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.

Do your students love the outdoors? 

Do you have students who want to pursue a natural resource-based career like forestry or wildlife sciences? The Alabama Nature Center is inviting high school junior and senior students to come out and have a day like no other. The Natural Resources Expo will allow students opportunities to speak with natural resource professionals, participate in hands-on experiences in the field, and get a taste of all the natural resource career opportunities that await them.
