Church School Option:
Choosing a Church School in Alabama can be difficult, as the options are numerous! We highly recommend that you and your spouse pray & discuss all the following topics before selecting a church school covering for your family:
*Level of Reporting Required by School *HSLDA membership required (or not)
*Curriculum Choice *Field trip availability
*Statement of Faith (required or not) *Mandatory Meetings (required or not)
*Lesson Plan Requirements *Parent Support Availability
*Cost of Tuition *Transcript Preparation by School (or not)
*Diploma Prepared by School (or not) *Graduation available or not (and cost)
*Dual College Enrollment *Educational Website Memberships
While we prefer HOPE Christian Academy, we would like to ensure you find the church school that best suits your needs. Here is a Google Spreadsheet prepared by some local homeschoolers that will help you decide what church school will best suit your needs:
Socialization is the SINGLE most common argument against homeschooling. HOPE Christian Academy's Support Group hosts 20+ activities each month. Membership is included with church school tuition.
Other Important Things To Consider:
HSLDA Membership - While HOPE Christian Academy does not require HSLDA membership, we do encourage it. HSLDA is prepaid legal assistance for homeschool families. They are a wealth of useful homeschooling information. They are also lobby our legislators to benefit homeschool families. You can save $20 by using the HOPE Christian Academy Discount # 210124.
