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.

How can your students get involved?
To help bring the Clean Tech Competition to your country and schools, we ask that you share information about this opportunity with students, fellow educators, and parents. More official documents will be coming soon but now is the time to introduce them to the website and have them do a little research into past competitions. Our blog is a cache of information from a different angle as well and keep checking back for updates as they come.

2016 saw the largest competition ever and Clean Tech continues to grow! There were 392 teams from 19 different countries participated. Along with the 19 countries, the final round had four different nations represented and competing for first prize! And, we want students from Everest Academy in the Clean Tech Competition this year and in years to come!
