Alice, 63 — once barred from performing at a venue over claims his show was anti-Christian — is a substitute teacher at his local church.
He said: "You should see the look on people's faces. 'Alice Cooper teaching Bible class? But he's the spawn of the Devil!'"
The reformed alcoholic — whose shows involve fake blood, electric chairs and snakes — holds the lessons in Arizona, US.
Alice — real name Vincent Furnier — added: "Surely people get it by now — Alice is just a character. Alice hates going to church, but I go every Sunday."
School's Out star Alice, whose dad was a pastor, said he cleaned up his act after daughter Calico was born in 1981.
He said: "Before Cali came along I was living Alice's life. Every day was just one big party, fuelled by a bottle of whisky and case of beer."
