Who We Are
The North Pittsburgh Homeschool Enrichment Program (NPHEP)
is a cooperative of homeschooling families whose mission is to enrich our children
by providing small classes to explore interesting subjects and to develop friendships
in a fun group environment. All families are expected to contribute in some way.
Registration is open to all families with at least one child homeschooling
under the PA homeschool law or registered in a PA cyber school.
We meet north of Pittsburgh at North Park Baptist Church, 1600 Sample Road, Allison Park, Pa 15101
Many classes have a Christian orientation but non-Christians are welcome.
for grades K-8 is called Enrichment Day. Enrichment Day meets Fridays from
9 am-2 pm for two 12-week semesters, September thru December and February thru
May. Children can be enrolled in only one class a week or up to 5 classes.
Nearly all the classes are taught by parents in the coop. Parents are required
to stay on the premises while their children are there and while there, parents
contribute to the coop by acting as instructors, assistants, nursery workers,
party coordinators, fund raising assistants and setup and clean up crews. A
nursery is offered for children birth�K.
