Southeast Central Texas Homeschool

The Southeast Central Texas Homeschool co-op and support group serves the Southeast Central Texas area, including Fayette, Lee, Washington, Austin, Colorado, Lavaca, Gonzales, Caldwell, and Bastrop counties. We strive to fill a dual need for our area — that of secular homeschoolers as well as homeschoolers of gifted and twice-exceptional (gifted with a learning disability or behavioral disorder) kids. We aim to provide members with opportunities for meetups, classes, field trips, clubs, honor societies, and organized events.

Why I Started the Local Co-op

I launched SECTX Homeschool because of a desire to better suit the needs of my twice-exceptional son and a lack of secular co-ops and organizations in my surrounding area. In keeping with my original mission, I wanted to create something truly inclusive that was also a safe space for gifted and twice-exceptional kids.

What You Can Expect

Secular Gifted, LLC is sponsoring SECTX Homeschool’s administrative costs, hosting, networking, scheduling, and resource sharing services, with the intention of covering additional expenses in the future. There is no co-op fee since there currently are no costs for building rental, curriculum, etc. For now, each family will need to pay their own way for events, classes, field trips, and activities.

The co-op will be run in true co-op fashion, where there is one set meeting place, volunteers for each class or activity (mentoring, clean up, organizing, coordinating, etc.–preferably in an area of skill or expertise), plus at least 2 to 4 people for ages 4 and under. We will not focus on age or grade, but rather interest, since gifted and 2e kids are often asynchronous. You will ultimately be responsible for your own kid(s).
