River Farm Cooperative Home School Discussion


Join us after the 10 a.m. service to talk with the River Farm Cooperative HomeSchool staff.

THE RIVER FARM COOPERATIVE HOMESCHOOL PROFILE Based in Alexandria, Virginia, the River Farm Cooperative (RFC) is a parentowned homeschool cooperative offering a dynamic elementary program for children in grades K - 5. RFC’s nature-based program is based on the premise that both parents and children are integral parts of a school community of lifelong learners.

School Day. The RFC school day is 8:45am-3pm, Monday through Friday from September through May. Families may bring their children as early as 8:30am. Two full-time teachers are present at all times, and parent helpers join the staff at 12pm daily and until the last child is picked up at the end of the school day. RFC’s students are away on a field trip 1-2 days per month.

Enrollment. RFC’s student body is currently divided into two classrooms, each with its own full-time professional teacher: a Lower Class with children in grades k-2, and an Upper Class with children in grades 3-5. The maximum number of total RFC students is 24. Enrollment for the 2016-2017 school year is 22 students.

Non-Discrimination Policy. RFC was founded in 2014 with a mission to foster a life-long love of learning. In order to facilitate such a passion, the founders emphasized small class sizes, interpersonal, academic, and nature-based rubrics for learning and age appropriate strategies for community partnership, social justice, and respect for all. This focus on good citizenship extends to RFC’s admissions and hiring practices. RFC is strongly committed to providing equal employment opportunity for all employees, applicants for employment, and for all students and applicants for admission. All employment and employee or student applicant decisions at RFC—including those relating to hiring, promotion, transfers, benefits, compensation, placement and termination—will be made without regard to an individual’s race, color, religion, creed, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, marital status, veteran status, or any other status protected by applicable law. RFC believes this is the only acceptable way to operate.

For more information, please contact RFC’s Presidents – Mark and Lindsey Vick, at 703-489-9728 or 703-489-0754, respectively. Fairfax County Zoning Hearing, February 8th at 9:00 am.
