The HomeSchool Association of California has been around since 1987 when a small group of Bay Area homeschooling moms got together to start what was then called the Northern California Homeschool Association. Since then we've grown to a statewide organization. Those original families have moved on to new life stages, and passed their vision on to new members, that vision being an inclusive homeschooling organization dedicated to the support of homeschooling families in all their many flavors. We hold to the belief that homeschooling families are the ones best able to make their own educational choices. We are a non-profit volunteer organization.
