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.

DATE CHANGE!!! MAY 21, Pinson: End of the Year Party

Due to projected weather reports, this event has been changed to May 21!!!

May 21
End of the Year Party
Turkey Creek Nature Preserve
Noon - ???

Sponsored by Everest Academy but open to all homeschoolers!  Don't forget the teens!  

We will meet at the main swimming area called "the falls", located at the first large parking area you come to on the one-way entrance road. 

This is an awesome place to swim, hike, and picnic. Make sure to bring a float for the "natural slide". Also, the rocks in the swimming area are super slick, and it is recommended for everyone (especially kids) to wear old socks. The socks grip better than anything else we've found, even shoes specific for swimming/hiking in streams. There is a very shallow area for the littles to play in. 

Don't forget sunblock! The area has some shade, but the swimming area is very sunny. 

There is a small, flat open space at the swimming area for playing games as well as hiking trails for those who do not wish to swim. 

Turkey Creek is a great place for families, and we look forward to seeing you there!
