About the ILA High School Classes & Private School Satellite Program

Welcome to the Independent Learning Academy (ILA)’s High School Program!

All charter, non-charter, and PSP homeschooled high school students can register for classes at ILA. ILA also has its own Private School Satellite Program (PSP) that families can enroll in.

A PSP is a private school which has filed an affidavit with the state of California. We are excited to offer our PSP as one of the various ways in which your student can be homeschooled through high school.  We are dedicated to providing your student(s) with an exceptional academic, elective, and community experience.

If you are interested in learning more about our high school classes or our own Private School Satellite Program for grades 9-12 please contact us to schedule a tour and to request our PSP Handbook.  Please visit our school schedule to learn more about our high school classes and teachers.

We look forward to partnering with you to create a happy, memorable,and educationally fulfilling experience for your family!
