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.

Dyslexia: FREE Dyslexia Services


Scottish Rites FREE Dyslexia Services - There are children with bright, intelligent minds who are failing 

because they have dyslexia. Casts and crutches are not in evidence, but the learning difference effects can be every bit as devastating as those of a physical challenge. An estimated 10 percent of the population has difficulty with symbols of written language, including reading, reading comprehension, writing and spelling. Without help to overcome this difference, these children will lose their self-esteem and ultimately fail to realize their full potential.  The Scottish Rite Foundation of Alabama Learning Centers offer a number of free services to children, families, teachers, schools, and Scottish Rite members.

Seniors: FAFSA


Please remember to file your FAFSA report as soon as possible after you receive your W-2 forms and fill out your income tax forms. The federal government uses this report to determine who qualifies for the billions of dollars available for college bound students. It is on a first-come-first serve basis.

Most colleges and universities often use FAFSA information to award financial aid. You should check with the school your senior wishes to attend for their FAFSA deadline. Make sure the financial aid office at the school has all the information needed to determine eligibility for aid. If your senior is eligible, the school’s financial aid office will send an award letter showing the amount and types of aid the school will offer your son/daughter.

To file your FAFSA, simply go to www.fafsa.gov . Using the Web is the fastest way to file. However, if you need a paper FAFSA, you can download a copy from this website and mail it in. If you have questions, please call 1-800-4-FED-AID. After you apply, you’ll receive a Student Aid Report (SAR). The SAR contains the information reported on your FAFSA and usually includes your Expected Family Contribution (EFC). The EFC is used to determine your eligibility for federal student aid.

The FAFSA is free. Never pay to fill out this form!
