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.

Spring 2022 (Deadline March 31, 2022): Shelton State Community College Scholarship Opportunity





Tuscaloosa, Alabama – Shelton State Community College is offering new scholarships for students pursuing careers in fields considered gender nontraditional.  Applications will be accepted through March 31. 


Applicants must complete the Perkins Scholarship application, the College’s admission application (if not already admitted or enrolled) and must plan to enroll in a gender nontraditional program of study.    


The term “gender nontraditional” refers to occupations or areas of work, including careers in computer science, technology, and other emerging high skill occupations in which individuals from one gender comprise less than 25 percent of the individuals employed in that occupation or field. Female nontraditional careers are occupations in which less than 25 percent of individuals employed are female.  Male nontraditional careers are occupations in which less than 25 percent of the individuals employed are male. 


Many current and former Shelton State Community College students have found enrolling in a nontraditional gender program to be a rewarding and life-changing experience.  To hear from several of these students, as well as College administrators, visit Shelton Statements - Gender Nontraditional


The scholarship eligible programs of study are viewable by gender on the Shelton State Perkins Scholarship application.  To view the gender nontraditional scholarship eligible programs and to apply for the scholarship, visit Shelton State Perkins Scholarship or sheltonstate.edu.


A vital member of the Alabama Community College System, Shelton State Community College is committed to creating new opportunities for West Alabama.  “With a renewed focus on meeting the needs of its customers, the College offers innovative solutions and an enhanced approach to customized education, training, and community impact,” states President Brad Newman.  “Collectively, we will be excellent in each!”
