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.

June & July, GA: Federal Service Language Academy

Dear Friends of the UNG Federal Service Language Academy,
The University of North Georgia (UNG) will host the fifth summer language academy for high school rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors in June and July 2015.  The Federal Service Language Academy (FSLA) is a three-week residential program for students who are interested in an immersive intensive language experience, fitness, and exploring international-related careers with the federal government.  Last year 130 students from over 32 US states and three foreign countries successfully completed the FSLA. 

During the two three-week sessions, students will be immersed in intensive language instruction in First-Year Arabic, Chinese, Russian, German, Korean, Portuguese or Second-Year Arabic, Chinese, Russian, German, Korean, and Portuguese from highly qualified teachers, participate in a daily fitness program, receive career counseling from federal agency representatives (possible agencies include the CIA, DEA, FBI, State Department, Homeland Security, the Peace Corps and US Armed Forces), and possibly receive high school credit for successful completion of the academy. 

We are also pleased to announce the addition of FSLA Berlin 2015, a three-week (July 05-24) language immersion experience in the German capital. This program will feature intensive language instruction, cultural excursions, and home stay arrangements with German families.  This is a Dual Enrollment program with both high school and university German credit.  Accepted students must be admitted to UNG.  Please see the FSLA website for further details. 

Please forward this information to any high school teachers, counselors, or administrators in your contacts who may be interested in passing this information to their students and/or may be interested in an employment opportunity at the UNG Federal Service Language Academy.
