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.

Dance Your Dreams! is a dance class specially designed by Merrimack Hall's dance faculty, in consult with physical therapists, for children with gross motor developmental delays. Classes are offered weekly following the city school's calendar and include numerous performance opportunities for participants. Each student is paired with a trained volunteer who helps the children execute the movements which their challenges prevent them from being able to execute without assistance. Students in this program have multiple diagnosis including Cerebral Palsy, Down syndrome, cancer, hearing impairment, language delays and learning disabilities. Everything is provided to these students at no cost to them, including dance attire and costuming for performances. 

This unique program was designed to provide performing arts education to children who would otherwise not be able to participate due to their personal physical challenges. We are proud to announce the expansion of Dance Your Dreams! for the 09-10 year. We will now offer four classes, open to up to 8 children each.
