Lake County House, or LHouse, is a non-sectarian homeschool support group in Lake County, Illinois. LHouse currently offers a monthly parent support group, a monthly activity group, a weekly park group, a weekly academic co-op, and periodic field trip opportunities. Membership in LHouse includes membership in Illinois H.O.U.S.E.
Annual dues are $10 per family, regardless of the number of children in your household. This amount covers membership fees to Illinois H.O.U.S.E. and a small donation to the facility where we hold many of our events. Some of our activities, such as parents' breakfast and field trips are pay as you go.
The LHouse Co-Op is truly cooperative. We offer one class per academic year and divide the work among the parents of the children who choose to participate. Each parent selects a handful of weeks during which they will be responsible for the subject planned. They plan the lesson, provide materials, and conduct the class for those weeks. There is no additional cost to participate in co-op.
