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.

May 15 - 20, 2017 Montgomery: CampSchool (High School Science Labs)

I am happy to announce that registration is now open for CampSchool to be held May 15-20. We will have 3 days of high school/early college science labs (choose from biology, chemistry, &/or physics labs) on campus at Auburn University Montgomery on Tue/Wed/Thur followed by a day of outdoor adventure at Camp Chandler (Wetumpka) on Fri and the Global Village Overnight experience at SIFAT (near Lineville) on Fri-Sat.

A variety of programming for adults will take place during the lab times, and a pass to the AUM Wellness Center is available for ages 16+. This is a great opportunity to spend some time on a small college campus and meet other homeschooling families from Alabama and beyond. 

It is expected that a parent will attend with their student(s) unless other arrangements are made with me. 

There are a variety of options for CampSchool with the the bare bones, labs only price is $75/student (total for the 3-day program) if you provide all of your own meals & lodging. The most expensive being $335/student ($315/adult) for everything (programs, labs, meals, lodging, camp, SIFAT) from dinner Monday-lunch Saturday. Campus housing is apartment-style with private bedrooms & full kitchens. Friday night is a campout at SIFAT. The registration form outlines all of the pricing options.

Early bird registration is at a discount from those prices, but lasts for one week only & ends on Friday, 3/10, at midnight. Paying the $25 per person registration fee by Friday guarantees you the lower pricing even if you pay the rest later. I'll accept any reasonable payment plan. The deadline to register & get the t-shirt is 4/21. Final payment is due by May 8. I prefer PayPal (instructions on the form; you can pay with a credit card for a 3% fee), but I will accept a Money Order or a Cashier Check via mail or cash if you see me.
