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.

Aug. 30, 2016 (Deadline Aug. 19) Auburn: FREE Senior Portraits Opportunity

The Auburn Aperture Photography Club is inviting homeschoolers to be their subjects at a hands-on workshop for their members to learn more about portrait photography & lighting. This is a fantastic opportunity to get some retouched digital images of your student at no cost. Students must be available on Tuesday, August 30, from 6:30pm to 8:30pm for the indoor portrait session. They may bring a change of clothing &/or a prop they would like to have in their portrait (e.g., guitar, baton, sports ball, etc). Note: Students must be patient as multiple photographers practice their craft. This opportunity is open to homeschooled teens in the area with priority given to seniors & recent graduates.

Bring a flash drive labeled with your last name & phone number. It may be returned that night, or it may be returned later after the images can be sorted & edited.

In addition, seniors will be invited to an outdoor photo shoot in the area on Sunday, Oct 2, (rain date, Sun, Oct 9) at 4:00pm.

Reservations are required & location information will be given when you register. Contact Nancy Melkerson at nmelk3@hotmail.com for more info or to register for either opportunity.

Registration Deadline: Friday, August 19
