|Coming alongside families to raise up a generation of well-educated warriors for Christ
| What are we about?
Parent Teacher Co-op of Grand Rapids is an academic partnership between home schooling
parents and teachers. It is our goal to offer tutored classes with a high standard of moral
and academic excellence based on Biblical
principles. In order to achieve this goal, challenging
academic lessons along with Biblical applications in
light of the Christian heritage of the subject will be
presented to the student each week. The student
is required to complete work at home and keep an
organized notebook of the work completed. At the
PTC, we want every parent to have the blessing
of knowing their student's friends, and their friend's
parents. In order to facilitate this, we ask every family to donate time to run the co-op. The time is
spent setting up, tearing down, cleaning, or facilitating study hall. A fee to offset the cost of hiring
someone to fill the time slot will be charged if you are unable to fulfill your volunteer time.
