There are several legal options for homeschooling legally in California.

These options are detailed completely on this page of my website Homeschool Realm. I HIGHLY recommend you start your journey into this world of CA homeschooling over there…and also peruse the rest of that website, Homeschool Realm, as I have filled it full of helpful articles and resources for newbie homeschoolers.

However, for a quick snapshot: From my experience, families in the Central Valley tend to homeschool in one of 2 ways:

  • By filing a private school affidavit (formerly called the R-4), declaring their home a private school (parents educating their own children don’t need to go through the background checks and fingerprinting hoops which regular private school teachers must jump through to educate at a private school. And private schools can legally have just 1 or 2 students.)
    If you’re just looking for the online form to file, here it is.
  • By signing up with a program: Either a local homeschool charter (ISP), private school satellite program (PSP) or virtual (online) school.

NOTE: Many people want to join a homeschool program because they worry less that they will get taken to court on truancy charges. They also like to have somebody tell then what the kids should be learning when. Many people join a program their first couple years to “get their feet wet” and then go off on their own when they feel more confident.

    Hello, i just got my son approved for Summit Academy Charter online school. I was wondering, am i going to need to fill out an affidavit as well? This is a virtual online school and it is available for Fresno. Just wondering if i had to do anything else before he gets started.

    • WebmamaTina
      July 23, 2016

      No, Summit is a charter, and as such your son is enrolled with a school and you will not need to declare yourself a private school (which is what the affidavit is for.)

    Do I still need to file a PSA for my Kindergartner? I will be homeschooling (for the first time) my 5 year old this new school year. I came across that Kindergarten is not even required, and school is mandatory when the child is 6 years of age.

    • WebmamaTina
      August 5, 2016

      You are correct, kindergarten is not mandatory and school is not legally required until the age of 6. If your child is not turning 6 by Sept 1, then you do not have to file a PSA this year. Check out this website for all the legal info:

        • WebmamaTina
          November 10, 2021

          Whoops! Somehow I missed this way back when you posted it! Obviously, it’s not relevant to you now, but I will answer it now for those that might read this in the future.

          No, there is no “Notice of Intent” in CA. Just file the affidavit for private school and you are set. If the local school district contacts you, which I would be surprised if they did…but if they did, then you can tell them your child is enrolled at a private school (and give them the name you chose for your private school if you like.)

    Hi i’m a little bit confused of what needs to be filed. I currently have a 5 year old enrolled in Kindergarten but I have decided to homeschool him instead. He turns 6 on June 19 will I need to file for a PSA since he does turn 6 before Sep. 1st and can I pull him out of school now or until I file for the PSA

    • WebmamaTina
      September 27, 2016

      You are in a different situation, I think, because he’s already enrolled. If he doesn’t actually turn 6 until June of 2017, then he did not actually need to be enrolled this year because kindergarten is not mandatory. But he WOULD have to be enrolled next year, and you would get to decide if you’d put him in K or 1st…as I understand it.

      But since he’s already enrolled…I’m not sure exactly how it works…I do know that you are always within your rights to unenroll your child and homeschool him. I am not positive, but I think since he is already enrolled in public school that will mean you will need to file a private school affidavit….technically because he’s not of legal school age yet, if he hadn’t been enrolled, you wouldn’t have had to…but from what I’ve heard other moms talk about, I believe because he’s been in the system now he does. But I’m not entirely certain on that so I would consult HSC or CHN to find out the full details. or

      September 27, 2016

      That’s a pretty big question…I suggest doing a lot of research on the web and reading some homeschool books on the subject. There’s a ton out there. Also listening to podcasts. Also find homeschool groups on Facebook to join and talk to people, especially if you can find some that are local to you. And definitely hook up in real life with local homeschoolers to get to know people doing this in your area and pick their brains. Good luck!

    my son is 6 years old & he is now a first grader but hes having such a difficult time at school. He has ADHD which also causes him to be highly distracted during school. At home, when I teach him sight words/alphabets/math etc. he surprises me by how much he knows. When I test him at home he passes with no problem but at school he will recieve the same test and he would fail it. I have come to the conclusion that homeschooling may be what is best for my child but I am so stressed out because I am so unsure if its the right thing to do for him or even where to begin the process in homeschooling him. We are CA residents (Stockton, CA to be exact). Please share any information you may have in where I should start in regards to get the ball rolling of getting my child homeschooled.

