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.

Peinhardt Living History farm is primarily a family farm focusing on rural life in the 1930’s and 1940’s. The mission is to promote agricultural, historical and conservation education. Peinhardt is host to the Cullman Fiber Guild (4th Saturday), a Blacksmithing Forge (1st Sunday), and Basket Study Group (4th Sunday).
