HOPE Christian Academy
NOW ENROLLING FOR THE 2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR!
HOPE Christian Academy is going paperless!
Registering is as easy as 1 - 2 - 3 !
1. READ the Church School Information to confirm all the current school regulations/requirements.
2. SUBMIT THE ONLINE APPLICATION FORM / TUITION
Your will need the following documents to complete the application:
a. Copy of parent/guardian State Issued ID
b. Copy of parent/guardian High School Diploma/GED Certificate
c. Copy of Student(s) Birth Certificate
d. Copy of Student(s) prior school records/report card(s) (if available)
All registrations take 4-6 weeks to process and receive your Church School Enrollment Form, unless you add EXPRESS Processing Fee for faster service.
RENEWING Families - This year ONLY, all renewing families must complete a NEW Online Application Form. After this year, renewing families only need to pay tuition to re-enroll (unless there is a contact information change). This new application process confirms your identity and high school diploma/GED. It also verifies your child's identity. Thank you for your patience with this new process.
3. Submit Church School Enrollment Form to local Board of Education:
Once your tuition and application have been received. Your paperwork will be reviewed for accuracy. If there is a problem, you will be contacted by phone. You should receive your Church School Enrollment Form for each student listed via email within 4-6 weeks. You must complete that form manually, make 2 copies, and return one to HOPE Christian Academy. The other copy should be sent to your local public school district. The law (Code of Alabama 16-28-7) requires the PARENTS to submit school enrollment forms to the local school district, so we (as a school) are unable to lawfully submit that to the school district for you.
A School Records Request form are provided ON your child's enrollment form. Please complete, sign, and date it. Copies of these forms should be mailed to all previous schools attended. We strictly maintain the privacy of our student records. Records may be inspected by parents at any time, but will not be released to outside entities without a School Records Request Form signed by the parent(s). The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. (see: http://www.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/ferpa/index.html )
Since HOPE Christian Academy receives no federal funding, this act does not apply to your student(s) records. Your child's records will not be released by HOPE Christian Academy without parental permission. Records will not be released until family balance for any forms, classes, etc. are cleared.
