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.

Registration Deadline July 27, Auburn: Science Investigations at AU

Science Investigations at Auburn University
Science Investigations provides a meaningful science lab experience for students in grades 7-10 who are homeschooled. The program, held at Auburn University’s main campus is designed to be a learning continuum throughout the school year. The program is comprised of a parent meeting and twelve academic sessions designed to build students’ scientific research and laboratory skills through the development of their own ‘science investigations’. Students will present their science investigation project at their regional, International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF‐affiliated fair), in the spring.
Unlike last year's program, this one will be limited to 12 participants in 7th-8th grades and 12 participants in 9th-10th grades. There is a selective application process which is open to all homeschoolers. The program is intended for students with a significant interest in science who are self-motivated learners and who have time outside of the program hours to commit to the development of their science fair project.
