Although many home school students are taught by their parents or work independently, increasingly students are finding it more enjoyable and more productive to work with an in-home teacher or tutor who implements a home school curriculum. In addition to learning traditional content as specified by the California State Standards, many home school students also pursue their personal interests in home school subjects such as specialized sciences, engineering, and computer programming.
Regulations concerning home school vary from one state to another. In general, most students are expected to spend at least 15 hours per week engaged in study. California government offers state standards for what material should be taught each year of school.
Although there are many curriculums available, we recommend fully accredited, WASC-approved curriculums, like the one offered by distance learning programs such as Laurel Springs.
