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.

No Age Restrictions on Beekeeping!

Madeline Herring, 11-year-old daughter of board member, Chris Herring and his wife Bridget, has been working the bees alongside her parents and her siblings, Jacie and Jake, for over a year. This past spring, she decided to spend her birthday money to purchase her own bee hive from Hugh Feagle.  Working the hive on her own, building and wiring her own frames, making her own decisions about its management, Madeline achieved success when her hive produced 15 gallons of honey its first year! Way to go Madeline!
