See the Full list of Homeschooling Requirements by State

Below is a quick reference guide on the homeschooling requirements for the state of Alabama. For more information on the legal requirements visit the HSLDA Alabama page.

According to the HSLDA, Alabamans have three different options for homeschooling.

Option 1: Homeschooling with a church school
A church school offers instruction in grades K–12 or any combination thereof, including preschool, through onsite or home programs, and is operated as a ministry of a local church, group of churches, denomination, and/or association of churches that does not receive any state or federal funding. A home may be the location where a child receives instruction as a student attending a church school.”

Option 2: Homeschooling with a private school
A private school is established, conducted, and supported by a nongovernmental entity or agency offering educational instruction in grades K–12 or any combination thereof, including preschool, through onsite or home programs. A home may be the location where a child receives instruction as a student attending a private school. A parent may establish a home-based private school, or the home may be an extension of an existing private school.

Option 3: Homeschooling using a private tutor
