Los Angeles County Homeschool Support Group & Private PSP or ISP Directory

Los Angeles County Homeschool Support Groups & PSP's

The most important thing for homeschool success is to surround yourself with like-minded people who share information and resources, answer your questions, and ease your concerns. Your local Homeschool Support Group is where you can get connected with other homeschooling families. To find a Homeschool Support Group near you, simply click on the county where you reside from the list below.

IMPORTANT:

This directory is divided into two sections. The first section lists Homeschool Support Groups, and the second section lists Private School Satellite Programs or PSPs (formerly called "ISPs").

What's the difference?

In general, Homeschool Support Groups are gatherings of homeschool families who get together for park days and may also organize some field trips and co-op classes. (Some of these groups require a small membership fee, most do not.)

PSPs are small private schools. Homeschool families enroll (paying a tuition fee) to receive administrative support; such as record keeping, transcripts and testing.

We provide listings for Support Groups for free. We charge a small fee to list PSPs.
