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.

For twelve years Friends of the Locust Fork River has sponsored this environmental education opportunity for Blount County children in grades three to six. Held at King's Bend on the banks of the beautiful Locust Fork river, it’s gotten bigger and better every time – with more activity stations, more children and parents, more learning, and more fun. Certified canoe instruction, get-wet ecology, snakes, are just a few of the highlights. There will be fun and learning for children and adults. Partners in providing environmental activities include Birmingham Canoe Club, Alabama River Alliance, McDowell Environmental Center, and more.
