CARE Scholarships

CARE Scholarships are available to first-time homeschooling families who are new to HomeLife Academy. The CARE Scholarship is designed to financially assist families and students in need in situations where homeschooling is the best and only viable option for their student. This may be due to natural disaster, health issues, acts of violence, bullying, harassment, and/or mental health conditions, such as depression, fear, and anxiety.

Families have the opportunity to request this scholarship through the registration application for HomeLife Academy. When you checkout, choose “Other Payment Options” and the scholarship application will be available. Begin your HLA enrollment here!


HLA Family Scholarships

HLA Family Scholarships (needs-based) are available to returning families who have been with HomeLife Academy for at least one school year. The Needs-Based Scholarship is designed to assist families and students in need due to financial crisis.

HomeLife families have the opportunity to request this scholarship through the registration application process at www.homelifeacademy.com. When you checkout, choose “Other Payment Options”, and the scholarship application will be available.

HLA Missionary (M) Scholarships

M Scholarships are provided to homeschooling families registered with HomeLife Academy who serve on the mission field. We recognize the financial sacrifices many missionary families make and want to alleviate some of that burden so the family can continue to homeschool. If financial assistance is needed above the amount provided on the M Scholarship, families may also apply for the HLA Family Needs-Based Scholarship. 


CARE Grants

CARE Grants are offered to homeschooling families regardless of umbrella affiliation for financial needs above and beyond registration assistance. Whether a family is facing need due to health issues, job loss, or natural disaster, the CARE Grant can be used to reduce financial barriers to continue homeschooling by helping to pay for curriculum, school supplies, laptops, or meet immediate needs. Begin your application here. After your application has been reviewed, you will receive a phone call to further discuss your circumstances and options for help.


Curriculum Assistance

Curriculum is an essential piece of homeschooling and it is HCF’s desire for each homeschooling family to have the tools and resources they need. Our curriculum assistance team is here to connect families with free, discounted, or low-cost resources. If a family has experienced curriculum loss due to natural disasters or hardship, we work to help them recover curriculum for limited schooling disruption. Submit the form here
