News and Announcements

About The Homeschool Guild:

We believe children deserve the opportunity to discover their own path. Homeschooling provides families the freedom to explore, and individualize curriculum based on different learning styles. The Homeschool Guild facilitates exploration via the use of community resources, student and parent educational experiences, service and curriculum vendors, and the support of a credentialed teacher. Enroll now to be part of our Guild family in Sacramento and San Joaquin Counties to share the benefits of leveraged PCI resources and local, personal connections!
