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.

125 CASH PRIZES for students, totaling $15,500!

Help your students earn LOTS of great prizes by entering them in Stossel in the Classroom's essay contest, for students aged 12-18! And we have super prizes for teachers, too!

ESSAY TOPIC: In his Fox News hour, War on the Little Guy, John Stossel takes a critical look at how regulations have unintended consequences. Stossel covers small regulations, like those that govern magicians' rabbits, and larger ones that restrict whether businesses are allowed to operate. Choose a regulation and, using evidence, build a compelling case as to whether the regulation is good or bad.

Please write a 500-1000 word essay on this topic. You must include at least one reference from Stossel's War on the Little Guy TV special or Stossel's recent book, No They Can't

 125 students will receive CASH PRIZES totaling $15,500.

 1st and 2nd place students will also win an all-expense-paid trip to New York City for themselves, a chaperone, and the teachers who submitted their essays to see a live taping of STOSSEL.

 Teachers whose students receive at least an honorable mention will receive an autographed copy of one of John Stossel's best-selling books.

 Each teacher may submit an unlimited number of student essays (500-1000 words) on our web site between now and the Feb. 17th deadline.
