Cedar Life Academy

Cedar Life Academy is a nonsectarian Private School Satellite Program (PSP) that provides paperwork assistance and homeschool mentoring to California families who wish to home-educate their children.

Cedar Life Academy is directed by Karen Taylor, a longtime homeschooler and leader in the homeschooling community. Because of her expertise and interest in California homeschooling, enrollment in Cedar Life Academy is limited to California homeschoolers.

Cedar Life Academy files a private school affidavit and maintains all of the school records that are required by the State of California.

This school does not teach children directly—the parents are the teachers of their own children. The director of the school helps ensure a successful school year by being available to provide support for Cedar Life Academy parents whenever needed.

Friendly regular communication is offered so that no one is homeschooling in isolation. For those families who previously had a child enrolled in another school, Cedar Life Academy will request the school records.

I'm Karen Taylor, the director of Cedar Life Academy. This school was founded almost 30 years ago by Becky Maxwell. Becky and I worked together to support California homeschoolers for many years!

I want your homeschooling years to be as successful and enjoyable as mine were, and I'm looking forward to helping you have a great homeschooling experience! My daughter, Kristen Taylor, is a member of the CLA team, and she and I are honored to continue Cedar Life Academy's long tradition of helping families who want to homeschool!
