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.

The McWane Science Center Education Department is pleased to announce an all new format and new labs especially for Homeschool students. This year we’re holding mini-semesters in September and January. The labs will meet every Tuesday morning in September and January (except January 3). Each month will be themed, allowing students a more in-depth study on the science concept. All of the labs coincide with the Alabama Course of Study, College and Career Ready Standards.

McWane Science Center Home School Labs are designed to supplement what children are learning at home. Students are able to use equipment and take part in experiments that are not easily executed in the home classroom.  

Children must be at 4 years old by August 31 to attend Homeschool Labs

To register for the labs please contact McWane Science Center’s Reservations Department at 205-714-8414.
