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.

Career Forward Course

Career Forward
The CareerForward course is a self-contained online learning course that may be used in companion with a variety of online career planning tools to provide students with the opportunity to assess their career interests, explore career options and create an educational development plan.

It is designed to help students understand how to plan their work lives and career opportunities amid the implications of the global economy.  This award-winning online course is a powerful way to help students wrestle with some of the burning questions about their future. CareerForward introduces students to globalization and career planning, and highlights how students can be more entrepreneurial as they look to the future.
