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.

2019/2020 New AP Homeschool Resources

As many veteran homeschool educators know, AP courses and exams are a great way to save money on college courses and to demonstrate academic excellence to competitive colleges. The College Board wants to make sure all students—regardless of whether they go to public, private, or home schools—have the opportunity to take AP® courses and exams. Beginning August 1, 2019, homeschool educators will have access to the new AP Classroom, a suite of free resources that includes unit guides, personal progress checks, and a progress dashboard. 

The College Board is making one other key change: instead of registering for the AP exams in the spring, the registration deadline will be November 15, 2019. After piloting fall registration in the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 school years, the College Board noticed that student participation increased—and so did their average scores! Once the “crutch” of opting to take the test in the Spring was taken away, students were more engaged.
