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.


In the event that you choose to withdraw from Everest Academy, please be aware of the following information:

Transcripts - Your student may need a transcript to give to the new school. If so, please find the information for requesting a transcript here.

Frequently Asked Questions: 
  • Can my child return to a school setting after homeschooling? In most cases, yes. The new school will probably require a copy of a transcript for the work completed at Everest Academy. Please see information below.
  • Will the new school test my child for grade placement? Maybe. You will want to check with the new school to see what they are requiring. It is possible that the new school may want a transcript, samples of work, lists of curriculum, testing, etc. It is completely up to the new school what they may require and what they will accept.
  • Standardized Testing - If you are putting your child in a private or public school, the parent/guardian may consider administering a CAT (California Achievement Test). The CAT is a standardized test for grades k-12. Here is a link for the CAT : http://www.setontesting.com/cat/
  • It is up to each parent to research requirements and regulations of other schools including public schools, private schools, church schools, and colleges when considering enrollment in these institutions.
  • Past School Records & Immunization Forms: Everest Academy does not hold any past school records. If the school before Everest sent in any records, they have already been forwarded to you.
