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.

iServe Homeschool Service Club

This club has been discontinued due to lack of participation.  We will continue to organize volunteer opportunities and send out the info as planned.

iServe Homeschool Service Club is for homeschoolers in the Greater Birmingham and surrounding areas who are interested in cultivating a desire to volunteer and serve in their community.

We plan hands-on service opportunities for our homeschool students, which vary by locations, dates, times, etc., according to the service opportunity coordinated, but all events will be in the Greater Birmingham area or surrounding communities in Jefferson, Shelby, St Clair, and Blount counties. We strive to coordinate opportunities for all ages, 0-99, but occasionally there will be restrictions for the venue or type of volunteering needed. 

All event details and RSVPs are coordinated through a Facebook group requiring administrator approval to join. iServe members are welcome to plan events of interest & create events on the group, or they may simply share links for service opportunities that others may be interested in doing. 
Past events include clean-up and volunteer work at Turkey Creek & Ruffner Mtn Nature Preserves, delivering Valentines to Senior Citizens, volunteering at the Bham Zoo, Holiday Mail for Heroes, tornado relief efforts, Meals on Wheels delivery, animal shelter/rescue work, and collecting & packing supply backpacks for villages in Honduras.
While we encourage participation in as many events as possible, participation in every event is not required. Family participation is also highly encouraged, and no event will be set-up as a "drop-off" event (parents will be responsible for all participating children under 16 years of age or children without their own transportation).The iServe Club, sponsored by Everest Academy, is open to all homeschoolers regardless of cover, age, or religious affiliation and will follow the Everest Academy Participation Policy

You can request membership to the group by joining the iServe Homeschool Service Club group on Facebook. You must also send an email request to Jen Bohan at jenbohan77@gmail.com.  Any requests to join the group without prior contact will be deleted.
