Cooperative Studies Division

Fairfield Christian Academy is known for individualizing instruction to meet the needs of every student.  The Cooperative Studies Division is one unique way that we address this issue and has been established to provide quality educational options for parents and students who may want to provide a supervised blend of educational opportunities for their sons or daughters.  This program permits a child to accomplish their coursework in any given year by studying some subjects at home (in a home-school setting) while taking other coursework on campus (in a traditional day-school setting).
 
Below is more specific information about the options available for each grade.
 
Cooperative Studies for students in 4th - 6th grade

Fairfield Christian Academy welcomes your student to enroll in Cooperative Studies III or IV and take three or four classes at the Academy while you teach the rest of the classes at home.  You may choose any three (or four) classes as long as they are adjacent in the schedule.  If needed, you may also add a “free” period of a study hall OR a lunch/recess period in order to make your schedule work.
 
Students in this program are eligible for all extra-curricular activities as well as academic support from our cooperative studies director.  Parents are expected to meet monthly with the director and to submit quarterly grades for the at-home classes which will appear on the grade card.
 
Students in grades K-3 are very rarely accepted into the Cooperative Studies program and only with the permission of the Superintendent for extenuating circumstances.
 
Cooperative Studies for students in 7th grade and above

Fairfield Christian Academy welcomes your student to enroll in Cooperative Studies I, II, III or IV and take between one and four classes at the Academy.
 
Students electing to take one or two classes are enrolled in Cooperatives Studies I or II.  These students are not pursuing a diploma from Fairfield Christian Academy but are supplementing their home schooling with classes at the Academy.  Students taking one or two classes must choose classes that are adjacent in the schedule.  To help accommodate students, a “free period” of lunch or study hall may be added to the schedule.
 
Students who choose to take three or four classes are enrolled in Cooperative Studies III or IV.  These students may choose any three (or four) classes as long as they are adjacent in the schedule.  If needed, you may also add a “free” period of a study hall OR a lunch period in order to make your schedule work.  Students in this program are eligible for all extra-curricular activities as well as academic support from our cooperative studies director.  Parents are expected to meet monthly with the director and to submit quarterly grades for the at-home classes which will appear on the grade card.
