    I, too, am trying to decide whether to choose Everest or Day Spring. I am very new to homeschooling. We are going to let our 14 year old son finish out the school year then move in with us and begin homeschooling then. I am also looking for advice on a curriculum. What are everyone's suggestions regarding this? Should I purchase one or use free resources? Also, how do I determine what the requirements are for him to get his diploma? HELP ME please! I have no idea what I'm doing.

    Just seeing this. We are with Dayspring. We went with them because we liked the hands off approach, no statement of faith, they are a "church" school in name only, and I knew the woman who started it. The message board and Admins are there for support. While folks around Alabama do get together and do field trips and stuff with Dayspring, Everest is a bigger group, and do more, more often. If you are living in the B'ham area Everest also posts events and trips open to all homeschoolers, so you can still get in on their stuff and not be members.
    If you are in the B'ham area there is SHE-BA (secular homeschool encouragement) on facebook. I know they do get togethers and field trips and stuff. Good luck.

    We are in the process of moving to Mobile from Virginia. Can anyone tell me which cover school is more likely to have activities near us? Thanks for anything you can tell me!
