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.

Director of Religious Education for Everest Family Church ~ Danielle Dowell

I began my young life in the Baptist churches of Kentucky and North Carolina. When I was 14, my family moved to Iowa and converted to the Quaker religion, with its basis in peace and equality, where I became very involved in teaching Sunday school and VBS throughout my teen years. After graduating from high school in Norcross, Georgia, I attended Berea College in Kentucky, where I studied psychology with an emphasis on child development and family therapy, as well as studies in eastern religion and philosophy. I completed a B.S. in Psychology at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA, with a special emphasis on studies in Christian life. I currently am raising two wonderful teen-aged children, and several hives of honey bees, in the town of Leeds. 

Danielle is also leader of the Everest Academy Cadette Girl Scout Troop:  http://www.alabamahomeschooling.com/2013/11/hoover-everest-academy-cadette-girl.html
