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.

Sep. 25 & 26, 2017: University of Southern Mississippi Southern Invitational Choral Conference

SICC Invitation: Everest Academy

Hello Deb

My name is Lauren Clark, and I’m representing the University of Southern Mississippi’s Choral Activities department.  On behalf of Dr. Fuller, we’d like to invite you and your students to the Southern Invitational Choral Conference on September 25-26, 2017.

SICC is open to any student who is at least 14 years of age, and has musicianship skills, choral singing experience, and a strong work ethic.  Students will take part in intense rehearsals and high quality performances, meeting fellow musicians from all over the Southeast. There is no preparation necessary; all music and materials will be provided at the conference.

Additional elements unique to our conference include an opportunity for students to audition for choral scholarships at Southern Miss.  Information can be found online.

Teachers may also attend, and can earn continuing education units (CEUs) by attending various sessions. 

We’ve recently added an option for homeschool students to attend our conference independently of a school or outside organization; a chaperone must accompany said student.  If you have any student who is interested and qualified, they may attend SICC independently, regardless of voice part.

If you and any of the students affiliated with your association are interested in attending, they may access information on our website, here.  There is a link to register for the conference, as well as a link to a digital copy of this year's brochure.  Additional information on our clinicians, area hotels, and general conference information can be found there.

We sincerely hope to see some of your students in September!

Thank you

Lauren Clark
