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.

2021 Leadership Initiatives Summer Internship Programs

 

Nominate an outstanding student to hold an internship with a real law firm, launch a business in the developing world, develop a research project with leading neuroscientists, fight terrorism with a security firm, or diagnose a patient using VR technology.
For more than 15 years, Leadership Initiatives has partnered with outstanding high school students to gain real-world experience, explore future careers, and develop critical skills to create the next generation of leaders worldwide. Unlike other summer programs, we do not provide simulations; our interns gain real-world experience for their resume and build their ability to collaborate, communicate, and confidently pursue their futures.
Leadership Initiatives has endorsements from the Microsoft Youthspark Program, the Starbucks Foundation, the International Youth Foundation, GlobalGiving, TestRocker, and the Future First Foundation.
