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.

May 25 & June 20, Blountsville: Two FREE Events on the Locust Fork River

Hello River Lovers!
Here's your reminder of our always-popular Memorial Hike to Corneilus Falls and the first call for our award-winning Day on the River.


Memorial Hike to Cornelius Falls
Saturday, May 25th

This is a moderate-difficulty hour-long hike along the Locust Fork River to the Cornelius Falls. Some folks like to go slow and talk wildflowers. Other folks scoot ahead to get in more playtime at the falls. We'll eat our brown bag lunches on the sunny rocks at the falls. It's a great time of year to play in the falls, so bring wading shoes and swimwear if you like.
To carpool from Birmingham, meet at 8:30 am at JJ's BBQ (used to be Golden Rule) on Highway 79 (call Stephen for details on the carpool). Rendezvous at Tonka Shell Station (Hwys 79 & 160) in Cleveland at 9:30 am. We'll leave the cars at Martha & Stephen's at 10:00 am and return about 2:30 pm.
No reservation needed, but for more information, contact Stephen Guesman at friends@flfr.org or 205-919-6231.
