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.

How Science Can Save You on a Desert Island

Are you now or do you plan to be stranded on a desert island? If so, come learn how science can help you not just survive but enjoy your time as a castaway. We will do some fun hands-on science experiments and then use those experiments as starting points for some imaginative writing that we will compile into a how-to guide for other prospective castaways. All participants will receive a copy of the how-to guide. - led by Lauren Michal
