We believe homeschooling is a tutor type method of private education within the home, where the parents are a child's primary teacher.
We believe that every child is unique and gifted in some way and the way you educate should promote these gifts.
There are many reasons families may decide to homeschool their children.
Whatever your reason may be for considering to homeschool is your own personal right.
We are here to provide you with the legal means of doing this in the state of Alabama.
We think it is important to offer a place to unite and have assistance with support from advisors, educational resources, academic records, and a variety of programs and activities.
Because homeschooling is the fastest growing educational alternative today, there are many ways to avoid the so called non socialization associated with homeschooling.
Many families participate in homeschool support groups, scouting, church, recreational activities, and other associations. There are many ways for homeschoolers to meet other children. Studies have shown that in many cases homeschoolers have a more positive self image than their schooled peers.
Many people ask the question about what will your child will do after high school years. The truth of the matter is most colleges are proud to get homeschoolers. Admission professionals are beginning to understand that well prepared home schoolers deserve an equal chance to prove themselves and they are wonderful additions to an educational community.
Colleges look at the ACT and SAT scores .Both of these standardized test have begun asking exam takers if they were homeschooled.

In some cases, homeschoolers have also entered colleges early making full use of the colleges accelerated programs and dual enrollment programs.
