Welcome to Charter Home Study Academy!

We offer an outstanding K-8 public school option for families wanting to home school their children and our school is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). Each family works with a highly qualified teacher to support their studies at home. Parents and students meet with their teacher on a regular basis for resources, assessment, support and discussions of student progress. Teachers and parents work collaboratively to ensure that each student’s academic needs are met. We follow the California State Content Standards and curriculum is provided for all grade levels.

Additionally, students attend classes two days per week in core subject areas with work assigned for completion on the home days. Classes provide an opportunity for students to learn, interact, and collaborate with their peers.

Several family events and fieldtrips are held each year, providing enriching experiences while enhancing our school’s sense of community. If you would like to schedule an individual information appointment, please contact us.


Family Dance was a blast

The Charter Home Study Academy multi-purpose room was transformed into a rootin' tootin' hootenanny replete with delicious offerings from food trucks, Holy Grail BBQ, Comida Mexicana, and Cowtown Creamery.

CHSA recently hosted a family dance event that brought students, parents, and faculty members together for a night of fun-filled activities.

The event, held on March 23, featured exciting activities such as raffles, dance contests, a photo booth, and line dancing lessons. Parents and students alike enjoyed grooving to the beats of their favorite tunes and showing off their dance moves.

The highlight of the event was the dance contest, where students (and parents) competed against each other by grade level to win certificates to the book fair. The contest was judged by a panel of teachers, who evaluated the performances based on creativity and enthusiasm

The raffles also kept the excitement going, with participants eagerly waiting for their numbers to be called. Lucky winners also walked away credit to the book fair.

The photo booth was also a hit, with families posing for pictures in front of rustic backgrounds and props including real hay bales and saddles. The pictures were a perfect way to capture memories of the fun-filled evening.

In addition to the contests and raffles, the event also included line dancing lessons, which were led by a dance teacher, Carolyn Wakefield. Participants learned basic line dancing steps and enjoyed the opportunity to learn new moves.

The Charter Home Study Academy Elementary School family dance event was a great success, with families bonding over fun activities and creating lasting memories. The school's commitment to fostering a sense of community and family spirit was evident throughout the evening. In fact, the entire event was planned and put together by parents!
