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.

May 5, 2022, Birmingham area: Alabama Homeschool Prom 2022

Alabama Homeschool Prom 2022

May 5, 2022
8-11 pm  (note the later start time, it gets darker later in May and this also allows the kids to eat before Prom starts)
Cost: $60 per person (pay at the door), cash or check (if check make out to Gabrella Manor)
Open to any Homeschooler 9th grade and up, and a date, the date does not have to be homeschooled.
Dress: Semi-Formal   Boys need a suit or sport coat, Many girls will be in a prom-type dress.
  Note: I trust the parents on the dress, if the parents are ok with the dress I think I can be ok with the dress as well.

Snacks and drinks provided, NOT DINNER. 

We have multiple Chaperones and everyone there who works at Gabrella is very familiar with our group by now and will have eyes open at all times.  We have paid guards in uniform from the Sheriff's Dept as well.  Any parent that feels they simply must come with their child must pay to get in and be dressed for the dance. 

We do allow parents to come in about 20 min before the dance to take photos and stay about 15 min after the dance begins, then we ask them to leave if they did not pay to stay...

Please put these on your school calendar, and help spread the word to your group. Feel free to invite any other homeschool kids you know of. Getting the word out is the hardest part of the whole thing really!

I hope to see a group of your kids there! These dances are so much fun.. we are lucky to have this venue.  The people who own Gabrella used to homeschool their niece in my homeschool group many years ago, and we have remained friends even though I no longer have a homeschool group (I gave it up when my youngest graduated) I have continued to host the dances because of my connection with Gabrella.
