When can I register for Beacon Co-op and starting signing up for classes?Answer
Registration for Beacon Co-op begins April 2022 and ends August 19, 2022. Once you request to "Join" you will be contacted to schedule your interview with one of our board members. Once your membership is approved, you will receive a notification and you will then be able to log in and enroll in classes. When you sign in to the website, you enter the member-only side of the website. You can then enroll your child(ren) in classes. Class enrollment is separate from registering for the co-op.
How do I enroll my child for classes?Answer
Once on the membership side of the website you should see a button for "Class Registration." Click on the individual class on the matrix (you can also select list view), you will see the class description, the YEARLY tuition and supply fee. (The monthly fee is at the end of the class description). To register your child for a class, find your child's name under the register button, click the box by their name.
I am trying to enroll my child in a class and I don't see a register button.Answer
There are a few reasons why this can happen:
- Your family has not joined the co-op OR your membership has not been approved yet.
- There is a time conflict (you have already enrolled in a class during that time slot).
- Your child isn't in the grade that the class requires.
- Class Registration hasn't opened yet
