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.

PROGRAM ACTIVITIES
Aquatic Life Roundup – Students will explore the myriad of life that is supported by a pond by using nets to sample for animals that live there.  Students will discover how animals adapt to
aquatic life and how their survival is related to water quality.
What is a Wetland? – Students will learn how streams and natural springs contribute to the creation of wetlands, and how wetlands function as part of the water cycle, including their ability to filter groundwater.
Stream Walk – A hike in Still Creek will spark discussion about how humans contribute to the overall  health  of  our  waterways, including  man’s  effects  on  water  quality,  erosion  and pollution. Students will see firsthand what happens to precipitation when it reaches the earth’s surface by tracing water’s journey from its source as a natural spring to its destination in a stream.
