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 2016 Theme: Biomimicry - Borrowing Nature's Designs

Part 1:Better Solar through Natural Inspirations 

We'll discover how living organisms will mimic each other in order to survive, and humans mimic nature to be more effective in our daily lives. Students will delve into the world of solar power and examine how using the design of the sunflower and mimicking a fly's eye can help us to more efficiently gather solar energy.
