Our Classes During COVID-19

COVID-19 update: Like nearly everything else in our lives this year, MCCP looks very different. We have moved  outside! While Snohomish County remains in Phase 2, we are offering a hybrid learning program that includes shortened, outdoor-only, in-person class time, combined with an extensive remote learning curriculum. Our tuition has also been temporarily lowered until our program is able to move back indoors and to our full class time schedule. Families may choose to do the remote portion of the class only, but tuition is the same price. 

Our school follows the same schedule as the Everett School District and is in session from September through mid-June.


Any questions about our classes can be directed to info@millcreekcoop.org.
