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. 29, 2015 Bham: ACIPCO Explorer Open House (Ages 15 and up)

Our Engineering Explorer Post with ACIPCO is having their first meeting next Tuesday, September 29th, at 6:30 p.m. They had their Open House on September 15th, but we received a lot of phone calls and emails that indicated there were many interested young people who had conflicts that night and couldn’t attend. Please let your students know that they can come to the first meeting and jump right in without having missed anything.

ACIPCO is located at 1501 31st Avenue North Birmingham 35207. For more information, students can contact Hunter Bridwell at hbridwell@american-usa.com. Thanks for letting your students know about this great Explorer Post!

Here is the information for the kick-off Open House at ACIPCO. It is set for next Tuesday, September 15th. Sorry for the short notice, but we just received the information today. I know that this Post has been particularly popular with home school students, so we really want to make sure we get the word out.


Students, Teachers and Administrators:

I hope this letter finds you enjoying a new school year. We will be kicking off another year of the ACIPCO Engineering Explorers Program on Tuesday, September 15th, at 6:30 pm. The program will last until approximately 8:00 pm. Please see some of the highlights of our program listed below. At the kickoff meeting, we will have further details about the remaining meeting schedule.

The goal of our program is to seek out students interested in engineering as a career and to expose them to various disciplines of engineering. It is our hope that this helps students make decisions about future college and career plans.

 Meetings are typically held every other Tuesday evening, mostly on the property of AMERICAN Cast Iron Pipe Company (1501 31st Avenue North, Birmingham, AL 35207).
 We feature many guest speakers discussing various disciplines of engineering.
 There will be various hands on activities for students including some competitions.
 Prizes are offered to registered students. Students earn tickets for participation in the program and for winning competitions. Tickets can then be entered into drawings for prizes, which include a chance to participate in the University of Alabama’s SITE Program and two scholarships for graduating high school seniors ($500 each)

Our first meeting will be called Foundry in a Box. Students will learn about and get the opportunity to make small castings with melted metal. Many further details will be provided at the first meeting. Registration forms will be provided at the meeting. Registration is $25 for a semester or $40 for the entire school year (please come and check out the first meeting without any pressure to register). Snacks and drinks will be provided.

We hope to see many of you there. Parents and teachers are also encouraged to attend to witness what our program has to offer.  Should you have any questions or need additional information, please feel free to contact me at hbridwell@american-usa.com or (205) 307-2961.
