Homestead School is designed for families who wish to  deliver their child's education in an independent study setting.  Enrollment is open to students in Grade TK-8 in Ventura County.

The focus at Homestead is on educating the whole child, academic, emotional and social.  Teachers and parents collaborate to develop an individual plan so that each student can grow academically and experience success.  True learning is a joyful experience and we aim to bring joy to our learners.

Each family is assigned a teacher who meets regularly with the parent(s) and student(s).
They meet with their teacher to:

  • plan lessons
  • review work
  • assess individual needs, progress and goals
  • help the student with assignments
  • discuss and check out curriculum
  • discuss upcoming classes and events

The Homestead library is free for families and students to use and available to the families to borrow instructional materials and books of all kinds.

Each month families receive a calendar of upcoming activities, classes, field trips and school events.  These experiences are central to the Homestead experience and designed to promote a sense of community for learning and provide opportunities for our students to connect with other independent study students, make friends and benefit from the enriching experiences provided by all our Homestead teachers.
