I'm looking to talk to homeschool families in El Dorado or Placer County. Does anyone know of a group called Horizon Charter Schools?

 

Is there another board you might direct me to? Thanks in advance.

Hello there!  We are nearby!  My kids are still young (eldest 3 1/2), but we have already looked and asked around at our local options.  I did have a hard time finding large groups the further up the hill I looked. However, I recently found a large group called "Folsom Homeschoolers" that is all inclusive http://www.meetup.com/Folsom-Homeschoolers/ . We plan on joining in the fall or sooner as all my DD's friends will be starting at their preschools.

 

On my hunt I did find this nice list as well:

As for Horizon, I have only heard good things about them from the few families I have spoken to. It sounds like a public-school-at-home type of option with more freedom than the district associated umbrellas.  The families I talked to had pulled their middle school children from the local school and it sounded like it was a very easy transition for them.
