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 & July, Bham: Girls in the Gardens

"Girls in the Gardens"

The Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama is teaming up with the Alabama Cooperative Extension and the Friends of the Birmingham Botanical Gardens to offer a great program for girls in grades four and up on Tuesday mornings from 9-11 in June and July.

"Girls in the Gardens" is a series of six educational programs including:
plant propagation
bugs, bees and beetles
butterflies
water quality chemistry
orienteering
tree and plant identification

There will be a take-home for each session, as well as a volunteer portion, providing benefit to the Birmingham Botanical Gardens by helping to pot seedlings, take butterfly counts, and verify the purity of the water.

The total fee for the six sessions is $25 per girl, which includes summer membership in Girl Scouts of USA. Space is limited and preregistration is required.
