There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. We know you'll find out why Koinonia is West Michigan's premier place for kids to learn!

Koinonia is a Homeschool Support Group that has been active in the community since the early 1990’s. Back then we had just a handful of moms & kids doing group studies, but today we have expanded into a non-profit association providing academic and enrichment classes to over 200 families under the leadership of an administrative team with the direction of a Board of Directors. 

Koinonia is a Christian organization, the purpose of which is to assist parents in their decision to home educate their children. We try and achieve this by encouraging supportive relationships between home schooling parents, helping children to build friendships with other home schooled children and providing academic classes for elementary through high school age students. Classes are administered by qualified tutors from a Christian world-view.

Koinonia is also actively involved in your child’s education through published notices of field trips, home school events, and other opportunities that a larger group can provide.

All classes take place on Mondays, with some advanced classes also held on Thursdays, from September to mid-May at West Cannon Baptist Church in Belmont. While not part of the West Cannon Baptist organization, they make part of their facility available to us for the entire day to conduct classes. On scheduled days, we also serve a hot lunch for a nominal fee.

What is Koinonia?

Koinonia (Koy-no-nee'-ah) is a Greek word which means "fellowship” or “brotherly love." It carries with it the meaning of a committed, trustworthy, and dependable relationship. Such a relationship can be experienced through participation, sharing, giving, and contributing. We hope to achieve a real sense of Koinonia among our members. We encourage you to explore our group and become as involved as you are able. It is by this involvement that you will bond with other home educating families and experience the true sense of Koinonia.
