We are a private group of Christian families who homeschool, meeting together to encourage and strengthen homeschool families, form friendships, and build a sense of community. This group collectively provides an opportunity for our children to participate in educational activities with Christian peers in a group setting. As our activities do not exist to take the place of a full-time curriculum, each family is responsible for ensuring that their children follow an established curriculum according to the laws of their country and to the satisfaction of the Belgian authorities.
What We Believe
We believe in the triune God, composed of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus came to earth, died, was buried, and rose again. We believe in salvation through faith alone in God.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.
*If these are not your personal beliefs, please respect our faith and ensure your interactions with the children in teaching / assisting are not in contradiction to these beliefs.

Guidelines, Policies, and Procedures
Brussels Christian Homeschool Co-op (BCHC) meets every other week on Thursdays from 12:30-3:30. We have 2 semesters in a school year, which runs from September to March. Each semester contains 5 weeks of classes. We provide two class periods. Classes offered are based on what parents volunteer to teach each semester. Parents are involved in the classes either teaching or assisting. We end each day with a brief time to visit with each other. Before we leave the campus, we all participate in cleaning up the facilities.
Other activities that we provide throughout the year include, but are not limited to: field trips, Christmas and End-of-the-Year parties, Moms’ Night Out, and Presentation Day.
Note about language:
Because we provide a ministry to English-speaking homeschoolers, the homeschool parent and their child(ren) must be able to speak and understand English with no assistance in order to attend. This allows the parent/child to have the maximum benefit of attending co-op, and supports an environment beneficial to the group as a whole.
Families with children 0-4 years:
Your oldest child must be 5 years old by September 1st, and you must be actively homeschooling in order for your family to join BCHC. Younger siblings are provided child care at co-op and may participate in classes when provided.
