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.

Nov. 30, Pinson: Nature Hike

Southeastern Outings Sunday Stroll in Jefferson Co.

Nov. 30, 1:30 p.m. | You are invited to participate in an easy, fun Southeastern Outings Sunday dayhike in the woodlands near Birmingham on the Sunday after Thanksgiving. The walk will be in the proposed new Shepherd Addition to the Turkey Creek Nature Preserve near Pinson. The hike will include new areas to be added to the Preserve within the next few months. It is a spectacularly diverse, forested property with streams, small canyons, hills and a great variety of wildlife. Southeastern Outings member David Shepherd and family are in the process of conveying this new addition to Forever Wild, the agency which currently owns the Turkey Creek Nature Preserve. Depart promptly at 1:30 p.m. from the Turkey Creek Nature Preserve oval, upper parking lot on the north side of The Narrows Road about 1.4 miles west of the intersection of AL 79, AL 151 and The Narrows Road in Pinson. To begin our walk we will walk across The Narrows Road from the oval parking lot to the Shepherd Addition. Total walking distance may be about 4 miles. Rated moderate. Well-behaved, carefully supervised children age 7 and older able to walk 4 miles welcome. Share an adventure. Bring a friend or friends.
