Asbury Academy
is an inclusive homeschooling church school for parents in the Greater Birmingham area.  We are a ministry of East Lake United Methodist Church.   Founded in 1991, as the "East Lake United Methodist Academy (ELUMCA),
Asbury Academy is dedicated to providing information, resources, support, experience, fellowship and fun to homeschooling families in Alabama.  

 Asbury Academy was formed to enable parents to take responsibility for their children's academic, emotional and moral growth through teaching at home. We believe in the family and in its ability as an institution to instruct children in the most positive and loving environment possible.

Our purpose is to help you, as homeschooling parents, by supporting you in this endeavor.  We strive to help you by offering informative faculty meetings, as well as social and educational events for the children. We maintain a permanent record for each child enrolled as well.

Asbury Academy was formed to allow people the opportunity to instruct their own children in the religious belief system that is personal to their own family. We therefore require no statement of faith, but rather trust that those families who take the responsibility of educating their own children will seek to educate those children in their religious faith as well.

We strive for educational excellence of the child and of the parents. We are never too old to learn. That is one beauty of homeschooling your child; you will grow as a teacher as your child is growing. We hope, as a member of our faculty and as a parent, that you will continue to be open to new ways of growing and learning.
  
   If you are new to homeschooling or are looking for a new homeschooling group, please contact our director, Beth O'Donnell, for information.
