HSC's Conference is much more than just a conference - it's a celebration, a party, a statewide gathering of diverse homeschooling families for learning, friendship, support, and fun!

Tickets on sale NOW!

We are proud to announce our keynote speaker Julie Lythcott-Haims, author of Real American: A Memoir and New York Times bestseller How To Raise An Adult.

Please go to our conference website for more information.


If your children are 6-18 years old and not enrolled in a charter school, public independent study program, or private school satellite program, remember to file your Private School Affidavit between October 1st and October 15th!
The filing period is in October, but any family new to homeschooling during the year may fill out the PSA once they have unenrolled their child from another full time school.

HSC's Facebook PAGE is updated daily with news, information, commentary, and fun!

HSC's Facebook GROUP is for homeschooling discussion. Ask questions, find resources, get support, make friends.

HSC is here to help you navigate the homeschooling world with information, networking, and support. Use the links
below to find what you need.

Are you also excited about homeschooling? Do you value the fact that homeschooling is legal in California and want to protect it? Are you interested in teaming up with other homeschooling parents to ensure our rights continue and spread the word about this amazing educational choice?

HSC offers a chance for you to get involved, make new friends, help others, gain new skills, and really make a difference.

Increasing diversity in HSC’s team of volunteers and membership is a priority for the newly elected Board. We have volunteer positions available that require only a few hours a week commitment, and volunteers will receive training and be supported by a Board liaison.

We are also seeking to fill two more Board seats and want to continue our emphasis on attracting candidates from diverse backgrounds.

Exciting things are coming to HSC.

We’d like to ask you to consider joining us for the ride! Please fill out a volunteer interest form by clicking on the link above or indicate your interest in a board position by contacting us at

The HSC Board of Directors holds business meetings several times per year at various locations around the state. HSC members who would like to schedule a visit to a Board meeting or request an item to be added to our meeting agenda, please contact us to do so. If you would like to volunteer to host a board meeting at your house, please let us know.

HSC is pleased introduce our newly elected Board of Directors

Please welcome HSC’s new Board of Directors:

Erika Davis-Pitre (Co-President, North), Tiffany Sandoval (Co-President, South), Jamie Heston (Secretary), Y-Vonn Teh (Treasurer), Martin Whitehead (Board Member), and Krisula Moyer (Board Member).

First, we’d like to thank all of the wonderful women who came before us on the Board for their significant contributions to HSC as we say goodbye and best wishes to Pam Sorooshian, Julie Schiffman, Qarin Van Brink, Katheryn Culwell and Cindy Rodriguez Castro.

Next, we’d like to thank all of the volunteers who give of their precious time to help us further HSC’s mission to support homeschoolers across the state.

Lastly, we’d like all HSC members to know that we are orienting ourselves to the job ahead, learning quickly what needs to be done, and are excited to roll up our sleeves and make HSC even better than it already is.

Please be patient with us as we tackle this learning curve, but know that there will be a summer conference, we will be focusing on diversity and inclusivity, we will be keeping tabs on legislative matters that affect homeschoolers, and we will be responsive to your concerns and comments, among other things.

Our next board meeting will take place in Southern California on October 21st. Please reach out to us at if you'd like to attend as we plan for the upcoming year in California Homeschooling.
