Coastal Homeschool Enrichment Academy

We are an enrichment cooperative for homeschooling families

in the Beaufort, Jasper, and surrounding areas that focuses on enriching the education of our children by building strong relationships and powerful experiences. Our co-op classes are not religiously based. We are an inclusive group welcoming all families. We hold classes one day a week for preschool through high school. We meet at Red Dam Baptist Church in Hardeeville on Fridays from 9-3!

We are looking forward to a wonderful school year in 2019 – 2020!
