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.

Writers’ Club/Self Publishing Q&A – rescheduled!!!
Our next get together at CLC for writers has been rescheduled.  Sorry, but my family may not be back in town from a soccer tournament in time to do it on June 20.  So we will be meeting on Tuesday, June 28 instead.  Official time is from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.  Plan to come for any portion of that time that works for you.  Bring your laptops, your latest project and idea(s), or just your questions.

The idea is to encourage each other, ask questions, get feedback, etc. If we meet once a month (or so) it will give us deadlines to aim for, for our next goals, and we all know how important deadlines are! (I know I make them and move them on a regular basis!)

If you’ve missed the first Self-Publishing Workshops, feel free to still join us. We’ll all try to get you caught up on any of the general publishing information you’ve missed.

As usual, an email letting me know you’re planning to attend would be great, so that we know how many folks to expect!

Reminder - Upcoming Used Book Sales at CLC
The rest of the summer Used Books scheduled for Thursday, June 23, Monday July 18, and Monday, August 22. Set up is between 6 and 6:30, and the official selling time is from 7 to 9 p.m.  Please share this information with other homeschoolers, parents, and teachers you know – since with these sales, it is definitely a case of “the more the merrier”.  Please contact us at cmmjaime@alum.mit.edu or 256-325-3305 if you would like to reserve a table.  You will be manning your own table, and making your own sales.  So bring change, etc.  (There is a $5/table cost to participate in these sales as a “seller”, which you may pay that evening.)
Reminder – most of the links on our website are affiliate links – which means if you are going to shop on Amazon, Vision Forum, CurrClick, or Answers in Genesis – if you go through our website, we get credit for sending you there.  This is an easy way for you to help us pay the bills at CLC.  Speaking of which, 2011 is continuing to be a difficult year for us financially, even into June, which is quite unusual.  We appreciate the recent donations of books, those are a big help to us.  And we are looking for ideas/suggestions on how we might be able to shrink the gap between money coming in and money going out in expenses (rent, electric, phone, etc.).
Don’t forget CLC when you are looking for summer reading and activities, in addition to next year’s curriculum (or non-curriculum) options.
