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.

Cindy and I have been homeschooling since 1991. We have 13 children and all have been homeschooled. Most of all, we are believers in Jesus Christ and you can check out our statement of faith on our website.

What is salt? Salt is what we Christians are supposed to be in the world: distinctive, loving, and pure. Our Christian faith should impact every part of our life and our life should impact our families first and then the world. SALT then, is about encouraging and inspiring Christians in living their faith.

SALT Magazine contains articles meant to uplift, inspire and even challenge the believer. It addresses many topics including family, marriage, quiverfull-related, education and politics. While we pray SALT may be a blessing to everyone who reads it, we also believe we who are teaching our children at home, allowing God to determine the size of our families, and who pursue a way of finding a spouse that protects and promotes the purity of our children, need to be encouraged as we travel the path less traveled. We hope it fulfills this purpose as well.