      Have you tried looking at K12 homeschooling ? it’s absolutely one of the best decisions I’ve ever done ????.. teachers are really nice .. representatives are beyond helpful will go above and beyond and there with you along the whole process.

        January 22, 2018

        I homeschooled my daughter last year (she was in 8th grade then) through k12 California Virtual Academy (CAVA) it was amazing! Everything 100% FREE! Tutoring, curriculum and even a desktop computer and color printer/scanner/fax that was mine to keep after (only the printer) each morning she logged into her live session with her teacher and 11 other classmates. That was usually around 30-60min then she was free to do her work independently. If she needed help beyond what I could provide she just needed to text or email her teacher for live help. There is also online instructional videos if your child is a visual learner. You work at your own pace. Say she wanted to do 5 math lessons in one day she could. All your weekely/moknthly lessons are online on your calendar so you can do as much or as little as you’d like. The best part is it’s free! I highly suggest using them as your “base” school for homeschooling. If you have any questions feel free to email me

        Let me give a warning to those reading these comments about K12…this is the exact opposite of what I usually hear about this company. I have been homeschooling since 2006, and deep in the community since even before that and have heard about K12, which is CAVA and Connections here in California. many many MANY times over the years from parents that have experienced it. Rarely have I heard glowing reports like this. Almost everyone gives it a very negative report, and talks about how it is very much school at home and extremely stressful in the rigor.

        If you want to read actual reviews of parents that have talked about their experiences, check this out:

        You’ll see a few glowing reviews, as is usually the case with anything, there’s always some people that like it…but notice how MANY and how bad most of the reviews are. And you may want to read through them all to see what their complaints are.

        I’ve even talked to former employees that had very little good to say about what the experience is like for families.

        So please do your research. There are much better options out there.

    Where do you get the curriculum for your child here in California when home schooling? In Alaska we had a place called Idea that we went to for curriculum and all our resources and testing.

    • WebmamaTina
      September 30, 2016

      Anywhere you want. If you use curriculum, you can find all sorts of things all over the internet. But you don’t have to use curriculum at all. Or pick and choose. Use a curriculum for just the subjects you want, and pull together stuff from the library and from Amazon and from other online stores and resources for other subjects. The possibilities are totally endless.

      If you are talking about things you don’t have to pay for, you can sign up for a homeschool charter that will pay for your curriculum or provide you with curriculum. It really just depends on what you want.

    I’m a little confused on when to file the PSA… He turned 6 in April this year. So I have been teaching him “kinder” things the past year and planning on filing the PSA for 1st grade. What I’ve read it says you file the affidavit between October 1st and the 15th. Is that when I sign him up and send in the affidavit or do I send it in at the beginning of the “school” year which is usually sometime in September? Thanks! Or is it October that the homeschool school year starts? This has confused me for the past year! Lol

    • WebmamaTina
      May 26, 2017

      You file the affidavit between Oct 1 and 15th. It’s all online, takes less than 5 minutes. Maybe a little longer your first time simply because you’ll be learning and reading more. After the first time you just duplicate and up the grade, unless something else changes, like you add a younger sibling or move. But it’s super easy. Don’t forget to print a copy for your files and I keep one in my purse to use as proof of homeschooling for places that give teacher discounts, like Barnes and Noble and GW School Supply.

      You start your school year whenever you want. That’s up to you. Most people start the school year in August or September and file the affidavit in October. It’s just a formality. You are in charge of your child’s education, so you do what you want. The government just needs to know that you’re doing it, and promise to cover the basics. How you do that, the details of those topics, and time span are all up to you. As it is for every private school out there.

  • Janet

    I am concerned about a mentally ill relative insisting that she will homeschool her children, despite the fact she can barely get out of bed (one ailment excuse after another). I/we are concerned that this is a recipe for disaster. What happens if she doesn’t do any paperwork or tells her school district the kids even live there? Children are 5-1/2 & 3 and have never been to preschool or any setting with other children. Does a school district know the kids are there and how to confirm they are getting an education by her? So troubling. Homeschooling is a great option (perfect for cousin in rural area w/dyslexic kid) but I don’t see it being great here. Thank you.

