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.

Desert Island Supply Company also known as DISCO, located in Woodlawn is offering free after-school tutoring for students. 

DISCO is a creative writing center located at 5500 1st Avenue North in Woodlawn. It features a comfortable, safe writing environment with cleverly decorated maps, items, and pictures to ignite creativity for all ages.

DISCO also offers free workshops, seminars, and programs to area schools and community events to encourage creative writing and literacy advancement. 

Recently students from around the metro area enjoyed spending the day with Carla Jean Whitley, writer and managing editor of Birmingham Magazine. She is also the creator of Birmingham Box Set, a blog focused on Birmingham's music scene. Whitley introduced the participants to music reviews and taught them how to listen to music then form their own unique evaluation and critical thinking of different musical styles and songs.

Two students, Anniston Bates and Sydney Scarpulla, enjoy learning how to write music reviews from Carla Jean Whitley, Managing Editor of Birmingham Magazine.
