Grace Lutheran offers a cover school, which is a legal avenue for parents who wish to home school their children in the state of Alabama. We believe that parents should be able to educate their children and have the freedom to choose the curriculum that best fits their children’s needs. Families using our Home School Cover must provide our office with course descriptions, attendance records, semester grades, and other information as required by the State of Alabama. Students enrolled in our Home School Cover are invited to participate in extracurricular activities, chapel, assemblies, and the Ala Carte program. Grace Lutheran accepts home school students from all over the state of Alabama regardless of religion, culture, or ethnicity.
Homeschool families are welcome to join us Wednesday mornings for chapel in the Grace Lutheran Church Sanctuary. Chapel lasts about 30 minutes.
Our homeschool cover families may also join the school community for special assemblies. Information will be found in the weekly newsletter.
Homeschool families are welcome to participate in Grace’s seasonal sports and after school clubs and activities. Sign-up information will be sent home at the start of each sports season by email. Please contact the Athletic Director for additional information about the sports teams. Club/Activity sign-up information will be sent out as each activity begins. Contact the school office or designated contact to participate.
Families may choose to enroll their students in regular in-person classes through our Ala Carte Class program. For current class schedules, please contact the school office. Homeschool students may take achievement tests with the general school population in early Spring. Homeschool families will be notified by email and the weekly newsletter of upcoming testing. Parents must enroll their child for testing with the school office by the end of January so that sufficient testing materials can be ordered.
Grace Lutheran Child Development Center (CDC) offers classes from six weeks through three years old, providing year-round, loving care for our precious little ones. Parents and teachers work closely together in a Christian family environment to meet the needs of your children. Classes are grouped according to the developmental stage of the children and placed in classrooms filled with age-appropriate furniture and play/learning materials. Our play-based environment encourages learning and discovery through play and social interactions.
High quality academics in a family environment. Our well-qualified teachers work with each student to help them grow and achieve academically, socially, and spiritually. Small class sizes, high expectations, and strong teaching/learning settings provide opportunities for students successfully prepare for their future – in school and in life.
