Did you mean a charter school? There are many charter schools, some of which are campus-based, where children physically attend, and there are charter schools which are established specifically for homeschooled students. Some of the home-based charter schools allow parents to choose their own instructional materials, some provide materials like Calvert, and some are computer/Internet based and provide K12.
I am not a fan of home-basec charter schools. Children enrolled in them are legally public school students, not homeschooled students. They are subject to public school requirements, not homeschool laws. In that sense, they do not give parents the real freedom to choose their children's education.
