SE Columbia Academic Co-op

South East Academic Co-op

South East Columbia Academic Co-op is an inclusive learning cooperative that meets weekly. Our goal is to have something fun and educational for every age. We would love to have some new members and some new classes – we have plenty of room to expand!

Parent volunteers facilitate the classes in order the help keep the costs low. This is *not* a drop-off program.  Parents are required to stay on the property and assist in some way (not necessarily in their child’s class).

Meets on Tuesdays from 9-12 at Temple Baptist Church, 806 Univeral Drive, Columbia. Although we meet in a Baptist church, we do not have any specifically religious classes at this time. We ask that attendees show respect for all.

Mask policy: We have a few immune-compormised participants, so we request attendees to wear face coverings, but it’s not required or enforced.

Cost: $15/month per family. Plus, class supply fees–that’s it!
