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.

EARLYWORKS CHILDREN'S MUSEUM TOUR

Amazing Americans

Join us on this fun, educational guided tour of U.S. history! Through the many stations of this program your students will learn to read braille at our Helen Keller exhibit, dress up as presidents and explore the keelboat. Find out which president was a big game hunter, and which one got stuck in the bathtub by exploring the Hall of Presidents! Quiz games about our Amazing Americans mural will engage students to learn about famous Americans such as Patrick Henry and Thomas Jefferson. Best of all, throughout your trip your students can visit with historical interpreters. 


CONSTITUTION VILLAGE TOUR

Folklife Festival

Join us at Alabama Constitution Village, birthplace of Alabama, to celebrate Spring 19th-century style. The Village will be filled with activity taking your students back to a simpler time in our history. Students will witness the blacksmith as he stokes the fire and crafters doing their spinning and weaving. The hands-on craft area will encourage students to create folk crafts for themselves while using old-fashioned methods and techniques. Corn husk dolls, tin punching, thaumatropes, and dipping are a few of the crafts that you and your students might experience. Just as our forefathers did, students can try their hand at quill pen writing and block printing. Tap your feet to the live music flowing through the Village and take a whirl at the Virginia Reel. Sit a spell and listen to the storyteller and talk to historic characters from Alabama's past. Concession including slushies, popcorn, cookies, candy, soda, and much more will be available for purchase. Program length approximately 2 hours - free flow, tour at your own pace.

This event is open to all homeschoolers.  Please review the Everest Academy Participation Policy before attending any of our events.
