Mission

A little bit about us

We are a Christian organization with teachers who teach from a biblical perspective.

Brazos Valley Co-op meets each Friday for 28 weeks, September through April, in Waco, Texas. Take one class or a full day; it’s up to you! We offer an ever changing array of exceptional classes to enrich your homeschooling journey for students Pre-K through 12th grade.

Payment Policy Update

As we all learn to navigate this new environment in our world, we are planning, as best we can, how to protect our families financially in regard to classes at BVC. We have set a new temporary payment policy that will be in effect until this crisis is past.

  • Half of the BVC registration fee will be refunded if we are unable to meet in the fall. We cannot guarantee return of the entire fee because of large fixed expenses that will require payment such as three website companies, rent, etc.
  • Class deposits (April tuition) will be refunded if we are unable to meet in the fall or spring. Teachers will keep the supply fee because it is used during the summer months to prepare for classes.
  • We are encouraging our families to consider paying monthly next school year in the event we must cancel. You will be allowed to pay by semester or year beginning in September, but that will not be refunded in the event we cancel. If paying by month next school year, you will simply stop paying on the months we cannot meet. An exception to this would be if teachers continue managing classes for older students who need to continue on for class credit.

None of us know what the future holds, but we hope this gives you all some sense of peace when registering for classes. Please continue to pray for us as we make necessary adjustments to policies in preparation for next school year. We are believing in faith that we will be meeting together in September!

  • 4th-7th: TechnoWhiz: Essential Tech Skills

Cheer - New for 2020-2021

Please join us for a new cheerleading program with an emphasis on an annual state/national competition, all within a Christian leadership and teamwork environment for older girls! Current 4th-10th graders are invited to demonstrate skills in stunts, dance, tumbling, jumps, and motions during a try-out on Friday, March 27 at 3:30. The selected team members will practice weekly at BVC during the 2020-2021 school year.

In addition to a competition performance, the girls will cheer at select Texas Wind athletic events. Contact Brooke Sanders for more information.

Our Co-op

Facility

The Brazos Valley Co-op began in 1994 when several moms wanted to find a way to enhance their home education programs. Our co-op has always been God-directed and has grown and changed over the years as He has led. Because of the growth in numbers of families involved, we were led in 2006 to seek a place where we could expand the number and variety of classes we can offer.

We wish to thank the staff and congregation of Fellowship Bible Church in Waco for graciously opening their building to our co-op for the school year.

We Exist for You!

Brazos Valley Co-op exists to provide quality classes for homeschooled students that will enrich their overall educational experience. Our co-op is not designed to take the place of parents educating their children at home but to provide valuable opportunities to homeschooled students. We are a co-op, not a school nor a business. Parents are ultimately responsible for their children’s education. Our co-op depends on the cooperation and participation of parents, students, and teachers.

Amazing Classes

BVC has even more to offer than the most diverse schedule of valuable homeschool courses available in the Greater Waco area. Your students will also love participating in lunch, Fun Fridays, class trips, high school fellowship opportunities (Teen Crunch), fun and engaging classes, group science projects and dissections, a little independence, a fun break from home, and cherished friendships fostered with sweet like-minded believers!

Computer Classes for All Ages

Our WeCompute program allows us to offer computer classes for every age level.
