In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off cover school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Alabama Homeschooling Support Groups

One of the first things I truly believe you should become involved with as a homeschooler is a support group. Field trips are very limited in what they can do for finding new friendships. You need to be involved with a group that communicates on a regular basis. Lucky for us, Alabama offers lots of support networks and resources. 

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 everestacademy1@gmail.com 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 everestacademy1@gmail.com so that it can be updated or removed. 

*Please note that all links were valid when originally posted, but as you know, things change. If you find a broken link, please let us know so that we can change or delete the listing.

Anything you come across that would benefit our families, please post it! Have an idea for an outing or activity? Organize it and post it! Before you plan out your activity, take a moment to check the calendar on the yahoo group site – that way you don’t over book a date. After you’ve planned your activity, please add your event to the calendar for others to reference. At the beginning of each month I will send a posting of all the events on the calendar for the month, just a bit of a reminder.  No one person is in charge of our list – there is no administration. We have two moderators on the group that simply monitor the postings to be sure everything is of benefit to our families. We hope you enjoy the group – our families are pretty fantastic and we’ve had lots of fun in the past. Keep in mind, however, that our group is only as good as you make it. If you don’t see something happening that you wish your children could be involved in, than start it! Chances are there are others who wish to have the same thing!
