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.

Deadline April 15, 2019: Calli Wilson Memorial Scholarship (for homeschoolers only)

PLEASE HELP US SHARE THIS SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITY WITH HOMESCHOOLERS from Marshall, Morgan, Limestone, Madison, Lawrence, Jackson, or Cullman Counties. Please share the information with your cover schools.

**The Calli Wilson Memorial Scholarship Fund**

The Calli Wilson Memorial Scholarship Fund was set up to honor the memory of a beloved young lady who lost her life in November of 2016, early in her Senior year of high school. Our goal is to encourage North Alabama Homeschool youth to pursue post secondary education in a public or nonpublic university, college, or vocational/technical college. The Foundation will award a $500 Scholarship to one North Alabama high school graduate.

The Calli Wilson Memorial Scholarship can be used to directly reimburse tuition, room and board, books, technology, and fees for post secondary education. The Calli Wilson Fund will make the scholarship grants directly to the post secondary institution which the scholarship recipient attends.

Who Is Eligible:
Applicants for the 2019 scholarship must have been homeschooled students who graduated in Spring of 2017-2019 and are enrolled or intend to enroll in a post secondary institution for the fall 2019 semester. The educational institution may be a public or private university, college, or vocational/technical college. Applicants must be a resident of Marshall, Morgan, Limestone, Madison, Lawrence, Jackson, or Cullman Counties.

Selection Criteria:
Students will submit a resume outlining their leadership, citizenship, school, church/community involvement, and academic achievements including GPA. Please include current contact information on the resume.

In addition, students will submit a 300-500 word essay sharing about themselves, their plans for the future, and how homeschooling prepared them for those plans.

Each student must submit a letter of recommendation from a non-family member. It can be from a community member, teacher, pastor, or family friend.

All information will need to be received by CrossRoads Christian Academy by April 15, 2019.

A panel from the CrossRoads Christian Academy board will evaluate the criteria listed above. The recipient will be notified, and the results will be posted on the CrossRoads Christian Academy Facebook Page by April 30, 20019.
