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. 10, 2015 Bham: UAB Health Careers Explorer Post

Our Health Careers Explorer Post with UAB is having their kick-off Open House on Thursday, September 10th. Here is their invitation information:

The University of Alabama at Birmingham, in partnership with Boy Scouts of America, recently launched 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 Thursday, September 10, 2015 at 6:00 p.m., in the first floor conference room, 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 welcome to attend.  If you decide to join during our Open House, you may submit your registration fee of $24.00 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 sgambill@uabmc.edu or you can call Susan at 205-934-3186.  If you want more information about the Exploring Program, you can ask your school guidance counselor or go to our website at www.learningforlife.org and click on the Exploring Icon.

We hope to see you on September 10, 2015 at 6 pm.
