Welcome to Cross River Academy!

A note to our families and those interested in our cover school ...

COVID-19 brought about several changes in the way that things are done in our homes, communities and schools.  Cross River Academy has not been immune to these changes. 

Because of the COVID-19 virus, we have not been planning field trips or social activities.  This may not change in the coming school year.  If we feel that it is safe to plan outings, we will certainly do so, and hope that we can get back to that as quickly as possible.  Many places that generally host field trips are not allowing them at this time, but we do hope that will change soon as well.

Also, for several years, the Superintendent of Education in Alabama has had the opinion that a Cover School is not required in Alabama to legally homeschool, however, the law is written differently.  I would ask that everyone be diligent in their research regarding this.   If you choose to school without a Cover, please be aware that requirements can change at any time.  Be mindful of what the Board of Education in your district requires regarding notification of intent to homeschool.  Watch the ALSDE website carefully for changes.

As always, enjoy the adventure that homeschool brings!
