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.

The Cook Museum of Natural Science is a state-of-the-art natural science museum in downtown Decatur, AL.

Students can enjoy a deep dive into animals of the Arctic Desert, climb to the top of “Big Tree”, explore the life-like cave, and more!
