There are two ways to home school legally in Alabama. One is the "Tutorial Law" (Ala. Code 쳌16-28-5). Under this statute a certified teacher may instruct a student or students privately. The tutor must submit to monitoring by the local school district officials, and hold school a minimum of 140 days a year at certain times. This option is not available to most home educators
Church School Law
The second and preferred way is known as the "Church School Law" (Ala. Code 쳌16-28-3). Under this statute students between the ages of 7 and 17 are exempt from the state's compulsory school attendance law if they are enrolled in schools operated by a church or association of churches
To facilitate home schooling, a church may form a school in which parents are enrolled as teachers and students are assigned to classes taught by their parents at home. Church schools are exempt from all state accreditation, teacher certification, and regulatory requirements. The only requirement is that the parent must submit a church school enrollment form to the local school district office indicating the church school in which the student is enrolled.
