Shepherd of the Hills Homeschool Co-op

A Christian homeschool co-op in Rathdrum, Idaho serving Kootenai County and beyond!

Our co-op meets weekly during the academic year for chapel, student presentations, a story, and free play.  We also conduct field trips and nature outings, as well as play time at local parks.


Standards and Expectations

We are a Lutheran co-op, but gladly welcome non-Lutheran Christians.  

We adhere to the following standards for participation:

  1. Faithful attendance at an orthodox Christian congregation
  2. At least one parent from each family will participate in the co-op
  3. Respectful and reverent conduct, speech, dress, attitude, etc. are to be exhibited by all participating children and adults
  4. Belief in the Biblical and historical Christian doctrines outlined in the Nicene Creed:

    I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of His Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made; who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate. He suffered and was buried. And the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures and ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father. And He will come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead, whose kingdom will have no end.

And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified, who spoke by the prophets. And I believe in one holy Christian and apostolic Church, I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins, and I look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.
