General description:

Truth and Freedom Home School Academy is a ministry of Truth and Freedom Ministries, Inc. in Decatur, Alabama. We believe that educating our children is the responsibility of the parents, and obtaining a Christian education is an absolute necessity in our society. The goal of Truth and Freedom Home School Academy is to provide an opportunity for parents to “train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22: 6) Truth and Freedom Home School Academy provides administrative support and encouragement to parents, as well as providing a resource for families to educate their children at home in truth and in freedom in accordance with Alabama State Law.

Requirements:

We will submit a Curriculum Log for each child, the first year of enrollment only, indicating the purchased curriculum within thirty days of our enrollment date. We will maintain an Attendance Record for each child during each school year, indicating a minimum of 160 days of attendance per school calendar year. We will record this information on the Student Progress Report, which summarizes the cumulative educational progress and accomplishments of each child. The Student Progress Report will be due twice a year. The first report will be due on February 1st, and the second report will be due on August 1st. We will maintain our own copies of student files for each child which will include Registration forms, Public School Notification of Church School Enrollment, and Progress Reports. Single parents, as well as working parents and other family members, are welcome in our program, and six hours of homeschooling are required per day. We agree with the Statement of Faith which is stated in the Truth And Freedom Home School Academy Mission Statement. Standard Achievement Testing is available upon request. Parents and instructional family members attend required meetings when the Progress Reports are due in February and August.
