Rising Roots seeks to create a safe, supportive, and open space for homeschool families of all backgrounds. We are committed to the principles of inclusion while honoring the great need for support through the singular experience of homeschooling our children.
Rising Roots is expressly open to and welcoming of individuals regardless of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, marital status, citizenship, national origin or genetic information.
In this Co-Op we believe that Black Lives Matter and that LGBTQ+ rights are human rights. We pledge to see and honor each other’s differences while taking the time to learn the world outside of our own, realizing that the experiences of others are valid and real.
Rising Roots was created in 2021 by Jenn Terfinko-Barnett and Chelsea Grimmett when we saw the need for a secular homeschool co-op in the Lehigh Valley. We aim to be a safe place for religious and non-religious families alike.
Acknowledgement of the statement of philosophy is required for membership to the Rising Roots Secular Homeschool Cooperative. All members of the Board are required to affirm, in writing, their personal agreement with the Statement of Philosophy. Members of the Educational Team shall not teach in opposition to the Statement of Philosophy.
