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.



The Community Education Department of Shelby County Schools will offer summer classes for public, private, and home-school students. This class is open to high-school students living in Alabama. Additional high school courses being offered will be posted on the March listserv announcements. Students can choose one or multiple classes. All classes are taught by certified teachers.
