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.

ACT & SAT Testing


Testing Requirements

Virtually all colleges and universities require students to take either the ACT or the SAT I Reasoning Test; however, specific testing requirements vary from college to college.  It is important that you are aware of the testing requirements for all the schools that you are considering.  Contact each college or visit their web sites to be sure that you know what is required and when.

Many colleges require students to have all scores sent directly from the testing agency, and you must request that your scores be sent to the colleges of your choice. 

When  Should I Take  the ACT and /or SAT?

You can take a pre-ACT as early as the 8th grade.  See information below.  
  • The EXPLORE® program is designed to help 8th and 9th graders explore a broad range of options for their future. EXPLORE prepares students not only for their high school coursework, but for their post–high school choices as well. It marks an important beginning for a student's future academic and career success.
  • PLAN Test - The PLAN is the pre-ACT, which students may take as sophomores in the Fall.  It gives an indication of how students may perform on the ACT, as well as offering a career interest inventory.  
  • Juniors should take the ACT or SAT I in the fall.  You can take the test as many times as you would like; however, fees do apply.  Make plans to retake the one on which you do better during the Fall of your senior year.  Most colleges will take the highest score.

How Do I Register?
