Registration is open for Eastside Homeschool Co-op classes!
Welcome to the New 2015-16 School Year!
Our New Registration System
Our volunteers and board members have been hard at work this summer initiating a new registration system. This new system will allow parents the independence of registering and changing their child’s classes, easily adding classes and keeping track of payments. This new system will alleviate the work load of our volunteer registrar and also allow teachers to easily access their class rosters. We are looking forward to sharing it with you!
|We have set up new accounts for all families who enrolled over the spring and summer. In order to have to access to your account, please click the “forget password” on the following link and a password will be sent to the email address on file. Please provide the email address you used during registration. If you have any additional questions about logging in for the first time please contact us!||

Eastside Homeschool Co-op is an inclusive community offering academic enrichment and social support to homeschooling families on the eastern side of Lake Washington. We are a diverse group, and our member families represent the full spectrum of homeschooling philosophies and practices, from unschooling to participation in the school district ALE programs. We welcome families from all cultural and religious backgrounds and we strive to maintain an environment where all students can feel comfortable sharing their unique ideas, beliefs, traditions, interests and talents.
How Co-op works?
Eastside Homeschool Co-op is a member-run organization. That means that as a co-op member, you have a voice in what classes, clubs, and social events you’d like to see offered here. It also means that you take responsibility for a small part of the care, maintenance, and growth of our organization. Members participate in planning meetings throughout the year, and are welcome at any time to submit requests for classes or events they would like to see offered, or to submit proposals for events or classes they would like to organize or teach.
For specific information about Co-op policies, see our 2015-2016 Eastside Homeschool Co-op Registration Packet.
The best way to understand what Eastside Homeschool Co-op has to offer is to schedule a visit. We have a parent receptionist on site who can provide tours, answer questions, and review paperwork with you. Prospective families are welcome to visit anytime classes are in session. To help us provide the best possible visit, we appreciate advance notice. If you are interested in scheduling a visit, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
During Co-op hours, we have use of the center’s eight classrooms– which include an art studio and a computer lab — as well as the center’s large common room. The center also has a lawn and playground that Co-op families can use when the weather permits.
Families can sign up for as many or as few classes as they wish to. Some families only enroll for one class each week and others attend multiple classes on both days. Class enrollment is generally limited to about 15 students, and parents are usually welcome to sit in on classes if they wish to or if their children need them there for support.
When not in class, family members can usually be found in the Family Room, socializing, working on projects, or just hanging out. EH Co-op parents are required to remain on-site while their children are in class, but have the option of signing out their child(ren) to another parent if they need to leave for a portion of the day.
Class tuition is set by the Instructor, usually ranging between $36 and $60 per 6-week session. The class tuition is listed under the class description on our 2015-2016 printable class schedule or on our Class List page.
There is a yearly $75.00 Membership Fee per family. Membership fees must be paid before children can be enrolled in Eastside Homeschool Co-op’s programs (classes, clubs, activities, and educational websites). Membership fees pay for the rental and maintenance of the facility that houses EH Co-op as well as supplies needed to maintain classes and social activities.
