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.

Baldwin Co/Mobile: Jennifer Rogers


Jennifer Rogers 
Baldwin Co/Mobile 

Hello Everyone! I'm so excited to be a part of Everest and Activity Coordinator to the Baldwin/Mobile area. I have been married to my soul-mate and love of my life, Shane, for almost 12 years. I'm a full time wife and mom and also work as a RN from home for Children's of Alabama in Birmingham part time. We relocated to the Elberta (Perdido Beach) area of Baldwin county May 2011 after the April 2011 tornado outbreak that took our home. The move was supposed to be temporary but...we fell in love with the area and locals, so now we are here to stay. We have a small farm and raise free range chickens (all of which are named). We are self sustainable, organic growing, non-GMO, heirloom year round farmers. We absolutely love to harvest our fresh fruits and vegetables especially knowing from seed to table where it's been. 

On to homeschooling: I'm relatively new to it and this will be our second official year with a cover school. It's amazing how much I've learned in a year! We mostly unschooled last year but this year I'm going to see how scheduling some subjects regularly goes. My little ones were so hungry for knowledge last year we ended up devouring the curriculum we had on hand. I will still have a child led approach as we learn through living life everyday. I want to nurture their interests. In September of this year my son will be 7 and my daughter will be 4. We love the great outdoors, nature hikes, camping, four wheeler riding, raising livestock, swimming, boating, and farming. We also love trying new things, meeting new people, fun playdates, and field trips. I schedule activities on both sides of the bay so that Baldwin and Mobile families have an opportunity to participate while still being close to home. I look forward to meeting local families as well as those who travel through the area.

Thanks,
Jennifer Rogers
