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.

Dalton Spradlin: Driver's Edge Best Performance/Best Driver

September 12
Dalton Spradlin
Best Performance/Best Driver Award

Dalton Spradlin, Everest Academy Senior, attended the Driver's Edge intensive defensive driving program on September 12, 2010 in Birmingham, Alabama.  This is a national program taught by professional race car drivers that travels the country teaching about driver safety and defensive driving skills and making it's first-time-ever stop in Alabama on September 11 & 12, 2010.  The program is a combination of pre-test, classwork, demonstrations, lectures from State troopers, hands-on driving skills and post-test.  There are two different driving skills practices; skid exercise (hydroplaning) and vehicle avoidance (swerving several lanes to avoid another vehicle pulling out in front of you).  In Dalton's session, I would guess that there were approximately 200 students, with four sessions over the weekend for a total of around 800 - 1,000 student drivers.  Dalton was awarded a trophy for Best Performance/Best Driver for the weekend and also given 2 VIP tickets to the Indy 500.  Congratulations Dalton!
