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.

Homeschool Swap Boxes

~Note from Deb~ This info is fyi only. I don't have any prior knowledge of this person or group. I just thought some of you might be interested. 

Hi Ms. Spradlin-

I just started a Yahoo group called, Homeschool Swap Box https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/HomeschoolSwapBoxes/info .

The idea is for homeschoolers to collect items from their hometown/city/state/country and send them to other homeschoolers. It’s a fun and great way to learn History, Geography, Social Studies and more.

Most of us have been using the **free** priority boxes from the US Post Office. They cost $5.80 to send anywhere in the U.S. and Internationally. (There is a weight limit for international mailing, I think.)

Some of the items that are sent are:
~postcards
~pencils
~menus
~tour brochures
~maps
~transit schedules
~programs
~newspapers
~paper placemats
~magnets
~drawings/paintings
~pictures
~small crafts
Let your imagination be your guide.

******PLEASE* note: We were created from families from the Secular Homeschooler list. We are inclusive but would appreciate it if there were NO overtly religious or faith based items in the swap boxes. Thank you!*****

Would you kindly forward this information to your membership? It would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
