I have listed below all of the Alabama-based homeschooling support groups that I could find including Yahoo Support Groups, Facebook, and others. I only included the ones that looked active and moderated. As always, this is not an endorsement but rather for your information. The final decision as to what you choose to become involved with is your's alone.
If you cannot find a support group that interests you, I strongly urge you to start one in your area. Everest Academy would be more than happy to help you advertise it. If you know of an Alabama homeschooling support group that is not listed, and I am sure there are many, please email the information to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can share the information with the rest of the homeschooling community.
Please note: All links below were valid when posted, but groups (and links) come and go. If you find a dead link, please let me know at email@example.com so that it can be updated or removed.
