Homestead- Your Partner in Family Led Homeschooling

Homestead was designed to be a helpful resource for families who wish to develop and deliver their child's education at home. It is a free, family-led homeschooling program through Ventura Unified School District. Enrollment is open to students in Grades K-8 in Ventura County. Families work with a credentialed teacher to develop an individualized program for their child.  There are various vehicles for the delivery of education, including online resources, pen and paper and everything in between, all led by adults in the home.  The program is housed out of Blanche Reynolds Elementary and includes opportunities for in-person engagement for students and teachers (during non-COVID times).

Homestead is an exciting alternative educational experience. For more information visit the Homestead website. To discuss or enroll contact Anne Bemel, Lead Teacher at 805-289-1817 x 2122 or the office at 805-289-1817
