AHC's focus on community includes our fee structure. Our hope is that our low cost, simple fee structure makes it possible for all homeschool families to join us for classes if they wish.
Please note that our fees are kept low because parent volunteers do all the work within our coop, including the teaching of classes. Each family is expected to have at least one adult attend classes and assist with classes either as a teacher, a class assistant or with set-up and cleanup responsibilities. For more details, contact our Registration Coordinator.
Membership dues are $20 per year per family, due Aug 1 or whenever your join AHC.
Registration Fees are due at the time of class registration. The fees listed below cover the full term (10 weeks) for one, two or three classes, and is the same for both locations. This fee structure is designed to encourage participation while covering our costs.
- First child in the family – $60
- Second and third child in the family – $45
- Each additional child – $15
- Toddlers not enrolled in classes – $30
- Non-participation Fee – $75
***Children younger than one year of age may be registered and left for care in the toddler room, or may remain with their parent. Children one year or older are generally registered. ***
Families, in which adults are not able to participate in a volunteer capacity in our Wednesday class program, please discuss your situation with our Registration Coordinators. In most cases, we are able to work with you so your child can be part of our program. We ask non-participating families to make an additional financial contribution (the $75 non-participation fee), and to arrange for an adult onsite to be responsible for their child. AHC as an organization can never take responsibility for your child while you are off site. Anyone doing non-participation must speak with the Class Coordinator & Location Coordinator at the location you will attend classes.
Materials fees may apply to some classes with larger than usual materials costs. These fees are used to reimburse teachers for costs of materials for their classes. You can find materials fees on the class descriptions at the time of registration.
Classes are $10 each, with the exception of Toddler Class/Room, which is free. Some classes may have an additional materials fee. If so, these fees are included in that classes specific cost, and will be listed in the classes description.
For example, if you are taking an art class with an additional $5 materials fee, that class will be listed as $10 with a $5 supply cost for a total of $15.
