Homeschool Covers/Groups in Alabama

If you are new to homeschooling in Alabama, it’s a good idea to look at the state law dealing with homeschooling (which is actually a form of private schooling here).  You can view information on homeschooling in Alabama, you can see it at HSLDA’s website: www.HSLDA.org. If the link doesn’t take you straight to Alabama’s information, just follow the instructions below.

If you are from outside of Alabama, you can check out your state’s homeschooling law at www.HSLDA.org Go to the “Quick Navigation” on the bottom right side of the home page, and click on the link that says “Your State.” You can find your state, and then find the information you need.

Since homeschooling in Alabama is easiest done through a church cover school, I’ve included a list of the ones in Northern Alabama, or that are state wide, that I’ve run across.

Church Cover Schools in Alabama

In the greater Huntsville area there are dozens of homeschool groups that will enable you to fulfill the requirements to homeschool legally in Alabama

Different groups have different requirements, different fees, and offer different resources.  It is worth taking some time to see which one will fit your family’s needs best.  (But remember, you can also change groups later if you need to…Don’t get overwhelmed by the choices and the “need” to find the best group for you the first time out!)

I am working to make this list as complete as possible, though I am not including church covers that are limited to members of that particular church.  If you know of any group(s) that I have left off, please contact me at cmmjaime@alum.mit.edu. (Or if any of this information is out of date, or incomplete.) As of March 2017, the links were all working.

We are an on-line alternative for home school families throughout Alabama.  We believe in providing choices in education, therefore do not require specific curriculum.  We will report to your local Board of Education that your students are enrolled with us.  We provide a method of entering daily attendance for each student.

We require families to enter planned courses at the beginning of the school year including textbooks/resources and then require grades to be entered by January 15th and June 15th.

We issue transcripts (including transferred credits from previous schools) and diplomas upon meeting graduation requirements which have been accepted by many post-secondary institutions as well as various military branches.  We also provide recommendation letters.
