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.

April 14 - June 15, Online: FREE Online Introductory Computer Programming Course

Hi,

I wanted to let you know that Vanderbilt University has created a free online introductory computer programming course that is a good fit for high school age children. The course uses the programming language called MATLAB that is widely used in many science, engineering, and other professional fields. It is also a recommended or required skill in colleges around the world in many majors. The course will be available in a couple weeks on the Coursera platform. Some of the students in your association might be interested in taking it. Here is the news release from Vanderbilt:
