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.

Nov. 18, 2015 Bham: Three Sisters' Garden & Corn Husk Dolls

~Please contact North Shelby Library for more information. 

Homeschool Hangout: November 18

Growing Three Sisters’ Garden
Just in time for the Harvest Season, we are so happy to have North Shelby Library’s very own Carol Hagood, Children’s Library Assistant, Jefferson County Master Gardener, and Birmingham Botanical Garden’s 2013 Educator of the Year. Her program will share information about Native American gardening practices, particularly The Three Sisters Garden, an early form of companion planting which is popular today. Carol will also lend her voice and talented hand to share Cherokee legends, and demonstrate traditional Native American corn husk doll making. A longtime corn husk doll collector, Carol will be sharing some of her collection with our students. Homeschoolers will go home with their own corn husk doll and have the opportunity to craft clothing for their dolls.
