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.

Some of the movies deal with more than one culture. Some deal with important historical, demographical, and human events such as immigration, exile, spirituality, unemployment, intolerance, precarity, military violence, solitude, and tolerance around the world and humor.

  • Spanish Lessons - My name is Onna Sweatman. I'm the Spanish and Latin American Studies teacher at The Arlington School.  I teach all levels of Spanish and have an open schedule so I can work around summer camps, vacations, etc. when planning the course. I can teach Spanish to all ages and depending on the intensity and length of the course cost is quite manageable. If you know of any parents interested in Spanish classes for their student please let me know. You can email me here at onsweatm@bsc.edu or onnanicholefrances@gmail.com or call me at 205-335-7871.
