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.

Everest Academy offers three levels of graduating diplomas to our homeschoolers. Work may be done using whatever resources you deem the most appropriate as long as it is high-school level material.  Some avenues to explore are work studies, job shadowing, text books, Internet, correspondence studies, dual enrollment with a local college, and satellite.
