Welcome to Regina Caeli Academy (RCA), a private school satellite program in California. RCA supports resident families who educate their children at home.
For 25 years, our Mission has been to serve Catholic and Catholic-friendly Christian families who homeschool independently, in accordance with the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. This means parents choose their own curriculum and are free to utilize alternative education resources such as local co-ops, homeschool-specific independent classes, online classes, and dual-enrollment in high school or college courses; while RCA serves as your “umbrella” organization between you and the State.
Home-based education in California is classified as private school education. RCA files the annual California Private School Affidavit under which each registered household is considered a “satellite campus” and parents are categorized as “teachers” of the school. Administration of RCA is conducted as for any private school in California. As such, RCA may publish a recommended Course of Study for elementary and high school, and high school graduation course and credit requirements. Since RCA does not offer in-class instruction, students are exempt from mandatory vaccination requirements for enrollment.
When parents enroll under RCA, they are assured they are homeschooling in compliance with California law. Personal information and records are kept private and secure, and are not reported to the State. Standardized testing is not required, nor is submission of work samples.
