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.

Register online here:  https://www.alabamawildlife.org/homeschool-programs/.  Please indicate in the comments box if your child wants to be in the same or different group as a sibling or friend that is the same age.  We highly recommend that your child be with children their same age.  It helps the program run smoother and the activities are planned based on different ages.
