Seton maintains a California Office in the Los Angeles area. Records are kept for California students enrolling through this office. (Please continue to send papers to be graded to our Virginia office. Counseling questions and SEM orders should be directed to our Virginia office.) A display of curriculum materials is available for perusal and for purchase.
A large percentage of our families are from California, and this office gives us a better opportunity to serve our California families.
California Homeschooling Option 2
California families that enroll with Seton use California homeschooling Option 2, since Seton is a private school satellite program in California.
While California requires an annual affidavit for home schooling families, Seton families do not have to file this document. Seton is a private school satellite program, with an office in the state of California. Therefore Seton files the affidavit for all students enrolled with Seton each year. Additionally, Seton provides the curriculum and meets the other requirements set by the California Department of Education.
From the Home School Legal Defense Association website concerning homeschooling in California:
“Homeschooling with a private school satellite program (PSP):
A private school satellite program is one in which the majority of the instruction is provided at home. The PSP must meet all the requirements for operating a private school, which are listed under ‘Homeschooling as a home-based private school’ above.”
For more information on the California private school satellite option for homeschooling, you can go to the Home School Legal Defense Association website, www.hslda.org, and click on California, then click on laws, then look for the section titled “Homeschooling with a private school satellite program (PSP).”