    • WebmamaTina
      August 15, 2017

      Legally in California, you DO have to fill out paperwork. You either have to be signed up with a homeschool charter or independent study program, or you have to be registered as a private school. As a private school, there is no oversight. In a charter, there is. (There’s a couple other options, but no one ever uses them…Like paying for a tutor…most people cannot afford that.)

      Many times concerned family members are seeing things very different than the reality. I don’t know you, I don’t know your relative, so I have NO idea what the reality is in this situation. So I am just sharing multiple perspectives. Many times family members that have no experience or misinformation on homeschooling truly think that it’s something impossible when it really isn’t. There are MANY MANY homeschoolers that are homeschooling quite well from their beds, with a variety of long term illnesses. Listen to this podcast: (scroll to the bottom of the page for the media player.)

      I know of some that have had stints of their own “bedschooling” because they were passionate about homeschooling but were physically unable to leave their beds. Their kids did just fine…thrived even. There is a very large, very active community here locally that can make it very doable. There are families that can help to set up play dates and pick up kids to get them out when a sick parent cannot…there are things that can be done to compensate within a home when a parent is ill. And we’ve all worked through days when we’ve been ill, and still have children to care for. Some for days or weeks on end. I do realize that’s not the same as someone with chronic illness, but you deal with what life gives you. It’s not ideal, but it can be done, if there is a loving supportive team of family and friends to help.

      That said, if this is truly a situation where this person is at a very real risk of harm to her children, that’s a different matter. Not everyone can or should homeschool. I have no idea what the situation is here. You are close to this situation and what I would encourage you to do is first, educate yourself on homeschooling in a big way. Check out and, which are the 2 main homeschool organizations in California to get all the scoop. Listen to our podcast, to learn the ins and outs, and day in the life of homeschoolers. Read my article “Why I Believe in Homeschooling”: to get an idea of why it can be such a big deal to some of us. And offer to help. Once you’ve educated yourself, you will be in a position to be able to better understand where your relative is coming from. Also join some local homeschooling groups and get to know local homeschoolers. Talk to them, ask questions, it might make you feel better. Get them connected with your family member, if she’s not already. Make sure she has a support group. And if she’s having mental health issues, make sure you do what you can to get her help with that as well. If the issue is depression, she absolutely can get help for that and still homeschool. Tons of us are able to homeschool through depression, myself included. You didn’t mention the issue, so I don’t know what it is, but that’s a common one that would leave a person often bed ridden.

      The key here is instead of jumping straight to judgement and deciding she can’t do it….educate yourself as much as you can on what can be done to help her. And maybe YOU can actually help her. Or if it doesn’t work out, maybe you can help her see that too. But do it kindly.

      Definitely all newbie homeschoolers should start out by surrounding themselves with other homeschoolers, so if she hasn’t yet connected…it’s not too soon. Many of us start connecting with our local homeschool community while our kiddos are preK. So help her get connected now and they can be a tremendous help.

      One last thing. If there isn’t actual criminal negligence involved here (again, I have NO IDEA)…this isn’t your choice to make. This is a choice for the parents of those children.

        The above information is very helpful. We are concerned for my husbands teenaged daughter. His ex wife decided to homeschool for several reasons. Most importantly is his daughter has dyslexia.

        Our concern is when visting in CA, his daughter told us she has not started her high school classes yet. She will be be 18 very soon (summer of 2018). Her mother stated that she had been too ill to teach; a total of 3 years. She told my husband and the two youngest girls that she had only 3 years to live at the time.
        This woman is a narcissist with 6 other children from different relationships. My husband’s daughter is the youngest. Her second youngest daughter has been ostracized by her mother and sister. She is in therapy and is taking classes to help her take her GED. She is also gathering information to file a child abuse claim against her mother as she was told she had graduated HS.

        Where can we go to gather information on whether or not she is complying with all of the CA homeschooling regulations?

        Thank you in advance for any assistance.

