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.


~Note from Deb~  This info is FYI only.  Everest does not have a robotics team.  If you are interested in starting one, I would be happy to advertise for you.  

Dear Fellow Homeschoolers,

As a homeschool parent I have really appreciated the values and opportunities my children have received through participation in FIRST Robotics, not only in technical areas, but in various business areas as well. In six weeks we built a 120-pound robot to play Frisbee and climb a 8-foot pyramid!

Team Higher Voltage would like to invite you to attend a FIRST Robotics Competition regional event in your area. See http://www.usfirst.org/whats-going-on to find the dates and locations near you.

Even though there are 2000 high school FRC teams worldwide, our homeschool team won an invitation to attend the 2012 World Championship Competition. There are FIRST teams for students ages 6-18. We have created two short videos about FIRST: one highlighting our team FRC Team Higher Voltage Video and another featuring the Career Exploration Opportunities available through FIRST. Career Exploration Through FIRST Video

We hope you enjoy learning about FIRST Robotics!
