California Independent Study/Non-Classroom Based Charter Schools

Non-classroom based charter schools are legally allowed to serve students who live in the county of the district that they are authorized by, as well as students in any adjacent county.  

Some charters may choose to serve fewer counties than they are legally authorized to. Others may have been told by their authorizer which counties they can serve. 

Many of the schools that are listed have been authorized in multiple counties. If you have a question whether the charter school you are interested in serves your county and the grade level you are looking for, please check directly with them, info often changes from year to year. 

We are including a lot of choices, since many have waitlists. We hope you find a program that fits your needs. We would suggest that you try to get on the waitlist at 3-4 schools.
