Resource for Orange County Families

We wanted to share a list of mental health, financial and food resources surrounding Orange County in case you or someone you know may need them. As a school, we would really like to provide options for families that are struggling in this area. Please let us know if you are in need of more assistance. We are here for you all during these times, and will get through this together.

Homeschooling Advice

Back To Gameschool: A Game For Every Subject

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of play. I truly believe that homeschooling can be almost all fun and games. Does that mean our homeschool is all sunshine and roses? Not even close! But I do think homeschooling can be more fun than we think.

Play has the power to transform a homeschool. And, guess what? Science has shown that play is good for all of us, not just our kiddos!

Today, I’d like to share some of my back to gameschool tips with you.

Cabrillo Point Academy Family Liaisons

Ladan Rashidi - OC Family Liaison

I have three children who are 3, 7 and 9 years old, and I was previously a high school math teacher. Five years ago, our family chose the path of homeschooling and we have enjoyed it ever since! I am passionate about helping families navigate their way on their exciting homeschooling journey, and connecting individuals to build a community!

Shaemanique King - OC Family Liaison

I am a mom of four children, ranging in ages from 2 to 9 years old, and have homeschooled for the past five years. I consider my homeschooling style to be “eclectic” as I draw from many sources and philosophies. I enjoy planning and hosting activities and events and look forward to interacting with and supporting homeschooling families!
