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.

Jasper: Barbie Wakefield


Hi! I’m Barbie Wakefield. I am one of the activity coordinator for the Jasper (Curry) area.

I married my high school sweetheart in 1990.
We have 2 grown sons and a younger daughter.  Our sons were homeschooled and have both graduated. Our daughter is currently homeschooled.
Our family enjoys the beach, fishing, camping, boating, and flying.
I am a retired Respiratory Therapist and enjoy spending time with family and friends. We love field trips, co-op classes, and meeting new friends. 
Homeschooling has been a big part of our lives for many years. It allows us to learn together and we are always learning!  We enjoy the freedom to teach, worship, learn and travel on our own schedule.
Our current favorite curriculum is the Good and The Beautiful. Their history curriculum is amazing. ❤️
I am looking forward to new adventures this school year!
