FL DOE Private School #3570 Founded in September of 2001
Welcome to the
Alternative Education Institute
"Our focus is supporting independent learners in the home environment."
New to homeschooling? Long time homeschooling family? New to "school at home" do to Covid-19 concerns?
The Alternative Education Institute is here as a private school option for registering your child to homeschool in Florida.
AEI students reside throughout the state. They are taught by their parents, caregivers, tutors and/or curriculum programs. Many of our students use free online curriculum such as Florida Virtual School. However, families have the freedom to choose their own learning styles.
There is a $25.00 registration fee per student, per year.
There are no other fees. Enrollment is open year-round.
If you choose to register with the county/state homeschooling program instead of a private school like AEI, you must have your child evaluated yearly by a Florida certified teacher. Most certified evaluators charge $40-$60 per evaluation. Registering with AEI does not require you to have your child evaluated by a Florida certified teacher.
Please note that if you have NOT paid the yearly registration fee for each child , your child is NOT enrolled in AEI and we cannot verify enrollment to any authority. We must have an application filled out AND your Paypal payment. Thank you.
