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 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.

Calling All Alabama Homeschooling Teens!



We have groups in B'ham, Huntsville, Shoals, St. Clair County, and Cullman!!!

Open to all homeschoolers regardless of cover school!!!

I don't know about you, but I have had to really stretch at times to find social opportunities for my now 17-year-old son. We have had an awesome time with Teen Scene and made MANY new friends. Some of the things we have done with Teen Scene include bowling, movies, bonfire, camping, Galleria, parties, picnics, laser tag, swimming, and just simple "hanging out" and bonding.

What is Teen Scene? It is a group specifically for our Alabama homeschooling teens, age 12* and up, to socialize. This group is not educational but SOCIAL. (*Bham Teen Scene is for ages 14 and up. We offer a Jr. Teen Scene for ages 11 - 14 in the Bham area)

How much does it cost? Teen Scene is free to join. There may be fees associated with events, but we try to keep events low cost/free.
Can younger siblings participate? Yes, for the most part unless it is something that only teens can do. The point of the group is not to exclude the younger siblings but to have events where teens know other teens will be present. 

How often does Teen Scene meet? That all depends on the group of people involved. Some groups are more active than others depending on the effort put into the groups by its members.  

Please remember that the Teen Scene and Jr. Teen Scene groups are Everest Academy sponsored groups. Please review the Everest Academy Participation Policy here. Please note that drug and alcohol use at any event is prohibited.
