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.

St. Clair: Amanda Garrett

Amanda Garrett ~ St. Clair


Hello, my name is Amanda Garrett, and I am Everest Academy's Activity Coordinator for the St. Clair county area. I have two children; my son is 18 and my daughter is 14. We have been homeschooling on and off since 2010 and I have served as an Activity Coordinator for St. Clair once before. My son graduated early at the age of 17 and is now living on his own as he attends college. My other half does demolition for a living, and I am pursuing an opportunity to start a home-based business. We have many interests including camping, horseback riding, arts and crafts, and woodworking. Homeschooling has allowed my children the freedom to learn in a way that works for them.  It has also had a positive impact on their character. We have met several other families, who have become our friends via homeschool events over the years. I am excited to start organizing events for our community and have high hopes that we will make even more friends along the way.
