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.

June, Bham: Teen Poetry Workshop

Homewood Library Will Host Teen Poetry Workshop Starting May 24
Starting Saturday, May 24, the free teen poetry workshop that is usually held at the downtown Birmingham Public Library, will be held at the Homewood Public Library until the Birmingham location's air conditioning unit can be fixed. The East Building of the Birmingham location reduced its hours to close at 12:00 noon. The move was necessary because of rising temperatures and a broken unit. As a result, the teen poetry workshop had to be moved. Homewood graciously agreed to host the event until repairs can be made.

The teen workshop will be held every Saturday from 2-4 p.m. It is free and open to all middle school and high school age teens. The Homewood Public Library is located at 1721 Oxmoor Road in Homewood. Real Life Poets, a non-profit creative writing organization, partners with the Birmingham Public Library to offer the workshop.Occasionally the workshop may be cancelled due to conflicts with other events. Contact John Paul Taylor of RLP to confirm the workshop is being held; the e-mail is johnpaul@reallifepoets.org and telephone is 205-585-8271.

The teen poetry workshop will return to the Birmingham location after repairs are made. Parts have been ordered for the air conditioner, and repairs will be scheduled once parts arrive.

This workshop is funded by a grant from the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
