The state of Alabama recognizes three types of schools: public, private and church. The definition of a church school is:
"Includes only such schools as offers grades K-12, or any combination thereof including kindergarten, elementary, or secondary level and are operated as a ministry of a local church, group of churches, denomination, and or/association of churches on a nonprofit basis which do not receive any state or federal funding."

In addition to more academic challenge, another benefit which I believe is one of the best...your child will have more time to pursue their personal interests which will enable them to identify their passion and gifts. Every child has talents but sometimes in the busyness of life a student does so many things that it's difficult to narrow it down. Home school enables your student to focus and develop their interests whether it is music, sports, theatre, computers, writing, etc. What a tragedy when a high school student lacks time to figure out their greatest strengths and weaknesses.
Upon enrollment we offer consulting on choosing the best home school curriculum for your children. See "Parent Manual" for more info. Grades and attendance will be due 2x year on January 10th and June 10th. Unless you inform the office of a reason for being late with grades/attendance you may be dropped if the office does not receive a hard copy by mail to our office by the end of January and June. If there is a reason that you need more time we will work with you.
