Redwood Christian Schools Homeschool Program

Redwood Christian Schools has been working with home-schooling families in the greater Bay Area for several years. Our purpose is to partner with homeschooling families to assist them in attaining their educational goals. RCS is accredited by ACSI (Associated Christian Schools International) and WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges).

RCS partners with families in many ways: we provide PSP services (Private Satellite Program), maintaining all records, offering assistance in choosing curriculum, and offering a “sounding board” for those who have questions regarding educating their children. Homeschool families may participate in many on-campus activities such as Chapel, Library, picture day, special assemblies, SAT, PSAT, other standardized  testing, vision screening, and much more. Families may also choose to attend some classes on campus with the day-school students. Families can “mix-and-match” what we offer in whatever way best meets their needs. See the “Information” section below to find out more!



Redwood Christian Schools Homeschool Program has been established to partner with families who have accepted the challenge of providing a Christ-centered home education for their children. The Private Satellite Program provides support, assistance, guidance, encouragement and accountability to these families.
Homeschooling is one way to meet the biblical mandate to train up children. It takes into account the gifting of the parent-teacher, the lifestyle of the family, and the needs of the individual student.
To help parents realize their Christian educational goals within their homes, RCS will provide the parent-teacher and the individual student with as many services and opportunities as possible to aid in the fulfillment of the biblical mandate of training a child with a solid Christian education.
