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.

New Birding Trail in North Alabama


Alabama has a new birding trail as of December 1-- the Appalachian Highlands Birding Trail. The nine counties that make up the trail are Blount, Calhoun, Cherokee, Cleburne, Etowah, Jefferson, St. Clair, Shelby and Talladega. Three years in development, the Appalachian Highlands Birding Trail features 38 approved sites covering an area of over 4 million acres. The trail will be marked with directional signs and there will be interpretative signs at many sites featuring an overall trail map and information on the types of birds most commonly spotted at that site. Visit the trail website for more detailed information about all of Alabama’s eight birding trails.
