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.

Sep. 19, 2017 Bham: UAB Health Careers Explorer Post

For those not familiar with Exploring, it is open to young men and women ages 15-21 (they can be 14 if already in 9th grade).

UAB Health Careers Post

The University of Alabama at Birmingham, in partnership with Boy Scouts of America, is proud to sponsor Health Career Exploring Post 7978.  Health Career Exploring is a program for young people who are interested in learning more about careers in healthcare.  Explorers learn about diverse careers available in the health care arena and interact with leadership from all areas of the hospital such as physicians, nursing technologists, and administration.  There will be opportunity to participate in hand-on activities and to learn about the educational requirements for a variety of health related careers.

You are invited to attend our Open House at UAB Highlands Hospital on Tuesday, September 19, 2017 at 6:00 p.m., in the first floor media center, to learn what healthcare Exploring has to offer and to learn how you can join this group.  A map is attached to help you locate UAB Highlands and to help you know where you go when you arrive.  You are welcome to bring a friend, and your parents are also welcome to attend.  If you decide to join during our Open House, you may submit your registration fee of $40.00 at that time.

We will meet each month through May, on the second Thursday of each month, at 6 p.m. at UAB Highlands Hospital.

You can help better prepare for our Open House by letting us know if you plan to attend.  You can reply to us by email at sonjajordan@uabmc.edu or you can call Sonja Jordan at 205-996-4132.  If you want more information about the Exploring Program, you can ask your school guidance counselor or go to our website atwww.exploring.org and click on the Exploring Icon.

We hope to see you on September 19, 2017 at 6 pm!
