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.

Jasper: Sherry Morrow

Sherry Morrow ~ Jasper

Hi, I’m Sherry Morrow & I am the Activity Coordinator for the Jasper area.  I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart, Dennis, for 18 years. We have always home educated our children. We have a 17-yr-old son-Dakota, a 14-yr- old son-Dalton, an 11-yr-old daughter-Mary Kathryn, a 4-yr-old daughter-Sarah Beth, & a 9-month-old baby girl-Ella Rose. Life is busy at the Morrow house! We are actively involved in our parish, St. Patrick Catholic Church in Adamsville. I am a work-at-home mom, a pediatric telephone triage nurse for Children’s of Alabama.

We currently practice life-long learning, others may call it interest-focused learning, child-led learning or even unschooling, whatever you choose to call it, for our family, it works! Over the years we have tried different educational methods, everything from Charlotte Mason to Classical, boxed curriculum to eclectic, lapbooking to computer-based, & we have learned from them all. In this season of our lives, we are accepting & loving that we are learning everyday in the context of real-life.

We have learned a great deal about Dyslexia over the years, as 2 of our 3 oldest children have been diagnosed. They have made amazing progress with the proper learning opportunities they have been given. I am passionate about helping families find the resources that are a proper fit for them.

We have raised chickens for years, including hatching our own from an incubator. We have had varied successes with gardening & preserving our own food, it’s a work in progress. We survived an EF-4 tornado in April 2011, that destroyed much of our town & it changed our family & our mission statement! We are always on the lookout for ways to serve others. We like activities that we can do with our entire family. We enjoy camping, fishing, hunting, foraging for edible & medicinal herbs & weeds, bowling, Archery, blacksmithing, range-shooting, swimming, soccer, cooking, baking, chess, board games, card games, great books, great movies & field trips.

We would love to have you join us for the fun activities we have planned this year. I look forward to meeting new families & making new friends.
