ABOUT CHoSEN CO-OP
We provide a Christian program and desire to show the love of Christ to every person who walks through our doors. We have HIGH standards and guidelines for all participating in CHoSEN, which ensures your child the ability to learn in a safe and Christ-like manner.
"I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said." - 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (NLT)
We offer an all-inclusive Kindergarten (students must be five years old by September 1) and an all-inclusive First Grade class which cover a wide array of academic topics. All six year olds must be registered in the First Grade class and may not register for any second grade classes without prior permission from the Academic Director. This includes students who will be turning seven years old midway through the semester. We also have a variety of elective and core classes for children in grades 2-12. Preschool classes are not available. Our program is a non-profit organization that is run by the sole support of our teachers and parents.

Period 4: 11:25 am - 12:15 pm
OUR SICK POLICY:
There are many yucky illnesses out there now and we want to do our best to keep our students healthy. We ask that if your family has been exposed to the Flu, Rotavirus, Strep Throat, H1N1 Virus, etc. to NOT bring your child to class. It is unfair to expose the rest of the children and the staff to these illnesses. We will do our best to have the students wash their hands frequently as well. Please help us to keep our co-op healthy! Thank you!
OUR DRESS CODE:
Our co-op is growing more and more each semester. We are thrilled with our growth, in particular...our high school crowd. However, with so many students comes the responsibility of making sure that our co-op has a standard of dress code that encourages modesty and Godly thinking.
Remember, if a student does not dress appropriately, he or she will either be privately asked to change clothes or be sent home. We never want to embarrass anyone. We understand that this may be a bit strict and that you may even have to go buy a few new things, but this is only one day a week for 11 weeks.
Please note - In the past, we have had students who would test the limits. If you are questioning whether an outfit meets the standards, please err on the side of conservative. It is not fun for us to confront these issues with students and parents. If a student repeatedly tests our policy every week, we will ask him/her to leave our co-op.
Forgive us for being so blunt in our descriptions below, but it has become necessary.
No shortie shorts! Again...NO SHORTIE SHORTS! Only Bermudas, Capris or mid-thigh shorts. Any shorts that are shorter than the middle of the thigh of that particular child will be too short. Please note: some teen girls have very long legs and with that comes very long thighs. A pair of shorts that might fit one girl appropriately may not fit little Miss Long Legs appropriately. Moms, please help us with this!
No tank tops, spaghetti straps or any shoulder-less shirts. All shirts must cover the shoulders! Capped sleeves are fine. If you do have a sleeveless shirt, you must wear a sweater or cover-up at all times.
No tummies or back ends showing! In other words, your shirt and your pants must meet in the middle...no too highs (for the tops) and too lows (for the bottoms).
No short skirts! All skirts or dresses need to be no shorter than knee length. We realize that we are allowing Bermudas to be a tad shorter, but Bermudas do not flair out like skirts. Please note that short skirts over leggings or pants are still NOT acceptable.
No low-cut shirts that show low-cut things.
No pants hanging low with underwear hanging out
No offensive t-shirts
No exposing armpits or bellies, even in athletic classes
OUR ATHLETIC DRESS CODE:
We understand that children like to wear lighter clothing while doing athletics. However, they still need to be appropriate. If a student does not dress accordingly, he/she will be asked to change and/or sit out of class. The following applies to girls and boys of all ages:
No skin-tight exercise biker shorts, unless covered by other shorts that are of appropriate length.
No tank tops
No shortie exercise shorts
No skin-tight shirts
Only t-shirts and mid-thigh gym shorts are allowed
No exposing armpits or bellies
*Girls-only dance classes do have exceptions
Again, it is the goal of CHoSEN Co-op to provide a happy, safe, and God-focused learning environment for our students. We hope to offer a place of grace and mercy, balanced with high standards. Please help us with this so we do not have to go to you! Thank you!
OUR POLICY ON SHADOWING:
Only registered students of CHoSEN Co-op are permitted to attend classes. We know that sometimes parents may find themselves responsible for a friend's or relative's child during co-op time. As much as we would absolutely love to have them shadow along with your child, it is our policy to not allow students who are not registered with co-op to shadow. We really wish we could allow for this and understand that your child may want to bring a friend at times, but it places extra burden on our teachers. Thank you very much for understanding!
GENERAL INFO: Please read the following as some things have changed.
Cost of Classes: $30.00 for 11 weeks, Fridays only, for each 55 minute class period. Kindergarten and First Grade are $150 for the full day and each has a full-time teacher's aide.
We encourage you to register your children for the full day, but this is not required for grades 2-12. (Kindergarten and First Grade are designed for all five class periods.) There are many events or happenings that occur throughout the day that we would not want your child to miss.
We accept CASH AND CHECKS (payable to Calvary Chapel). Tuition balance must be paid by the end of the first day. If additional payment options are needed due to financial hardship or if you have any questions regarding tuition, please contact by e-mail at email@example.com
We have a registration fee of $25 per family per semester.
Answers on class changes:
If scheduling changes, cancellations, or withdrawals are requested after on-line registration closes, all materials fees may be NON-REFUNDABLE. Any cancellations or changes (which we highly discourage) MUST BE MADE BY THE END OF THE FIRST DAY. Once teachers are paid, we CANNOT refund any money.
Please be here at least 10 minutes before your child's class is to begin. This gives you time to sign-in, ask questions, etc.
It is required that you escort and sign your child in to their classroom for their first period, and pick them up and sign them out from their last period classroom ON TIME. Leave a phone number where you can be reached. In compliance with Calvary Chapel policy, students are required to be within the CHoSEN Co-op setting or physically with the parent.
They are NOT allowed to roam the property unattended!! Thank you!
Please update your Family Profile annually. Look for the Family Profile link in the menu.
NEW RATES - Please Read VOLUNTEERING: You must sign-up to volunteer during online registration or you will be charged the non-volunteer opt-out fee. Remember, one day is from 8:10 am - 12:15 pm. We ask that you arrive a little early so we can get you settled in and that you stay a little extra so you can help with clean up. Please keep in mind we do not provide childcare, and children are not permitted to tag along. Thank you very much!
One child - 1 full day of volunteering or $35.00 opt-out fee
Two children - 2 days or $45.00 opt-out fee
Three or more children - 3 days or $55.00 opt-out fee
We are now offering an additional volunteer option: you may pay a lesser fee if you choose to work at least one of your volunteer days but not all. Those reduced rates are as follows:
Two children registered: 1 volunteer day + $30
Three children or more registered: 1 day + $40 OR 2 days + $25
We greatly encourage volunteering since our co-op can only function at its best when all parents, teachers, and staff are participating. However, we realize that this does not always work for everyone. If you do choose to volunteer and an occasion comes up when you need for someone to take your place, YOU will be expected to contact us to reschedule your time. Please notify us as soon as possible. If you do not fulfill your volunteer time in a rescheduled slot, you will be charged for the volunteer fee. Our Volunteer Coordinator will remind you of the days for which you signed up via email.
Volunteers will be used in one of the following ways: teacher's assistant, hallway monitor, bathroom monitor, desk duty, clean up, or any other various jobs. Remember, we LOVE and APPRECIATE our faithful volunteers. Thank you!
