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.

Homeschool Hangout: Birds and Beak Adaptations
Wednesday, March 16th @ 1pm
March is ‘in like a raptor and out like a song bird’ with a visit from the Birmingham Audubon Society and Teacher Naturalist Helena Uber-Wamble. Ms. Uber-Wamble will be presenting Birds and Beak Adaptations.  Homeschoolers will discover what birds eat by examining the shape of the bill. While rotating through interactive stations, students will determine how the beak is used in gathering food. Students will then be able to determine what a bird eats while examining several bird skulls.  Ages 8-12.  Registration is required.

We hope that you and your families will be able to attend some of our very special spring programs at the North Shelby Library!
