At Everest, we aspire to a higher calling
At Everest, you’ll find a place that is grounded in, and genuinely embraces, the tenets and traditions of the Catholic faith. On our campus, the active presence of priests and consecrated women, and the daily opportunity to participate in the sacraments of Eucharist and Reconciliation, encourage your child to develop an active, personal relationship with Christ in order to discover their unique and personal mission.
We study to achieve our highest potential
We believe a rigorous approach to academics, including honors and AP classes, builds necessary critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication skills—helping our students reach their highest potential.
The only Preschool-12 School in Michigan with Cardinal Newman and Blue Ribbon Honors
The U.S. Department of Education recognized Everest as one of only 50 private schools in the country, and the only preschool-12th grade private school in Michigan, as a School of Excellence for its high performance levels.
We embrace our God-given talents
An Everest education extends to all aspects of a student’s life. We encourage the development of our students’ God-given talents outside the classroom through athletics, performing arts, clubs, and more. These extracurricular activities allow students to express integrity with their peers, and help them discover God’s calling in their lives.
We are always building community
Here, you’ll find a supportive, welcoming community that lifts up all children. Our school traditions and friendly families create an environment that supports you, the parent, as the first and most important educator of your child.
Lessons that last a lifetime
“Everest Academy welcomed our first four boys in the fall of 1997, the year we moved to Clarkston. At that time, the gymnasium and second floor of the current high school building were just being finished. Fast forward to today, we have had all nine of our children attend Everest with our youngest five children graduating from the high school. All our children have benefitted from the quality college-preparatory education and superior faith formation provided at Everest through the Integral Formation educational pedagogy. The faculty, staff, and religious community have gifted them with the tools needed to face today’s world with confidence and grace, and we are forever grateful.”
