Who We Are

The ACES in ACES Homeschool Coop stands for Academic and Christian Education for Students. ACES Homeschool Coop was established in September 2007. It falls under the umbrella of the New Life Homeschool Family Ministry of New Life Church of Woodbury, Minnesota. The mission of the New Life Homeschool Family Ministry is to mentor and support families who homeschool their children in Woodbury and in the surrounding community, so that the Lord Jesus Christ is glorified in our families, in the church, and in our community.

New Life ACES Homeschool Coop meets 3 Thursdays each month during the school year, from 9:10 am to 12:30 pm, at Embrace Church St. Croix Campus in Lakeland, MN. We have Nursery for children under 3 and preschool for 3- and 4-year-olds. For Kindergarten we offer Language, Math, Art, Music, and P.E. For Gr. 1-12 we offer Art, Music, P.E., and Science. In addition, each grade has another elective that rotates each year.

Our teachers and class helpers are parent volunteers. Mothers are volunteer teachers and helpers through the morning at coop.  They also meet during the morning for encouragement, fellowship, and prayer. Fathers are invited to visit anytime and can also teach.

Besides the New Life ACES Homeschool Coop, we also have a homeschool graduation for seniors whose families are actively involved in at least one of the ministries of New Life Church.
