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.

Hello Homeschool Families,
I appreciate the feedback I received from many of you regarding improvements to YOUR home school program at the Birmingham Zoo. I have revamped the program and am excited for the year to begin. There are some changes and I know that change can be challenging but it is all in an effort to make the program the best it can be in terms of the quality of programming we are providing for your child.
