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.

Special Event: Meet Grace Llewellyn
When: Monday, April 28 at 6:00 pm
Where: Anaheim Downtown Community Center
250 E. Center St., Anaheim, CA 92805
Not Back to School Camp Director and Founder Grace Llewellyn will be in Anaheim on April 28th to meet families, share photos, and address questions. NBTSC is a catalytic gathering for unschooling and homeschooling teenagers across the U.S. and Canada (and occasionally beyond), with approximately 70-100 inspiring campers at each session. Now in its 19th year, NBTSC is excitedly adding a new January 2015 session in Joshua Tree, California. (There are also summer sessions in Oregon, and fall sessions in Vermont.) Grace is visiting California to connect with families who may be interested in this new session (and also in Oregon or even Vermont camps). Time permitting, she is also happy to address questions regarding her books (The Teenage Liberation Handbook: how to quit school and get a real life and education, Real Lives, Freedom Challenge, and Guerrilla Learning.) Dates, costs, and other information about NBTSC can be found at www.nbtsc.org. (While the early registration discount deadline for the summer/fall sessions has passed, people who come to our meeting will be offered the same $75 tuition break if they register within 1 month.)
We recommend arriving early. Space is limited.
