I received a call from a parent asking for homeschooling information for her
special needs child. The first question she asked was, "Can I legally
homeschool my special needs child?" The answer is "Yes", and there are
currently hundreds of families nation wide homeschooling children whose

questions you may have.

The Life Educational Alternative Program is more than quality academics. The
curriculum we use is built on a theistic philosophic foundation. Students
learn to see life from God's point of view. Their personal relationship with
God and their personal responsibilities to family, church, and community are
of primary concern.
"Open enrollment year round."

James 5:16 tells us to pray for one another, so that is just what we want to
do. Prayer can do amazing things both in us and through us. Acts 4 shows
churches praying together and mighty things happening. So we are here to
join with you in prayer for your needs. It is God's people coming together
to pray for God's hand to move in each of our lives. Let us pray with you.
