Homeschool

  1. Individual Homeschool could qualify as a private school by filing an annual “Private School Affidavit,” per the stipulations and instructions. cde.ca.gov/sp/ps/affidavit.asp
  2. Private Satellite Program (PSP) is often a hybrid between home and in-class learning with several students on certain days of the week. This option provides socialization for students and parents while allowing for the bulk of instruction to happen at home. Many TMS families do PSPs. has.org/private-school-satellite-programs.html
  3. Independent Study Program (ISP) and Charter Schools: Children are considered public school students and abide by the rules and policies of the public school. Funds may be provided to choose the curriculum and put toward school-approved extra-curricular activities. cde.ca.gov/sp/eo/is
  4. Certified Private Tutor: Check TMS Weekly, GCC Opportunity Sheet, and Facebook groups for tutors through TMUS & GCC.
