Heartwood History and Community

We are 21 years old and counting!


In 1997 a handful of parents who wanted the liberty to homeschool their children joined together under a traditional school. They later outgrew that setting and formed a separate church school cover.

In April 2017, the school became Heartwood Christian Academy, a ministry of Oak Park Church. There have been changes over the years, but our mission has remained the same "To Empower Homeschooling Families to Raise Godly Leaders."

Alabama and nearby Mississippi counties...


We welcome families with K-12th grade students from Alabama and nearby Mississippi counties.

Heartwood Christian Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, sex, or disability. 

However, if the attitudes or actions of the individual family endanger the peace and purity of the school or the rights of homeschool families enrolled with Heartwood Christian Academy, the administrators reserve the right to refuse or rescind membership into Heartwood Christian Academy.

We are here for you!


Heartwood accepts the brand new, or the seasoned, homeschooling family. Our goal is to help each family find its best homeschooling method.

The administrative leaders offer personal attention and group workshops. In addition, the care group leaders are available for individual support.
