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.

Deadline Sept. 20, North Shelby High School Computer Animation Workshop (6 Weeks)

Hi Homeschool Parents, 

I am the Young Adult Librarian at North Shelby Library. This summer we won a highly competitive grant to offer 20 9th-12th graders a six-week workshop in basic computer animation. We have hired the instructor and the new computers are coming soon!

The North Shelby Library is offering a six-week computer animation workshop to 9th-12th graders sponsored by a Loleta D. Fyan Grant. The workshop will introduce students to the technology and software that the animation industry utilizes on a daily basis. The workshop will meet from 5-7pm on Monday nights for six weeks beginning October 21. Students chosen to participate are expected to attend all classes and make a 3-5 minute film as a final project. The workshop is limited to 20 participants.
