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.

My name is Alyssa Jones, but my friends just call my Lys. I'm 13 years old and live in Daleville. I've been taking riding lessons since I was in second grade. I started in the Western style but after a year changed to English. I much prefer the more disciplined style that English provides. Last summer I wanted a new instructor cause I wasn't advancing as much as I knew I could, and my new instructor; Anna De Stephano in Ft. Rucker became my instructor. Within a couple months, I started practicing jumps.  I've always dreamed of jumping, and now I was starting to learn. Just two months of practicing and I earned a spot in my first show, and I won second place among 10 other girls. My instructor says I'm her star student. I've entered one more show since then, and then this weekend I will enter my third show. I'm super excited as I have become more proficient in my riding over the summer. I originally wanted to be a horse jockey, but when I hit ten, I realized I was too tall to be successful so now I'm leaning towards veterinary study with my main focus being on equine work. I volunteer a lot of my time to my riding instructor by cleaning/mucking stalls, grooming her horses, being her groomsman when she enters shows, helping train her horses, and very soon I will be helping her with lessons. If you've never ridden a horse, I highly recommend it. There's nothing like it in the world. It's also a great workout!
