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.

Pinson ~  Jennifer Bohan

Hi! I'm Jennifer Bohan. My husband, Alex, and I have been together since high school. We have been married for 19 years this year. We have two awesome kids; Emma, 13, and Jason, 12. We also have a tortoise and a beautiful outside kitty that adopted us about 5 or 6 years ago. We have always homeschooled so it's just life for us, and I wouldn't trade it for anything! I love being with my kids, sharing and learning right along with them. We are a very active family and enjoy being outside exploring our world hands-on through hiking, biking, field trips, work shops, etc. Emma and Jason both take Karate which they enjoy very much. Emma loves all things art and science. She is really into computers these days and enjoys programming. If she's not working with her computer, she is sketching, writing, or reading something. Jason also enjoys computers and building things. He is our VERY energetic ninja. When he is not at the dojo, he is kicking, stretching or climbing up something and making my heart skip a beat! Never a dull moment around here. We also all share a love for the Asian Culture from the anime/manga, the movies, the food, to the art and history. 

This is my 3rd year as an activities coordinator and my 6th year with Everest. I really enjoy coordinating fun things for our kids and I am looking forward to another great year of adventures.
