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.

Humane Society Teen Club - The Humane Teen Club is for teens aged 12 - 15 years who have a sincere interest in learning about animal companionship.  Due to the nature of training and skill involved, the age requirement for volunteering is 16.  As a result, the Human Teen Club was create to give students the opportunity to learn and engage in topics focused on the benefits of animal companionship and animal welfare.  While many of the monthly activities include animal handling experiences, it is not the primary focus of the program.  Students must attend 9 out of 12 meetings which will be held the third Saturday of each month from 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.  For an application, please contact the Greater Birmingham Humane Society at 780-7281.
