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.

Greystone: Tiger Rock Martial Arts

Tiger-Rock Martial Arts at Greystone would like to share with you some new programs that would benefit the health and safety of both you and your home-schooled student.

Greystone offers programs for all age groups that focus on the two components of personal safety:
  • education (the how and why things go wrong and the tools to identify those circumstances) and
  • physical training (the hands-on training that enables you to deal with those situations, if they arise). 
Possessing these tools not only builds confidence in everyday living, contributes to positive self-esteem, and increases your sense of awareness, but also relieves the stress associated with challenges we confront daily.

These programs include:
  • Know & Go® is specifically designed for children ages 5-12. This course is a fun-filled non-threatening way to empower children to avoid common situations they may encounter. Know & Go® teaches children to create a window of opportunity to escape from potential abduction, one of the highest risks for children in this age group.
  • Bullyguard® is designed to teach children what to expect from bullies and how to deal with the situation in a non-aggressive way. This program complies with no-fight policies, teaches safe zones and safe people to handle bullying situations, and builds confidence by showing children why it is cool to “Just Walk Away.”
  • TeenSafe™ is designed specifically for teenagers and the broad spectrum of personal safety issues that they may encounter as get older. This program instructs teens how to me more aware of surroundings; how to identify and deal with intimidation and verbally or physically threatening behavior; and empowers teens by teaching how to deal with a situation if it did go bad.
  • Training for Life® is the personal protection course based on self -escape techniques for men and women of all ages. The course is tailored to everyday people and shows self-escape techniques to create a window of opportunity, uses body mechanics we in daily life (i.e. clapping hands, turning a key, knocking on a door, etc.), and teaches scanning patterns to help avoid a bad situation.

If you are interested in any of these courses for your student(s), I would be happy to meet with you to discuss adding one or a combination of these seminars to your homeschool curriculum.  Please contact me at Greystone at 205-981-7777 or via email at greystonetkd@bellsouth.net.
