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.

Oct 12 & 13, 2023 Orange Beach: Rise to the Challenge Conference by the Alabama Branch of the International Dyslexia Association

Alabama Branch of the International Dyslexia Association is having a two-day conference at the Orange Beach Event Center on October 12-13. For the first time, we are offering a special track for parents and a special track for students in grades 1-12. (Parents and students may, of course, attend any sessions they desire.) The cost for a family to register for the two-day event is $50. Here is a link to our event website and registration form which we would love to share with your members.

As a homeschooling parent of three boys (one with dyslexia) for the past 8 years, I know that many of us elect to homeschool our children because of unmet dyslexia challenges and the need to ensure that we equip our children to rise to those challenges. I so hope that families in your area who need this support will find our Rise to the Challenge Conference of great benefit. Please contact me as to how we might be able to partner with you to share information about other events and activities.
