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.

Homeschooler: Blake Griffin

Blake Griffin
Homeschooled until high school, Blake Griffin grew up playing basketball with his older brother, Taylor, and followed him to the University of Oklahoma where the brothers led the Sooners to the Elite Eight of the 2009 Men’s NCAA Basketball Tournament. Blake was select no. 1 overall in the 2009 NBA Draft, selected by the Los Angeles Lakers, while Taylor was selected 48th overall by the Phoenix Suns. Blake Griffin is often described as “a man among boys”  for his massive size and awesome athleticism. His dunks are already legendary. Griffin, who’s mom is white and dad is black, considers being biracial an asset, allowing him see the world from both sides of the racial divide and giving him a broader sense of perspective.
