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.

Oct. 27, 2016 (Deadline Oct. 17) Falkville: Rock Quarry Field Trip


When: October 27, 2016 at 9:30 a.m.

Vulcan Materials
145 E Lacon Rd
Falkville, AL 35622


We will meet at the parking lot and Mr. Doster, the plant manager will come to greet us, we’ll see a short presentation on the quarry and he’ll answer questions and tell us more about the operations, equipment and the rocks that make up the layers in the quarry.

Then we will load into our cars and head into the quarry, passing machinery and getting a closer look at the layout. We’ll stop at a recently blasted area that has been deemed safe and stable and everyone will get to hunt for fossils and ask more questions.

The entire tour will last about 2 hours, everyone will need to wear close-toed shoes and you may want to bring wipes to clean hands afterward, the rocks can be dusty. Dress for getting dirty!

In the event of rain, we will reschedule.

This event is free, please RSVP with your family count and a phone number by Monday, October 17.

If you realize after making an RSVP that you will be unable to attend, please let me know as early as possible so those spots can be given to another family.
