Support Group Name: Tapestry of West Columbus

Group Website: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1010229695665180/

Group Size: 1
5-20 families

Group Description: Our co-op consists of two parts: Tapestry Charter and Tapestry Classic.

Tapestry Charter involves optional paid classes with hired teachers for Spanish, High School and Jr. High Science (Apologia), Elementary Science, IEW, other creative electives e.g. sports, music, guitar, drama etc.

Our Tapestry Classic involves history and literature using Tapestry of Grace, a classical Christian curriculum. Tapestry has divided their curriculum into age groups (K-12) called stages, where all students study essentially the same period in history, but at different reading and comprehension levels. Art, church history, worldview (HS), & literature are all taught alongside the corresponding historical segment from a biblical worldview. The curriculum divides the study of history into four eras, called year-plans, which take your entire family through the whole of recorded history in a 4-year cycle. This program is highly customizable and provides additional reading, projects, group activities, etc.

Tapestry Classic meets once a week for two hours. Classes are provided from K-12 with each family having at least one participating twelve years old.

Counties Served: Franklin, Madison, and other counties.
