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.

Shoals Area: Darla Hicks

Shoals Area - Darla Hicks

My name is Darla Hicks, and I am the new activity coordinator for the Shoals Area for the 2013-2014 school year. This is our fourth year as a homeschooling family. I have two sons ages 12 and 7. I also serve as a Den Leader in our local Cub Scout Pack.

We have some exciting things planned for this year! I am looking forward to meeting new friends and seeing old ones!

To help stay informed and keep track of all the upcoming events please join our Facebook group.
