We are Co-Op, where we celebrate the arts, humanity, & social justice

While we celebrate and educate our students in the arts and humanities, we also prepare them for success in both college and career. Our faculty and staff are remarkably committed to inspiring, supporting and challenging our students during their four years in our investigative laboratory of self-discovery, social justice, and problem solving. Every adult is invested in ensuring our students graduate with the skills and stamina to be successful - whether they choose to pursue an artistic career, academic path or any other possibility


How to Know Co-Op is Uniquely Right for You:

○ You love being unique and learn in an environment where intellectualism, uniqueness and creativity are celebrated and encouraged.

○ You would rather be rigorously painting, dancing, singing, or writing than playing a sport.

○ You are interested in finding solutions to the ever changing complex issues of your community and engaging in student to student discourse.

What our students are saying...

”I gained a lot of confidence as an artist at Co-Op. My AP classes and honors English classes at Co-Op prepared me so well academically and Co-Op’s diversity prepared me socially.“
