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.

A note about Michael from his mom, Jeannie~
This is Michael's first year at college.  He was homeschooled for kindergarten and then went to public school for 1-7th grades.  We were told in 2004 that our house was no longer in the county but in the city, so we started homeschooling first with Heritage Christian, then Metro Family Christian, and then Everest Academy.  Michael's story started long ago when we started trying to have Michael 10 years before he was ever conceived.  He has a sister that is 10 years older than him.  We prayed for him so long before he came.  Everyone in our church knew to pray for us to be blessed with a baby.  A year and a half before he was conceived, an angel came to me in a dream and said, "This is Michael. The LORD just wants you to know he IS coming."  The little boy in the dream looked about 2 years old and had blond curly hair (Michael is the only child we ever had with curly hair).  Michael has always been very focused on pleasing THE LORD.  He reads his Bible first thing every morning and has been praying protection over his future wife since about age 10.  In the last year, he has lost 96lbs.  He is very disciplined.  His room is organized (even his Nintendo games are in alphabetical order).  He wants to go into marriage and family counseling and be a Pastor.
