Everest Academy


Leaders are Made

At Everest, every student is viewed as a potential leader. Our environment offers students the opportunity to learn more about themselves, develop their personal vision, nurture strong friendships and build key personal skills that will serve them for a lifetime. The Everest faculty leads by example. Our high standards and strong belief in nurturing the whole child create a unique environment that fosters individual growth and personal leadership.

Character Matters

Character development is a key component of the Everest S.E.L.F. platform. Throughout the school year, students are given the opportunity to focus on various aspects of character development such as Integrity, Cooperation, Community, and Work Ethic to name a few.

Our nurturing yet challenging environment allow students to grow into their own persons as they cultivate strong friendships, learn from mentors and teachers, and gain a positive and inclusive outlook on life and their place in the world.

A Strong Foundation

The K-12 foundation years are critical. They play a key role in a child’s development and will decide what level that child will attain in anything they pursue, including sports. Through our S.E.L.F. platform, Everest is unique in providing all four pillars of development during those most critical foundational years. Our teachers, coaches and directors understand the important role and influence they have on our students. They are committed to guiding each student in the right direction; helping them develop good habits while building a strong foundation. Everest students become independent, confident, and engaged leaders. Excellence happens every day at Everest.

“Everest instills confidence and belief that they can rise to the challenge and that nothing is beyond their reach.”
