ADMISSIONS & ENROLLMENT
Alabama Hope Academy has always tried to have only Alabama state laws.
We feel it unnecessary to put more rules, requirements on the parents,and, homeschool families than the state requires. We have made one exception on required school days. The state law does not require any certain amount of days for a homeschooler in Al. but under Al tutor law it requires 140 days of school per year. Now we all know public and traditional private schools have more like 180. So we do require 140 days per year, however, you may go over that amount as much as you like. Yes you may homeschool 365 days per year, provided you are enrolled with us for the whole 365 days.
Any work , learning must be while you are enrolled. For example, your child learns during summer and you want it to be counted on transcript but you did not re enroll on time and you were not enrolled with any one at time of learning, Those grades , credits etc will not count. If you did re enroll on time and it is summer, and your child learns, yes it will count.
We want the student to receive credit for all work done. The only way this is possible is if the parent/guardian who enrolled the student fills out and sends back to AHA a request for transcript. This is a form where all subjects, grades, credits, school year, etc., goes so we have the correct info to put on the transcript. Once you request form from AHA email@example.com , the form is emailed to you with easy instructions for you to fill it out just like you did your enrollment forms. You send form back to us and we make your transcript. It will be sent to new school once we receive request for school records from school or sent to you with diploma .
We must have that form before you have transcript. All requests must be in to AHA on or before May 1st.
The Alabama State Law requires us to notify the public superintendent when a child does not re enroll, transfers or withdraws. AHA does this as soon as we receive transfer or withdrawal. Our re enrollment is May 30th of each year. If child is not re enrolled on or before May 30th the first week of June we notify public school that child did not re enroll. Can child re enroll at later date? Yes, but instead of filling out just one form with re enrollment info you will be required to fill out all new enrollment forms again and notify your public superintendent again. You may have to pay late re enrollment fee as well. We have tried to make re enrollment effortless. You can pay re enrollment at any time during the year, after September, online at this site. You can set up reoccurring payments so each year it is automatically taken out on May 15th. Now really, could it be any easier? If you have any suggestions let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org . Put suggestions in subject line.
