Beloved Community Co-op is a Christ-centered, diverse, equitable, and inclusive homeschool cooperative that offers a safe and connected community, a rich and robust education, and above all else, radical love to children of all ages and all families from all walks of life.

God called us to breathe life into Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s vision of “the beloved community,” a community in which people of every color and background come together in peace and harmony, in which differences are not ignored or downplayed but rather recognized and celebrated, in which the intrinsic value and dignity of every person as an image-bearer of God is revered.

Foundational to Beloved Community Co-op is the Agape love of Christ, which Dr. King described as: “means understanding, redeeming good will for all men…Agape does not begin by discriminating between worthy and unworthy people, or any qualities people possess.  It begins by loving others for their sakes.  It is an entirely ‘neighbor-regarding concern for others,’ which discovers the neighbor in every man it meets.”  -- Dr. MLK, Jr. 

It is an actionable love in which not only open hearts but also helping hands are extended to answer the prompting from Micah 6:8 to “Do Justice, and Love Mercy, and Walk Humbly” with the Lord.  After all, faith without actions and deeds is no faith at all.  The Beloved Community Co-op seeks to reflect God’s kingdom as a vibrant, rich, multi-colored tapestry.  It is a place to love and be loved. 

Mission, Vision, & Values

Mission Statement

Beloved Community Co-op is a Christ-centered, diverse, equitable, and inclusive homeschool cooperative that offers a safe and connected community, a rich and robust education, and above all else, radical love to children of all ages and all families from all walks of life.


Beloved Community Co-op partners with parents to educate and empower children to love and serve God in heart, mind, and soul and ALL His people (Matt 22:37-40). We seek to develop humble leaders who are strong in Christ-like character, rooted in the confidence of His love and sacrifice, and equipped with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to live out their God-designed purpose, in any place and space to which He calls.

We Value:

  • Fervent Faith – Foremost, we are rooted in the unifying, unconditional agape love of Christ.

  • Rich Diversity – We are better for the leadership, contributions, and ideas from people of all backgrounds.  

  • Servant Leadership – We are difference-makers who live out our faith in action and deed, placing the interests of others above self.

  • Humble Integrity – We are committed to speaking truth and seeking forgiveness when we fall short.

  • Courageous Justice – We are advocates who pursue justice with boldness, honesty, and humility.

  • Loving Compassion – We are empathetic to the experiences of others and extend grace and mercy whenever possible.

Accordingly, Beloved Community Co-op maintains the following policies:


Beloved Community Co-op is committed to anti-racist principles; we are a community of learners working together to create spaces that nurture children of diverse ethnic and racial backgrounds. Because the needs and aspirations of Black, Brown, Hispanic, Latino, Asian and Indigenous children and families are so often de-centered, Beloved Community Co-op centers them. We utilize anti-racist curriculum and pedagogy whenever possible. We adhere to community-wide anti-racist practices that humbly listen to, value, and advance the hope and needs of minority and marginalized students, families, and teachers. We are committed to doing the work required to end racism: listening, learning, repairing, taking risks, disrupting, and dismantling all the ways racism shows up in our lives and communities.


Beloved Community Co-op will not discriminate in its admission of families based upon race, color, religion, creed, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, or physical or mental disability.


Beloved Community Co-op is committed to maintaining an environment that prohibits all forms of harassment by or toward adults or children based on race, color, religion, creed, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, physical or mental disability or other legally protected characteristics. Harassment is defined as unwanted physical contact or sexual advances; use of epithets, inappropriate jokes, comments or innuendos; obscene or harassing telephone calls, emails, letters, other forms of communication; and any other conduct which interferes with an individual’s performance or creates a hostile environment.

Zero Tolerance

Beloved Community Co-op has zero-tolerance for any type of abuse or misconduct including but not limited to sexual, emotional, spiritual, and physical. Every adult within the co-op is required to uphold the safety and protection of all youth.

Are parents expected to teach?

As a homeschool cooperative, Beloved Community Co-op requires all parents to serve in three ways:

  1. Lead teach or assist with teaching (all families share the responsibilities for teaching & assisting)
  2. Volunteer on co-op days in supporting roles such as set-up, clean-up, and front desk duty
  3. Serve on at least one co-op committee per school year.

Beloved Parents working together in this manner enables us to offer high-quality, affordable learning opportunities, along with exciting and fun activities such as Chapel, Teen Hangouts, Mom Connects, family camping weekends, guest speakers, numerous field trips, and Open Mic! RECITE!TM nights, and much more!

Parents who require an exception due to special or unique circumstances are encouraged to speak to the co-op directors regarding special arrangements.

What is the application and enrollment process for new families?

Prospective Families are invited to attend one of our spring open house days to learn more about the co-op community. Once families have decided that Beloved Community Co-op is a good fit for their families, they are invited to complete a family application and schedule an interview with two community leaders (executive directors and/or board members). Following the interview, families will be notified of the board's decision regarding applications. 

Accepted families are invited to secure their spot by submitting a family deposit, which will be applied toward the following academic year tution & fees.
