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.
