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.

Jefferson County: Teen Court Opportunity

Teen Court is a REAL court for first-time juvenile offenders who have been charged with non-violent misdemeanors. Defendants are represented and prosecuted by teen attorneys and go before a jury of their peers who decides how the defendant will be held accountable by rendering a sentence for the defendant. Sentencing includes mandatory service on the Teen Court jury and an oral apologize to parents/guardians. Additional sentences may include community service, finding employment, attending job skills training class, attending ASAP and/or adhering to a curfew.  

Teen volunteers serve as attorneys, clerks, bailiffs, and jurors. Volunteers receive community service hours for their service. For more information about the Teen Court program, click here.

To apply, teens must live or attend school in Jefferson County and be entering 8th – 12th grade.
