California Homeschool Network is a statewide grassroots organization dedicated to protecting the fundamental right of parents to educate their children. Our website provides information about CHN, current state and federal legislation affecting homeschooling families, and how to get started educating your children at home.

California law requires that all children between the ages of 6 and 18 attend a public full time day school unless they are exempted. Understanding your options and abiding by the law will help you avoid truancy.