    Hi, I’m planning to homeschool my son who will be six in July. Our plan is to start him in kindergarten, after reading about the psa on several sites it says not to put that you have a child in kindergarten however his age being six make it so I need to file for the psa . Any suggestions for going forward with filing the Psa?

    Thank you!

    • WebmamaTina
      June 7, 2018

      Because of his age, you do need to start. The kindergarten thing is if the child is of age that is younger than the legal requirement, because kindergarten is not compulsory. But by age 6, they do need to start being formally educated, either at home or attending a school. So either kindergarten or 1st grade, it’s up to you to decide what grade to start him at.

      So go ahead and move forward and file your PSA this coming October, with the new school year. That is when PSAs are filed, if you are not starting mid-year.

    I am a certificated teacher in CA. I have taught middle school English for 18?years. My 6th grade daughter is currently enrolled in and attending a parochial school. I am contemplating homeschooling but after reading so much online and in this thread I just need come clarification.
    1. Do I need to file a PSA in Oct. to homeschool just my daughter?
    2. Where can I find condensed information about quality online programs/charters with links?
    3. If I enroll her in an online program I don’t need to file a PSA, correct?
    4. Since I am a certificated teacher do I need to file a PSA at all?

    Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    • WebmamaTina
      September 5, 2018

      1. If you want to homeschool your daughter legally in the state of CA, that is one of your options. If you choose the PSA option, then yes, you would file between Oct 1 and 15 for the current school year.
      2. I’m not really sure. There is a lot of info out there, but I don’t really know much about where to find info on the online programs because I rarely hear a lot of good things about them, so I don’t usually gather a lot of info on them. They tend to be very rigidly structured and very much school at home, from what I’ve heard. For some families, this seems to work well, but for the vast majority of the families I’ve heard feedback from, it was a very negative experience.
      3. It would depend upon the program. If the program is a charter school then no, you would not have to file a PSA. However, there are some online programs that do not fall under this category and do require you to register as a private school still. You would have to check with the program for specifics.
      4. You could qualify as a homeschool tutor as a certified teacher, but only if you have a multisubject credential. Also, I’ve heard the rules for a tutor are very different than those for a private school, so I’ve never heard of any credentialed teacher going that route. They usually opt for the private school option because of the freedom they get with that option. More details are found here:

        I guess it would be whether you want to teach rogue style or not. I will tell you about our personal experience.

        I homeschool through a charter school. We meet with a teacher once a month and show her a few pages of schoolwork on each subject. I was given an amount I could use for the school year on books, field trips, tutors, activities, etc. We only use a few hundred on books and materials. Most of our funds are spent on tutors and field trips. Since we are in Southern California, we can do Disneyland once a year but pretty much whatever they have as an option for field trips so due to our location, we have a good amount of choices. My child has taken math at a local homeschool facility where homeschool kids can get together in a class setting to learn. It was an option for us and not forced by the charter school. At the time, my kid needed more help with math. We have also used Kumon and private tutors paid with the funds from the charter school. With books, we just can’t use religious themes and authors. We’ve gotten quite a bit of books from Rainbow Reading. My child is taking one class online and the rest are books. In another year, we are going to adventure out and do the dual enrollment which means my child can take a class or two at a local community college. We will have to pay the health fee and for parking on the campus. There is testing twice a year but it’s not going to determine what books you can order and you don’t have to teach your child to pass the test. It’s not treated the same as public and private schools treat standardized testing. We came from private so we remember that time of year being stressful. We went into the test without the stress. Regarding the curriculum and the teachers, everyone has their own opinion. If you do your homework and research what a child the grade level as your kid would be learning, it should help gauge how you choose books. We decided to pick books similar to my child’s grade level. Now, when it comes to what is taught. We are not going page by page of every book. I chose two different books for some subjects and I pick out what I view as the most relevant topics and topics where my child will need to build on going into high school and college. This has kept the teachers away from bugging us about the books and lessons. Some lessons we spend more time on and others we go through quickly. Since switching to homeschool from private, my child is enjoying learning a lot more.

        Google homeschools in your area. Literally, Google “Homeschools _______ County in _________ State.” See what comes up. See if that school is rated on Great Schools or type the school name with the word “Review” into an online search and see what comes up. Research the school if you decide to use a charter school versus doing the PSA. I think the process moves faster if you do the charter school route and have researched the vendors before you enroll your child, but that’s just my opinion.

