About Us

Alabama Hope Academy is very happy and thankful for being one of the oldest cover, church, umbrella, private schools in the state of Alabama. We provide covering for the entire state of Alabama, so you can homeschool at home under a home program under Alabama Hope Academy as your cover school. Your school name, diploma, etc., will be Alabama Hope Academy. Once you withdraw your child from public school and enroll with us  you will no longer be part of public school system at all. You will only follow Alabama Hope Academy requirements rules etc. . We have not had any dispute, disagreement, or problem at all with any superintendent in the entire state of Alabama for many many years. 

We have never had any college, military branch, or employer refuse our transcript or diploma. (Parent must make sure we have correct grades, info, etc., for such)


 We are located in North East  Alabama in the county of Dekalb.

If you live in Alabama you may enroll with us.  We are Christian  and  welcome all!

We do not require:

  • Any statement of faith.
  • Any meetings at any time.

Homeschoolers can be legally enrolled with AHA within minutes.  Legal parent/guardian clicks enroll button, pays with credit or debit card.  On bottom of payment thank you page you click link.  You fill out your enrollment forms online. You print and save to your PC. Takes an average 8 minutes and you're legal. You print your form and mail to your public superintendent. That's it. 

New for school year 2014-2015:  We have a new administrator Mrs. Gale Hairston. If you need any info or help please email her at gale@ahakids.org. New this year we will have  field Trips and our first  High School Graduation.

We hope to add more things during the year including co ops.  If you have a need, an idea or suggestion please just email Gale at gale@ahakids.org with suggestion in subject line.


We firmly believe every parent has the right to homeschool,  to teach their children what, where, when and how they choose.

We are here so you can do that. Our slogan and firm belief is simply "Alabama Hope Academy is where you can focus on your homeschool and family, not your cover school."

We want to support all homeschoolers anyway we can. We are here when and if you need us, otherwise we stay out of your way.  If you need info, support and or help in Alabama with homeschool we will have a support group up and running soon.
