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.

Meet Team Everest!

Get to know Team Everest!
We're here for you!

As a statewide church school, Everest Academy strives to provide as many opportunities as possible throughout the state of Alabama. To help coordinate activities such as fieldtrips, co-ops/workshops/classes, social events, and more, Everest currently has a group of dedicated homeschooling moms known as Team Everest. The Team Everest ladies help plan activities throughout the state...and sometimes even out of state!

Highlights of past years include: Fun Friday events in Shoals, PARTIES! for holidays and beginning/ending of school year, Earth Day celebration, college tour series, and lots of social opportunities for homeschool children.

Please remember that the Team Everest ladies are Activity Coordinators and not part of administration. Please do not contact these ladies for issues concerning paperwork, transcripts, grading, etc. Also, please note that the location listed with each lady's name is the area in which she resides, but she may plan activities and make contacts anywhere in the state of Alabama…or out of state! Everest families are free to contact &/or attend events planned by any coordinator—not just the coordinator who is nearest them.

Vestavia: Homeschool Bowling League


My name is Angela and I am the Assistant Manager at Vestavia Bowl. We are going to try and start a Homeschool Bowling League this Fall on Thursday Afternoons at 1:30 pm. This will be a team based league with optional practice sessions on Wednesday afternoons. We will have certified coaches here to help teach the sport of bowling.

We will have 2 different options to choose from:
1) Roll 'N Grow - Bumper Division, Ages 7 & Below
2) USA Bowling - Team format with practice sessions

This will be a short season league with an Awards Party and Luncheon the very last week. We have had great success with our Youth Program on Saturday Mornings and hope we can have success with this as well.

We do have the information for the leagues on our website: http://www.vestaviabowl.com/League_Schedule_2.htm
(Click on "Homeschool Roll 'N Grow" & "Homeschool USA Bowling" for more information)

I hope this is something you will relay to those who are a part of your homeschool group. This is a great way for them to learn the sport of bowling as well as make life long friends.

Please let me know what you think. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you,
Angela Nance

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.
