LHC REGISTRATION PROCEDURES


We are just around the corner from beginning our online registration! In order to register, families will need to Pre-Register by coming to co-op and bringing their paperwork and $40 Registration fee to either of our Pre-Registration dates.
(March 25th or April 8th - 8:30am to 1:30pm)

Please note:

  • We only accept new members during our annual Pre-registration window.
  • All families, both current and new, must have at least one student who is at least nine years of age by September 1st.
  • Openings for new membership will be awarded in the spring on a lottery basis if applications submitted by then exceed our membership capacity.


Before Pre-Registration begins, we ask that you take time to prayerfully read through LHC's Policy Handbook. This document will help you to gain an understanding of how our co-op operates to see if LHC is a good fit for you and your family.

Living Hope Co-op Policy Handbook

The Handbook is updated every year. (Current members- please be sure to review it.)

Background Checks

We are required to file a background check on members every two years. After we receive your pre-registration paperwork, an email will be sent to you if you are a new member or a current member that needs to refile. There will be a link in the email and directions on how to complete the check. The background check is done completely online after pre-registration.

  • Returning Members: If you are due to file a background check, you will need to do so before you can register for 2019-2020 classes. We will notify you via email if you need to file a background check for the 2019-2020 co-op year.
  • New Family Members: All New Family Members will be required to file a background check before registering for classes.


Website Preparation

  • Be sure that your password works and that you have changed it to one of your own choosing.
  • Verify that your family information is correct: each of your students are listed in the correct grade level for next fall, address/phone information is correct, and names are entered correctly.


Take Note of your Registration Dates

  • Write on your calendar the dates of your Registration window as highlighted on your "Registration Instructions" handout. (You received this during Pre-Registration at the board table.)
  • New Members: plan to attend our "Manditory New Family Orientation" at April 29th/ 9:45-11:15am.
  • Make a plan for your students' classes using the online class grid. Have back up choices made ahead of time in case classes close before or during your registration window.


3. Online Registration

You will be given a printed copy of this handout at Pre-Registration. We will highlight the dates of your online registration window. This handout is being attached here in case you find that an extra copy is needed.
Please read over these instructions so that you familiarize yourself with the online process before it begins.

Sesson 1 Class & Material Fee Payments

  • April 29th, May 6th & 13th - Payments for 2019-2020 1st Session & Material Fees: you will need to come to co-op to make your payments for 1st Semester Materials Fees, as well as the Session #1 Fees for all classes you are registered for. Session Fees and Material Fees are nonrefundable.

If payments are not made by May 13th, your family will automatically be dropped from the co-op.

  • All student class registrations and parent job registrations are subject to change if the Leadership Board deems it necessary.

Once our 2019-2020 Online Class Registrations closes, LHC Members may make class changes to their class schedules using our Add/Drop process in the fall. There will be no student Add/Drop changes over the summer.


Add/Drop Process

This process starts with dropping the current class in which your student is registered and then adding them to a class where a seat is available. This process begins in fall once co-op has started and continues to be available the whole co-op year. Please use this Add/Drop set of forms to complete this process. Full instructions are on the forms.

Add/Drop for 2019-2020 will begin at the Co-op Kick Off on September 9th

If you are wanting to get into a full class, you will want to sign your student up for the Online Waitlist.

Online Waitlist Procedure

  • The Online Waitlist is for classes with Student Max Reached status only.
  • Each waitlist will accommodate a list of 5 names.
  • If a class has prerequisites, priority will be given to students who meet the specified class prerequisites. If you are unsure of the prerequisites - please read the class description and information. If after reading the class information you are still unsure, please contact the teacher directly before placing your student on the list. (Examples of classes that may have prerequisites are science, writing and math classes.)
  • Once we begin co-op in September, seats that become available for those on the waitlist will be activated. When a closed class has an open spot, the first family name on the waitlist will be contacted. If the 1st family is no longer interested, the 2nd family will be contacted and then so on down the list.
  • If you change your mind and want to remove your name from the list, you can do so by clicking Unregister.
  • Only the names on the Online Waitlist will be contacted for admittance into a class that has a seat available in September after co-op begins. Teachers will not be keeping a separate wait list, so please do not ask them to put you on a waitlist for their class. Teachers may not overload their classes. All members must follow the Online Waitlist process to give every member equal opportunity to access seats in full classes.

If a spot opens up and you accept this seat, you will need to follow our Add/Drop policy to make the change. Specifics regarding our Add/Drop policy and procedures can be found in the section above on this website page.
