UNDERSTAND YOUR STATE LAWS
Each state has different laws regarding homeschooling.
Find your state laws with a search for "homeschooling in (your state)." We also recommend Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) for their comprehensive listings.
Four legal options for homeschooling in California.
1. Enroll in a public independent study program or public Charter School.
2. File the R-4 annually with the California Department of Education and maintain all records for your own private school.
3. Hire a credentialed tutor.
4. Enroll in a private school satellite program like Branson Academy PSP.
Check your state requirements before enrolling in our PSP. Branson Academy does not enroll students residing in states which require students to register with a PSP in that state. (i.e. Washington State)
We accept traveling homeschoolers and international homeschool students where instruction is English-based.
