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.

Alex McAnnally

Hi, my name is Alex McAnnally. I'm 18 years old, and I'm a senior in high school.  I've been homeschooling for 6 years now, and this is sadly my last year homeschooling.  It's been quite a journey, I must say. I plan to attend Beville State Community College when I graduate to study for my 4yr. Nursing Degree and then transfer to UAB to work towards a Master's Degree and studying to be a Nurse Practitioner. I'll probobaly be a traveling Nurse for a few years; although, I just don't know when yet. 

I've been playing the piano for 2yrs, and I play in the Youth Group at my church; Victory Christian Fellowship.  I've recently included playing the Keytar in my range of musical playingness. I took Yoshukai Karate, of which I'm currently on hiatus, but I made it to 4 Kyu rank. I have also earned the rank of Eagle Scout in Boy Scouting. 

The one thing I love about homeschooling, especially this year, is I can go back on what I've already done, like Algebra 2 or AP Biology for example, and re-take the course without a lot of hassle and go through it at my own pace or go over the parts I didn't quite understand or just sped through too fast.
