Kansas? Yes! While “homeschools” are not a recognized entity in the state of Kansas, homeschooling is perfectly legal. Your homeschool must be registered as a “Non-Accredited Private School” with the Kansas State Department of Education (unless you are using a virtual school program).
