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.

Mondays - Thursdays, Bham: Homeschooling Rockclimbing Discount


~Note from Deb~ I have had some communications issues with this company.  The information below was updated 3/20/18.  Before driving a long distance, please contact them directly to make sure the discount is still in play.  

Birmingham Boulders (B2) Home School Program

Every Monday - Thursday (August - May) 11am-3pm

Birmingham Boulders is an expansion project of First Avenue Rocks that just opened in October of 2016. We designed B2 with kids, families and newcomers to climbing in mind, and it's a beautiful facility with bouldering, automatic belayed climbing, a fitness center, a lounge and free wifi. There is something for everyone to do at B2!

The home school package is the sweetest deal on the market.  Our current discount is $10 person and $1 rental harnesses. We encourage kids to wear closed toed shoes as rental shoes are still $3. That's half-price, and the offer applies to active home school students of any age! Parents are also invited to climb at standard rates, and If you guys love climbing, though, we also offer family memberships!


Check out the images below, find us at www.firstaverocks.com on Facebook and Instagram or call us anytime! Hope to see you soon! Cheers!  If you have any questions, feel free to contact our manager at taylor@firstaverocks.com and he can help you out.

This special pricing program has been arranged by Everest Academy, but is open to all homeschoolers. This is not a "meet up" event, it's just an opportune time frame for homeschoolers to attend.
