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.

Make College Happen Challenge

Welcome to Plan for CollegeSM and the Make College Happen ChallengeSM!
brought to you by Sallie Mae®
As a parent and homeschool teacher, do you agree that thinking about college can be overwhelming? The Make College Happen Challenge, brought to you by Sallie Mae in partnership with By Kids For Kids, Co. (BKFK), a nationally renowned educational and family marketing company that connects teachers, students, and households with innovative marketing, corporate social responsibility programs and national competitions, launches October 15 and runs through December 15. The Challenge gives teens ages 14-18 some motivation to think ahead. They're asked to creatively describe how they plan to pay for college with a poem, video, photo, song, or essay.
A Little Motivation:
  • 1st place: $10,000
  • 2nd place: $5,000
  • 3rd place: $2,500
  • (7) finalists: $1,000
The Challenge is part of Plan for College, an online resource providing free step-by-step tools to help demystify the often-overwhelming college planning process. Knowing where to start and what to do next makes getting where you're going much easier. Get started with the Challenge and Plan for College today! See Official Rules.
