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.

Teen Driving Tips


Teen Driving Tips


  • Many auto insurance companies give discounts for good grades--usually As and Bs. Check with your company to see if you qualify.
  • Some insurance companies also give discounts for taking either their driver training program--or other driver education programs. 
  • If you have a choice, put the new teen driver as the primary driver or family driver on the oldest and least costly vehicle. This will save you on the rates.
  • Before buying a new or used car, check with insurance company to see what the rate will be for the teen. Sports cars and other expensive cars may have higher rates. So know what you're getting into before you buy. At the link in the box below, you can get rates from a number of companies to compare.
  • Also check the crash safety rating and average repair cost for any car you might buy--that will impact the insurance rating, too.
  • If getting new insurance, check the rates at a number of companies--you can click on the ads below and search many companies for the best rates and services.
  • Keep a disposable camera in your car in case you're in an accident to record the damage to all cars and the actual placement of the cars--But be sure and get out of the traffic when you (or someone else) is taking the picture. You don't want to be hit while documenting the accident.
  • If you're involved in a minor crash, you might want to have it fixed without reporting it to the company. For a teenager, having an accident--even a minor one--may cause your rates to increase (maybe even more than the cost of repairing the minor damage.)
