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.

Auburn Art Exposure Program

Art Exposure is a monthly art program that was developed several years ago especially for homeschoolers.  The program allows students the opportunity to interact with many aspects of art, from history to artists to artistic styles & techniques to creating art.  There are 3 age groups to help meet the needs of each age of student.  To accommodate larger families, the program allows some overlap in the age groups with the intention of a younger sibling attending with an older sibling’s group if needed. The Kindergarten level was just added last fall.  This is really the youngest age for this program; please don’t ask to enroll your PK student under the age of 5.  All classes meet the week of the 2nd Tuesday.  Please note that this is sometimes the 3rd Thursday for the youngest group.  

Students in 6th grade and up may be dropped off for the program.  Younger students (K-5th) must have an adult in the building at each session. 

To register, please contact Nancy Melkerson at nmelk3@hotmail.com with your name & phone, the names, grades/ages of your student(s), and which age group(s) you need.

Registration deadline is August 12 or when classes meet capacity (which generally happens quickly).
