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.

Relay for Life (Homeschool teens looking for other homeschool teens for Relay for Life Team)

Note from Deb~
Kelsie & Michael are both Everest Academy students.  We are VERY proud of them both.  This opportunity is open to all homeschoolers regardless of church school affiliation.  This is a GREAT community service opportunity.

Kelsie McGowan and Michael Vick started the organization Flowers For My Daddy in January 2014 after the loss of Kelsie's father to Lung cancer. Flowers For My Daddy makes flowers from duct tape. They have delivered the flowers to patients who are unable to have real flowers, nursing homes and the Hope Lodge which is a lodge for cancer patients. They began selling the flowers with the hope of raising money to be donated to the American Cancer Society. In May 2015, they participated in their first Relay For Life event in Moody, Alabama (Greater St. Clair County). They now both serve on the Relay For Life Committee as the Entertainment and Activities Coordinators in addition to being an official team with Flowers For My Daddy.

Their hope is to gain more involvement and support from their fellow teen home schoolers and their family members to help "Stick" It To Cancer.
