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.

The Scholar Club started in 2015. During our inaugural year, we visited a variety of businesses including the Kia plant, AmTech, Carmike Studios, Hampton Inn, CharterBank, and Publix. Plans for the coming year include visiting several small businesses, a manufacturing facility, and local professionals. We will also offer more than one college tour. We hold monthly meetings led by club officers (to be elected Sept 8) in addition to a tour or guest speaker most months (Sept-May). Additional career exploration resources are available for use outside of the meetings and tours. The club meetings will be held on the 2nd Thursday each month at a time and location to be determined following the organizational meeting.
