Homeschool law in AL requires that you either a) employ/become a licensed tutor or b) establish/enroll in a 'church' school. Summary of the law can be found at:
Most homeschoolers in AL choose to use a cover/umbrella school to fulfill the requirements of the law. There are a number of these statewide, and each perform different services - from strictly signing your BOE paperwork to planning group activities to maintaining transcripts.
Additionally - there are a number of homeschool support groups statewide. These may or may not be affiliated with a particular cover/umbrella school and also can range widely in their activities and events.
Also - as he has already passed the AHSEE, is it necessary to school him his last two years? A lot of the colleges here are more concerned about ACTs and their placement testing then high school transcripts. You might give any one that he's interested a call to find out exactly what their entrance policies are. Good Luck to you!
No free school's in Alabama, but youcan ggetprogrms. About 1000$
It's a verry good program, above track actualy.
The homeschool laws in Alabama make it very hard to do the schooling yourself.
As per the law you will have to use an Umbrella School--this is a school to whom you pay $$$ and in return they send the schoolwork that you need, keep ALL records and tests and scores.
This is unfortunate since most people (like myself) prefer to control what their children will learn at a particular time and an Umbrella School does NOT allow you to fast track. It also does not allow you to call yourself a TRUE homeschooler.
