Most amazing homeschool program. Designed for students to academically strive and master higher levels of learning and create a true passion for education without being so consumed and concerned with peer pressure, cliques, bullies and "fitting in". A wonderful learning environment with amazing and supportive teachers, parents and students. The transition from elementary school to high school is completely at ease. Not your average brick and mortar school where one size fits all, but where students stand out of the crowd as extremely knowledgable, well rounded and mature. CHEP offers classes, field trips, yearbooks, and an amazing group of supportive parents and teachers. Thank you CHEP teachers, family, and long lasting friendships for all the wonderful years.

Best thing to happen to us, CHEP is the best option to teach kids at their own pace.

Great option for those who choose not to go to a traditional school. The staff is very supportive and caring! They care about each individual's progress, regardless of if they are "top of the class academically" or not. They offer great field trips, wonderful resources, and each campus offers grade specific teaching days.

It's a public homeschool. The parents have control over their children's education since they do it at home with the oversight of a certificated teacher. It's a win/win situation.

The teachers and principals are very kind, firm, and caring. They are wonderful people. My sons love CHEP and PCHS and thanked me many times for putting them in CHEP and PCHS. Also, I love being involved in my children's education and knowing exactly what they are learning.

I think is a great program were parents can be more involved in each child education and it gives us the opportunity to do it on a one on one basis which is great for the students.

We love CHEP as it was our homeschool from 1st - 8th grade. The school provided so much support for homeschooling families. In house classes, certified teachers to partner and enhance the learning experience. Social activities such as park day, student council, leadership classes, field trips, and classes on most all school subjects. Though CHEP does not offer flex funds, CHEP utilizes the fund to offer textbooks for every subject, parent workshops, and as needed tutoring for free. I highly recommend CHEP for a homeschool

My children are in their second year of homeschooling at CHEP. The environment is wholesome and the curriculum is challenging. CHEP offers various classes where kids learn and enjoy the social aspect of a school environment. PE and field trips are also planned but parents must be involved. Education at home works well for families who appreciate values and enjoy enriching their children's education before they're grown and gone!

CHEP has four site: North (Anaheim), West (Cypress) , South (Mission Viejo and Central (Costa Mesa.) I have schooled my children with the help of a certified teacher for 6 years. Educating at 'home' has far more benefits than sending your child to a local school. As long as you take education seriously, your child(ren) will as well. Some advantages are that you can tailor the curriculum to your child's needs; watch your child learn; and the best: be with your kids more hours per day. Check them out!

CHEP has been such a blessing to our family. When we decided to homeschool our children we were nervous about regulations and legal requirements. Chep has been a wonderful support. I am in my second year with chep and teaching my kindergartener and second grader. The teacher support and extra classes offered is wonderful. I really can't say enough about Chep! Where would I be without our teacher support? They are full of ideas and encouragement. Four sites in Orange County allow us to choose the home site that is closest, but we are able to participate in extra offered classes and support from any of the four sites. This is a quality homeschool option for parents and teachers from all backgrounds! I do wish there were more classes offered for socializing.

This has been great for my 3rd grader. She is learning at an advanced level with personal attention that she would never have in a regular school.

The K - 8 and 9 - 12 grade parts of the program are separate and work differently. Both provide support for the involvement of families. The K - 8 program allows a lot of flexibility and freedom for the parent to plan schedules, while the 9 - 12 grade portion is separated into individual courses and assignments taught by teachers. The high school online classes are great because they foster research skills and time management. However, it is a disappointment that the high school does not have honors, APs, and other classes that allow high school students to be a competitive applicant for universities. For example, students who want advanced levels of foreign language (they have up to Spanish 2), chemistry, and physics, have to take a course on their own elsewhere. On the other hand, they do offer 6 courses through Coastline College that allow students to work ahead.

My son is in first grade. We started with CHEP after we got a very negative attitude at his public school. He has achieved more from this school in 5 months then he ever could at his last school. He is doing up to 3rd grade work, loves his teacher and the staff as do I. Everything and everyone has been very positive. I would recommend this school to everyone and have. My son's over all attitude has changed 100% he's happier, friendlier to others and looks forward to doing his school work and going to classes at CHEP.
