The mission of Valley Oaks Charter School is to support parents seeking assistance and accountability in their homeschooling endeavors. To provide high-quality learning experiences, parents, working in partnership with credentialed teachers, will access the vast and diverse resources of the school and community including the museums of Kern County.

Valley Oaks Charter School (VOCS) was established in 2000 by the office of Kern County Superintendent of Schools to provide support for parents/families that choose to homeschool their children. VOCS is a tuition-free parent choice/parent participation program which allows parents the flexibility to create individual educational courses of study for their children. Serving grades K-12, at five different locations in Kern County, we are passionate about providing the best education possible for our students.

Working together with parents/families, we strive to make our students become academic achievers, communicators, critical thinkers, culturally aware and productive citizens that are technologically literate and self-directed individuals.

VOCS is fully accredited through Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), and we are dedicated to helping those that choose to homeschool.
