The journey this year has been FABULOUS!! We have enjoyed meeting new friends and sharing our talents with each other.
Our Secondary students (ages 12-18) learned the art of Debate. The students successfully competed in Region X NCFCA tournaments. Our co-op group hosted our first local tournament which was a huge success thanks to our families and the support from the local community! Our secondary students also discussed great works of literature and enjoyed a 6 weeks glass class at Warner Glass. What a great experience. Many science experiments were hypothesized and successfully analyzed.
Our Elementary kids (ages 4-11) learned over 24 history facts, 161 events and people in a chronological historical timeline, math facts, Latin conjugations, English grammar facts and over 100 locations and geographical features of Europe, Asia and select parts of the world. They also learned 24 science facts and experienced biomes, planets, laws of motion and thermodynamics! Upper Elementary kids (ages 9-11) wrote over 20 Medieval history based papers, experienced intense grammar study of the English language and worked on their mental math skills improving their overall math knowledge.
Our students at both levels participated in our annual Art Expo hosted by Traditions of Hanover in Bethlehem, PA. The students were able to showcase their growth of their artistic ability to family, friends and the residents of Traditions.
What a WONFDERFUL year! And, we can not forget friendship, fun and SOCIALIZATION was enjoyed by all.
We had superb parents willing to share their time, talents and passions with the students. It is the willingness and dedication of our parents that make our co-op so successful.
We are excited to continue our journey through the summer and into the Fall.
We are currently accepting new families on our wait list. Visitations to our co-op are by request only.
Luv 2 Homeschool Support is excited to announce the maiden voyage of an academic and social group for secondary students. Students and parents have access to other local families in which to connect for academic support or social gatherings. This is a family driven group with gatherings suggested and implemented by its members. This is a private group which requires requests or by invitation to join. Secondary is defined as students age 12 years old to 18 years old or approximately grades 7 – 12.
For more information email us at Luv2HS.email@example.com

An Elementary site is also offered. For more information send request to above email.
Beginning Wednesday, January 8th are will offer a weekly one hour writing class for 8-yr old children. This class will take place 10a – 11a and use the acclaimed Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW) technique. This course runs for 12-weeks ending April 9th. Students will learn how to create an key word outline, create a well written paragraph as well as understand the early stages of research based writing.
Eight year olds have the dexterity, speed and knowledge of words to be successful in this course. Class size is limited to ensure full comprehension of the material and to offer one-on-one time for understanding. Class size is limited to eight (8) students. Young 9 year olds may also enroll in the class based on space.
A “read only” registration form can be found under “registration forms.” To obtain a printable copy send an e-mail request to Luv2HS.firstname.lastname@example.org. Full payment is required to hold your child(ren)’s spot.
Please note: Because this class is being offered during our other co-op class time, families with additional sibling, both younger and older, must be in the nursery room. (Parents are responsible for monitoring their children.)

Co-ops are like families. Each is different and unique. To truly get the favor of any co-op or group, one must emerge themselves into the co-op to understand how it operates. More importantly to determine whether or not it will work for their individual family and situation.
We have scheduled visitation days the second and fifth weeks of each of our 6-wk sessions. Upcoming visitation days include 12/4; 1/15; 2/5; 3/12; and 4/2. For children 8-years-old and under their day ends at 1:30p. Older kids have a more intense schedule and remain in classes until 3:30p. All visits must be pre-approved by our Coordinating Team. Contact us via email: Luv2HS.email@example.com to schedule your future visit.
Whether for the current year or next year, a visit to our co-op will help one to better understand our purpose and goals as an educational co-op. We are here to support homeschooling families, not replace them.
We look forward to meeting you and your family!
We are so excited to begin our learning adventure this Fall. We still have limited openings in both the elementary and secondary levels. We offer a unique learning environment in which the students are engaged both intellectually and socially. Elementary students are immersed in hands-on, active activities. The secondary students can earn speech and volunteer credit during each weekly co-op meeting time. The debate topic for the 2013-2014 season has been announced as follows…Resolved: That federal election law should be significantly reformed in the United States. Debate is a great opportunity for students to learn how to argue their point while respectfully listening to someone with a different view-point. Our co-op courses can be viewed under “course descriptions.” Contact us with any questions. This is going to be an exciting Fall!
We are so excited to be located on Roble Rd very near the Lehigh Valley Airport. We are able to service homeschoolers in and around the Lehigh Valley with convenience for all. Our facility is easily accessible from US 22, Rt 33 and I-78. Our co-op not only offers strong academic enrichment courses, we also strive to create a connected homeschool community among our members. There are many opportunities throughout the day for the kids and parents alike to socialize and connect with the participating families. We also have a winter Science Fair, spring Art Expo and several debate invitationals in the making. We are so excited to be sharing our homeschool journey together with you!
Do you need to do more at home? That depends…Our chronological timeline and historical facts are based on Peace Hill Press Story of the World series. This four volume set by Susan Wise Bauer is a great addition to anyone’s book shelf, especially those who classify themselves as classically based homeschoolers. This series helps the children to connect the dots of history and make connections between the timeline and an event’s historical significance and relevance. While not required for purchase to participate in the co-op, it can help students and parents alike create the “big picture” of history. Many libraries have some or all of these books available for loan. Some may offer the unabridged audio version of the series. If your local library does not offer these books, consider requesting they purchase it. While the hardcopy print version is not too pricy, the audio version can be! However, when you are a busy, on-the-go homeschool family, having the audio can be beneficial for multiple reasons.
Let’s experience history!
We are centrally located from all points of the Lehigh Valley. Our co-op meets weekly on Wednesdays by the airport. We offer classically based curriculum to enhance your individual homeschool journey. We will meet 28 times from September through May with scheduled breaks for vacations, holidays and refocus.
