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.





Homeschool Alabama is partnering with Crossroads Christian School in Moody AL to offer AP testing for homeschoolers. These exams will be given over two weeks in May: May 1-5 and May 8-12.


Your first choice for AP testing should be your local high school, so check with them to see if they offer the test you want to take, and make sure they are open to outside students coming into the school. Don’t wait to do this; ordering deadline is coming soon. If you cannot find a place to test close to your home, and you’re willing to drive to Moody AL (just east of Birmingham) for testing, then contact Debbie Landry (debbie@homeschoolalabama.org) who will put you in contact with AP coordinator at Crossroads. We are offering Exams Only, no AP classes. But we can offer almost any test you want to take. The testing schedule is set by College Board and can be accessed at the link below.




The cost per test is $135, which covers the cost of the test and a small administrative charge for the people who actually administer the tests. Your non-refundable $40 deposit per test is due into the Crossroads office by November 1, 2022, payable by cash or check. The remaining $95 is due into Crossroads office by April 1, 2023, payable by cash or check. Crossroads Christian School’s mailing and physical address is 825 Oak Blvd. Moody AL 35004.
