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.

2022, Alabaster: Back Lot Drum Battery Homeschool Marching Music Ensemble

We are a homeschool-focused marching music ensemble located in the Alabaster area.  We are gearing up for next year's marching season. We have quite a large drumline.  In fact, it is arguably bigger than many public school drumlines in the state.  We are looking for students interested in playing drums/percussion as well as participating in the Colorguard and horn line.  If you have a student that’s interested in marching in a cool marching band with other cool homeschool students then let us know.  We also need students that have interests in Colorguard, brass or wind instruments, and even technology/sound.  No experience is necessary and the cost is kept at a minimum. Not only is it fun. But it teaches leadership and commitment.  And for college-bound students, there are scholarship opportunities out there in the music.
