Our co-op is an academic group. We have a formally structured group of parents that meet once a week to form classes for our children. We serve nursery through highschool with classes ranging from arts, music, sciences, math, and history. Co-op currently has a waiting list, every semester we open enrollment to HELPS members when we have openings. Must be a HELPS member for 1 year before you are eligible to join.
Membership fees are used to maintain our website, cover insurance premiums, kindergarten and 8th grade graduation, high school graduation fees, and to help off set our small group activities. We also help offset some of the field trip fees when possible.
We will try to help all of our families stay a part of the group, even through financial difficulties. If you are having problems paying your membership fee please speak with one of the board members for arrangements.

The St. Louis Christian HomeSchool Blue Knights Basketball Program is excited to announce information for the 2017-2018 season. The Knights continue to experience unprecedented growth and success. The Blue Knights have grown to become one of the largest HomeSchool programs in the nation growing from 3 to 12 teams in the last 5 years. The Knights have been ranked in the Top 10 in the nation for HomeSchool teams, gone 31-20 against MSHSAA Public and Private schools, won several State Championships and have multiple former athletes playing college basketball. However as great as the growth and success on the court are it is the lifelong friendships and spiritual growth that are by far the best part of being a Knight.
