Alabama Church Cover Schools may or may not require a Statement of Faith

Alabama Church Cover Schools (sometimes called umbrella schools) are a way to homeschool legally in Alabama. Dial the contact numbers from your smart phone.

How to Start a Church School

CHEF helps churches form church schools
At CHEF we believe a big part of our mission is to help churches form church school ministries for home educators. We have helped dozens of churches form the legal basis for a church school. The strategy is to establish what we call “virtual schools” with a legal basis (a ministry of a local church) and the administrative functions of any other school. The only difference between our schools and classroom schools is that the classroom is in the home.

No Statement of Faith

Academy for Excellence
We have a “local program” for families in St. Clair, Talladega, and Calhoun counties, as well as a “statewide” program for others. We offer record-keeping on-line, a message/chat board for homeschoolers, help choosing curriculum, field trips, and more. Requires a BIble study, your choice. Local: St. Clair, Talladega and Calhoun Counties, as well as Statewide.
