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.

April 25, 2017 (Deadline April 22) Natural Bridge Field Trip

Tuesday, April 25, 2017
2:00 p.m. 

Come join us for a tour of beautiful Natural Bridge Park!

Billed as the longest natural bridge east of the Rocky Mountains in North America, the Natural Bridge formation is 60 ft (18.3 m) high, 148 feet (45 m) long, and composed of sandstone and iron ore.  The park also features 27 varieties of fern and hemlocks dating back to the Ice Age. 

Downhill from the natural bridge is a mysterious carving of an Indian head, similar to that on the buffalo nickel. Despite some guesses that the carving depicts a chief from the area, almost nothing is known about who created the relief, when, or for what purpose. It is true, however, that Native Americans had been dwelling in the area and underneath the natural bridge for hundreds of years.

Admission is $2.50 for children 6-12 and $3.50 for adults. There is a picnic area and gift shop. 

Here is the link with directions (Note: Follow the map to Natural Bridge Park):

Deadline to RSVP is Saturday, April 22.  Please RSVP via email to reames.jacquelyn@gmail.com and put "Natural Bridge" in your subject.

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