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.

March 18 & 19, 2016 Pell City: Home School Tennis Tournament


My name is Sarah Stewart and I am the Tennis Pro in Pell City. I was contacted this week about hosting a Homeschool tennis tournament for as many groups/teams as we can get to sign up. Right now, we have 3 teams committed to our 2016 tournament, and I would love for your group to participate in this fun event.

The dates of our tournament are March 18 & 19 (Friday and Saturday). We will only play on that Friday if the tournament is really big. The main play date will  be Saturday, March 19. The tournament will be held at the Pell City Tennis Center (beside the Pell City Civic Center).

Since this is our first year hosting a tournament like this, we will make allowances for those Homeschool groups that cannot field a full boys team and a full girls team.In standard high school tennis matches, each team has at least 6 boys and 6 girls on their respective teams. Since this is our first Homeschool tournament, and also the first time many of these kids have played an organized tennis match, each Homeschool group has a boys team and a girls team with as many players  as they can find who will commit to play in our team tournament. We will also work with each team to make sure the level of play is appropriate( example: beginner players competing against beginner player, etc.),

I can assure you this will be a worthwhile tournament for your group to participate in. Our number one goal when working/teaching kids in school and also sports should be to challenge them to achieve goals they never thought they could reach, and to achieve these goals with camaraderie, class, humbleness, enthusiasm, and the  desire to improve themselves.

Please feel free to email me back or call me if you have any questions, or need help putting a team together.
I look forward to hearing from you.