    I need help.
    My child is 5, she will be 6 October 29th, she has never attended school before. She is also behind on her shots, so there for she can’t attend a public school, she Flys out to her dad’s almost few days before June ends (across the U.S) but doesn’t return until September 1st. I don’t know how to go about this, since she will turn 6 end of October, will I get in trouble for her not being in am actual school? There has also been the pandemic -_- I also am trying to move to an entire new county by end of Aug, not sure which yet though, since everyone from south is moving up, housing is next to impossible.
    Due to my trauma, I don’t remember K-5th grade at all, so I’m basically re-learning it all too, but I’m having trouble with trying to research all this stuff, or anything in general. His state won’t give her shots since she is on CA with me majority of the time, and I slacked on getting her up to date fully(I know, my own fault) but with her hitting 6, a few months into the new school year, will I be arrested for her not legally being enrolled in schools? I also could use some help on how to teach her kindergarten stuff, all YouTube videos bore her, and are more for 3-4 year Olds.
    I’m literally lost, don’t understand the laws, or big words, and have no help with direction. I tried asking the welfare office for help and guidance, and they are extremely rude to me literally telling me I should know this stuff.
    If someone could please email me or something with the right direction and break things down for me, pretty much explain it like you are to a 7 year old, I would really appreciate it

      You and the child’s father are going to need to decide together as your child’s parents which option is the best option for her…but it sounds to me like filing the private school affidavit may be the right route for you. That doesn’t actually get filed until the beginning of October. And no, no one is going to be coming after you. Since your child hasn’t ever been in a public school yet, you’re not even on their radar yet. And if they did ask, you can tell them your situation honestly. You are going about things legally, so you have nothing to hide.

      Even though you do not FILE the affidavit until October, we do start homeschooling at the beginning of the school year (which we decide on the beginning date…though most families start around the same time as the public schools). Some families even homeschool year-round to enable them to take breaks at different times of the year that don’t coincide with the typical school breaks. It’s up to you to decide this. But we can go into this in more detail later…I can email you and talk to you in more detail.

      For step-by-step instructions on how to file the private school affidavit, the link is in that page that is linked above…but here it is directly:

      I will email you as well so you can ask me any other questions you may have.

      You got this.

      P.S. I tried emailing you, Brittany, but the email you included with your comment (backend) doesn’t work.

    If we have to file the affidavit starting October 1st, can I pull my 4 children out of school until them & start homeschooling, then file the affidavit on October 1st?

      Yes. You are official as soon as you start, not when you file.

    Hi there! Quick question. In California, do I need to file an intent to homeschool if my child has never been in public school? She just turned six and started first grade this year. I homeschooled her starting with kinder last year, so she’s never been registered with a public school. I did file the private school affidavit, just wanted to make sure there was nothing in addition that I needed to file. Thanks so much for your time and willingness to help 🙂

      There is no “intent to homeschool” in CA. If you filed the PSA, you’re all set!

    My kids are now in 1st and 3rd, and I am proud that our district just this year started offering a full day Pre-K, free of charge. More areas should implement this. The cost is really crazy. I can see why some opt to do it at home. Plus then the schedule gives you the flexibility to work around trips to the zoo, museums, playdates, other kids naps.

    Hello! Random question. We’ve been homeschooling through a charter school, but I’m wanting to pull my kids out of that for next year and file a PSA. My kids are in 5th and 7th grades right now, and I want them to be in 5th and 7th again next year (not for academic reasons). From your knowledge, do you know of any problems I will run into doing that, if we planned on sending them to a public or private high school? Thanks for any thoughts.

      If you mean that you want to have them repeat their current grades next year when you homeschool on a PSA…you are always free to choose whatever level you think your children should be at. Even in public/private schools. (Though they may weigh in and give you a hard time…it’s still ultimately the parent’s decision.) As the one doing the educating, of course, there is no problem. Just do what you feel is right for your kids!

      I’m not sure if you are worried about potentially sending them back to public/private school again in the future if they might question the repeating grades? But I don’t see why they would…kids repeat grades in public/private schools too.
