Depending on where you are in your homeschooling journey, you may be very familiar with homeschool co-ops, or, like me, waited 20 years before trying one! Here, I review homeschool co-ops and classes offered in the Fort Wayne and surrounding areas.
I did a blog post several years ago on Donna and Ray Reish’s Character Ink Classes. You can read that here.
Ray and Donna have a tremendous wealth of homeschooling experience and they just love their students! They have been a tried and trusted resource for many homeschooling families – including mine – for many years. Donna is known as the “Language Lady” because she has literally written thousands of pages of writing material! She loves what she does!
Now, they offer even more options! Half – Day Homeschooling and Online Tutoring and Classes are now on the menu! Just click on the photo below to get started on a path that works just right for you and your family!
Doorposts Homeschool Co-op of Northeast Indiana
Based on how fast I see these classes fill up, I can tell this is a popular co-op choice!
Their mission statement reads:
“DoorPosts Homeschool Co-op was created to provide a faith-based environment where homeschool families could gather together in fellowship, friendship, and learning.”
Classes are located in the Kendallville and Auburn Area. Click HERE for their website.
Kroeker Homeschool Academy
This is taken from a blog post I wrote :
“The first time I came across Kroeker Academy was when I was reading their course descriptions in a homeschool newsletter and was thinking, “Wow, how do they teach ALL that in one class?!” So often times I wanted my kids to take classes they were offering, but due to schedule conflicts, it never happened. I often felt we missed out on some great learning! I have, however, had many friends whose kids have taken their classes, and they have confirmed what I instinctively knew – there is a whole lot of learning going on in those classes!” You can read the rest of the post here.

Life Adventures HomeSchool
Since most of my kids have graduated, they have not taken any classes here, but I do know Jennifer MacDonald who directs Life Adventures. Click HERE for their website:
