Enrollment FAQ

What documents are needed to enroll?

All students are required to have the following documents:

  • Birth certificate, passport, certificate of live birth or other valid evidence of birth date
  • Immunization record. Families who do not immunize may complete the California Schools Immunization Record and leave the shot portion blank.
  • Proof of Residency. This will be verification of a service to the home address listed on your application. Some examples of acceptable proof of residency include: utility bill dated within 60 days, vote-by-mail ballot, mortgage statement, signed rental agreement.

Additional documents, if applicable:

  • IEP or 504 Plan
  • High School Transcripts: Unofficial or Official (10th-12th and 9th grade transfer students only)

How do I know my student has been enrolled?

You will receive a successful enrollment email sent to you and your teacher once your enrollment is processed.

How is Personalized Learning personalized and what is the benefit of Instructional Funds?

Personalized Learning occurs as a result of mutual respect between the Parent, who home schools the student, and a caring, supportive credentialed teacher. Every student is allocated a budget of Instructional Funds that can be spent on the student’s specific learning needs, under the approval of their teacher. Funds are paid directly to curriculum vendors and service providers.

Instructional Funds can be used to navigate an authentic and dynamic personalized learning pathway by paying for computers, high quality curriculum, tutoring, and enrichment activities.

How do I withdraw my student from this school?

All withdrawal requests must be forwarded to your HST (Homeschool Teacher), not to Enrollment. Your HST will complete a Withdrawal Survey that is later submitted to the Records Department.
