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 27
Cheaha State Park-Alabama
2141 Bunker Loop
Delta, Alabama 36258

Cops on Top Info:
Every year people across the US climb to their state's highest point and take a photo with a banner to honor officers in their state who have fallen in the line of duty in the past year.

Alabama has never had anyone to represent our state, so for the past 2 years, we have gone as a family with the banner to participate in honor of a friend in Arizona who has been an officer for 20 years and our own son, who wants to serve as an officer when he's older. 

We will meet at the tower at the state park at 11 and let's have a picnic lunch together and anyone interested can play on the playground or climb on the rocks. We will do the photo around noon to give everyone a chance to get there.

Afterward, we can walk to Bald Rock and enjoy the views, then anyone interested can join us for a hike and swim at Devil's Den Falls that afternoon.

My husband will place a phone call that evening (the reception at the park is awful) and read the list of fallen officers for the recording that goes on the website. More info here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cops-on-Top/336565374329

I hope we can get lots of folks this year! Let's not turn this into any type of police-bashing forum, I know there are people who don't like the government and the past year actions taken by some officers have stirred ill will. If you want to join us for the day but don't want to be in the support photo, simply stand aside when we pull out the banner for the shot. Start at 11 a.m. 19644 Hwy 281 Delta, AL 36258 (Cheaha State Park) $3 per person state park entry fee.
