General Description:

We’re a legal church school for families with students in grades K5-12. Almost everything can be done online, so that we can enroll families across the state. We currently do not hold any co-op classes or sponsor any field trips. We are located in Pell City and primarily serve the Talladega and St. Clair counties, though we are open for statewide enrollments.

Mission Statement:

We are a legal Church school in Alabama. Our aim is to help families balance the responsibilities and costs of homeschooling in our state. Our goal is to keep support high and requirements low while still encouraging excellence in home education.

  • Report grades, curriculum, and attendance twice a year.
  • Applicants must recognize the Statement of Faith that the school operates under, but are not required to claim it as their own.

  • Free help with curriculum planning and directions/guidance for new homeschool families.
  • A high school graduation ceremony (most years–Covid excepting last year and this) and transcript service.
