The Birmingham Homeschool Directory is intended for businesses/organizations which provide offerings for the Birmingham, Alabama homeschool community.

Here are our T&C’s in a nutshell:

  • All new Listings will be checked by an editor before the Listing goes live on the Website. This is so we can check that links are working, and proof-read content for spelling  & grammatical errors.
  • You may be asked to verify that your offerings benefit homeschool families and students in the Birmingham, Alabama metro area.
  • We aim to approve all Listings within 24 hours of receipt, and often much sooner. If there are any problems with the Listing we will contact you on the email address that you provided.
  • It is your responsibility to update your Listing should any information change. If you no longer offer services for homeschool familes, please contact us at info@birminghamhomeschoolers.com.
  • We reserve the right to reject any Listings that we do not deem appropriate for the site. In this case any money paid would be refunded in full.
  • If you wish to cancel your listing at any time you must notify us in writing at info@birminghamhomeschoolers.com no later than 7 days before the renewal period.
  • You will be sent a renewal notice 15 days before your Listing is due for renewal. Should you not make payment by the renewal date your listing will be downgraded to a Basic Listing until we receive payment from you.
  • If you cancel a Listing half way through a Listing period you will not be entitled to refund of the time remaining.
