Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Everest Academy Participation Policy

Everest loves providing quality activities to the homeschooling community!  More and more opportunities are opening up every day as the general population becomes receptive to the homeschooling community.  We want to keep those opportunities open and not close any doors due to any disruptive or inconsiderate behavior.  Please note the following Everest Academy Participation Policy.  This policy pertains to anyone that attends any Everest Academy sponsored event.

Everest Academy Participation Policy:
  • Please check your email the morning of any field trip for last minute cancellations or instructions, especially during inclement weather. 
  • Please show up if you sign up (especially for limited or FREE trips - It reflects badly on homeschoolers as a whole when we have 100 people sign up and 10 people show up)
  • Please DO NOT show up if you have not signed up (if a RSVP is required).
  • Please arrive on time. 
  • Each child MUST be accompanied by a responsible adult. "Drop offs" are not allowed.  Students of driving age may attend without an adult, but please note that we are not responsible for your child's safety if you make that decision.  
  • Please make sure that field trips are age appropriate for your children. 
  • Children should be supervised at all times. 
  • Make sure to follow any rules/policies set forth by the establishment we are visiting.
  • Children are expected to behave. Disruptive families will be asked to leave the event. 
  • There is a zero tolerance rule for any acts of violence, abusive behavior, profanity, or illegal activities. 
  • We take lots of pictures which may appear on the Everest Academy website or Alabama Homeschooling Facebook page (no names listed without permission) 
  • Everest Academy is not responsible for any injuries, theft, or loss of personal property at any events. All participants take full responsibility for their children and attend events "at your own risk".
  • All events are family friendly.  Drugs and alcohol use is prohibited.
  • Everest Academy reserves the right to update this policy as needed.
Participation Restrictions
Participation restrictions will be enforced for any families who do not follow the Everest Academy Participation Policy:
  • Warning 1 - Written notification of complaint with Participation Policy will be sent via email.
  • Warning 2 - Written notification of complaint, Participation Policy, and notification that there will be one more warning before restrictions are enforced.

  • Warning 4 - Written notification of complaint, Participation Policy, and remainder of the school year restriction from activities will be sent via email.
Please note that the above plan is only a generality and that participation restrictions will be set in proportion to the level of the severity of the behavior.  Everest Academy reserves the right to restrict any family from any and all field trips/activities.   

Disclaimer: With all field trips, Everest Academy suggests that you research the subject matter to determine if each field trip is appropriate for your family.  All field trips are offered on an optional basis and not required.  Field trips are offered as an educational outlet only and does not constitute endorsement of the organization or beliefs.
