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.

Tuscaloosa: Sara Rockarts

Tuscaloosa ~ Sara Rockarts

I'm Sara, mother of 4 - ages 11, 8, 6, and 3. We've been homeschooling all of them the whole time. I was homeschooled too! My husband is a public school art teacher, so we enjoy summers and holidays together, but we never stop learning. I do what I can to keep our family healthy with probiotics, homemade cleaners, whole foods, and essential oils. We used to have a small hobby farm before the April 2011 tornado. Now we're city folks, but still farmers at heart.

This is my first year to coordinate activities for Everest. I am looking forward to meeting like-minded people from all over the state.
