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.

State Wide: Girls State

Girls State is a unique summer program whose purpose is to educate the young women of America in the fundamental aspects of citizenship. It is a laboratory of practical government - a personal application of the duties, responsibilities and privileges of American citizenship. Through this laboratory approach, students experience the processes of government by performing the duties of real office-holders in every day work.

Selection as a delegate to Girls State is one of the highest honors conferred on a high school student. Young women who are selected to participate in Girls State have the opportunity to develop a deep understanding of the workings of government, to strive for and to assume leadership roles, and to realize that their action can make a difference in their community.  Perhaps the greatest hope for the future of our community, state and federal governments is that people will be inspired to participate and to lead because they believe deeply in the responsibilities of citizenship. The Girls State program was formulated with these principles in mind - to offer young women the opportunity to not only study the workings of government, but to be actively involved in governmental procedures. Through this involvement, students develop an appreciation for what citizenship truly means.
