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.

This is a COME AND GO AS YOU PLEASE event and does not require pre-paying, traveling, meeting or touring together.  PLEASE RSVP with number of adults and students planning to attend to Jamie Birath at fieldtripmoney@gmail.com, by April 28, 2019. The museum would like to know how many to plan supplies for for the free hands on crafts and activities.

This is a closed, multiple schools event to RSVPs only, I do have to turn numbers in to the museum by the end of the month. But it is a festival type atmosphere that everybody can come and go as they please as long as they have RSVP’d. We do not have to attend as one large group, that way everyone can enjoy the activities at their leisure. The festival is going on on Saturday for the same costs, but it is only available on Friday to schools that have set up RSVPs for their group. 

This is a WONDERFUL FREE event put on by the Museum Every Year
