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 church "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.

Foreign Exchange Program

I have several exchange students looking for host homes for next year!  Hosting a student is a great learning and cultural experience for your family, and a great compliment to homeschooling.  My family has thoroughly enjoyed our hosting experiences. 
I am looking for families willing to host a student for 6 weeks, a semester, or the full academic year.  Host homes need to be able to provide somewhere for the student to sleep (but they can share a room), a way to school (but they can ride the bus), and meals when you eat at home as a family.  The student comes with their own spending money and health insurance. 
I would love to answer any questions you have or send you some profiles to look at if your family is willing to consider opening your home to a student next year.  

Also, we are now accepting applications for your student who are interested in studying abroad.  We have a variety of programs from 4 weeks, 6 weeks, 3 months, a semester, or a full academic year.  Your student can choose the country they would like to visit, and there are no language requirements before they travel.  If you have a student aged 15-18 who might be interested, please contact me.

Thanks for your consideration!
