Homeschooling in California:

Submit a Local Resource

State Organizations and Local Homeschool Groups

TheHomeSchoolMom's local resource listings are sponsored by Time4Learning, where you can find resources, support groups, test prep info, and more.

Homeschooling is regulated at the state level, so connecting with local homeschoolers is an important step to start homeschooling in California. State homeschool organizations and local homeschool groups are not just a good place to learn the specifics of legally homeschooling in California—they can also help you to get connected with the local homeschooling community. Many homeschool groups offer co-ops, classes, sports and arts opportunities, and social get-togethers.
