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.

24th Annual National Solar Home Tour

October 3 - October 4

Blount County in Alabama is the state’s Solar Home Capital. There are, at minimum, 11 solar homes in the county and that number is growing. See 5 of these solar homes (a standard home retrofitted for solar, an underground home, a straw bale home, a dodeca-yurt home, and a clerestory home), a variety of garden styles and numerous ways you can weave energy efficiency, sustainability, resilient community and permaculture into your own situation. The tour involves walking, though three homes are wheelchair accessible and for those requiring it, can be accessed by vehicle.
Registration is required for everyone attending tour, as space is limited.  E-mail or phone to register.
Cost: Free
Time: 9:00 AM – 4 PM either day
