SUPPORT GROUPS, CO-OPS, CLASSES, TUTORS
Find social groups, supplemental classes, co-ops, and tutors to help you on your homeschool journey.
NNHS does not support or endorse any group, class, or tutor, but rather provides a list of available resources that may help you as an additional resource.
If you don't see a group in your area, consider starting one! It can be simple, like meeting at a park every week (we recommend starting off by meeting at the same time, place, and day each week to get the group going); or it can be more complex, like a co-op offering classes. Please email your group information or class/tutoring info to email@example.com

NNHS publishes this list as a convenience and resource for our homeschool community. These are not official NNHS sanctioned events, they are opportunities for homeschool moms to connect with other homeschool moms and kids to play together. We encourage you to take safety precautions of wearing masks and playing games that will keep the kids 6 feet apart from one another. Please see a list of ideas for play apart together games after the list of park days.

Biggest Little Co-op in Northern Nevada - North Valleys
Battle Born Homeschool Co-op is Accepting Families for the 2021-2022 School Year
We are a Christian homeschool co-op that meets one day a week (Tuesdays) in North Carson City, Nevada for a total of 30 weeks per year. Each class we offer is taught from a Christian perspective in either a neo-classical or traditional classical pedagogical style. We are dedicated to fostering our children’s relationships with Jesus, and aim to raise excellent communicators and strong disciples of Christ.
This year we will have classes for K-9th grades. Currently our classes include memory work (for younger students), art, science, presentations, logic, literature, composition, history, Latin, and Christian studies.
Our small and close knit co-op offers accountability, support, and structure, while allowing the flexibility for families to do what best fits their child. While there is no fee to join, a commitment of time and teaching or serving is required.
For more information, please contact Christina Morway at email@example.com.
