At RAHG, we strive to provide academic enrichment opportunities to encourage and inspire our students to follow their dreams. We seek to honor God in all that we do. RAHG requires parental involvement each co-op day, as we are volunteer-based and most of our classes are parent-taught. We offer a wide variety of classes each semester. Enrollment applications can be filled out twice per year. Fall enrollment is held until August each year and Spring enrollment is in December. We meet for approximately 12 weeks before Christmas and 12 weeks after Christmas. Our group takes field trips and park play dates as often as members desire to do so. We seek to support all homeschooling parents in their journey through our new mentorship program. email@example.com
