Hickman Charter School is a "university model", which blends the best of study at home with on-site classes and online programs. In 1994, HCS was created in response to parents who were looking for high quality individualized options for their children, and teachers who recognized that the traditional system does not meet the needs of all children. At HCS students are instructed by their parents at home with the support of an education coordinator and the many resources of the Hickman Charter School.
Homeschooling families in the Bay Area can utilize the Alameda County Resource Center to enjoy all the services provided at our Hickman site without making the drive to Hickman. Classes are taught here in the Bay Area throughout the year; all curriculum and other supplies can be checked out and returned; and the center in Emeryville is fully staffed for the convenience of those who reside in Santa Clara and Alameda counties.
