BCA is a legal home school covering in Alabama for parents who desire to provide academic excellence with a Biblical worldview. We are a statewide cover and have an office in Fairhope, Alabama. Founded in 2000 by Pastor Todd & DuAnne Seeley, BCA has been a leader in church schools for many years. We are a ministry of Eastern Shore Community Church.
After making the decision to home school their children, the Seeley's realized that few school choices were available at the time with legal advice, curriculum counseling and extracurricular activities. BCA was founded out of a desire to create a school that would provide help and support which parents want while educating their children.
BCA started with 4 families and has grown to over 100 families in South Alabama alone. We have some families in other parts of the state.
Our purpose is to offer support, encouragement and accountability for home school families.
We are an affiliate group of HSLDA and our families receive a discount with them. Group rate is $95.00. We do not require that you join HSLDA.
The state of Alabama recognizes three types of schools: public, private and church. The definition of a church school is:
"Includes only such schools as offers grades K-12, or any combination thereof including kindergarten, elementary, or secondary level and are operated as a ministry of a local church, group of churches, denomination, and/or association of churches on a nonprofit basis which do not receive any state or federal funding." S16-28-1(2)
