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.

Aug. - Dec. 2020, Online: Wallace Homeschool Dance Program

Wallace State Dance offering Dance for Home School program and on demand online classes this fall 
HANCEVILLE, ALA. –  The Wallace State Community College Dance program is offering classes for home schooled students in middle and high school so that they may improve their skills to pursue industry career options or further their education at college or university level. On demand online classes will also be offered this fall to anyone wishing to improve skills in dance, choreography, teaching and more. 

Ballet, Pointe and Jazz/Modern Dance classes in the Dance for Home School program will begin in August and continue through early December. The classes are for dancers at intermediate and advanced levels. The goal is to produce technically strong and artistically expressive dancers who are sought after for their professionalism and ability to easily adapt to the broad range of styles demanded of today’s dance professionals.  

Students who participate in Dance for Home School are not responsible for academic work related to dance classes. These students participate solely in movement-based exercises and therefore do not receive college credit for classes they attend.  

Selected students may also be asked to participate as Apprentice to Allegro Dance Theatre, the WSCC Dance Company.  

Classes will be held as scheduled: 
·         Classic Ballet, Monday and Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Aug. 24-Nov. 30 
·         Pointe, Tuesday and Thursday, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Aug. 25-Dec. 1 
·         Jazz, Tuesday and Thursday, 1 p.m. to 2:15 p.m., Aug. 25-Dec. 1 
·         Allegro Dance Theatre, Monday and Wednesday, 1 p.m. to 2:15 p.m., Aug. 24-Nov. 30 

Class fees are $125 each for Classic Ballet and Allegro Dance Theatre and $150 each for Pointe and Jazz.  

On demand online classes will be offered from September through November in the following subjects: 
·         Refresh Your Choreography 
·         Getting Students Pointe Shoe Ready 
·         Dance Pedagogy – Creative Teaching 
·         Ballet Class for Young Dancers 
·         Allegro Exercise Intermediate Students
