"Every" is always followed by a singular verb. That's because we refer to every single item, and NOT to all of them combined.
Hi there,
 
So should you say "every student" or "every students"? 
 
Tricky one, isn't it? :-) 
 
Well, the rule is the following: 
"Every" is always followed by a singular verb.
 
That's because we refer to every single item, and NOT to all of them combined.
 
So the correct phrase is "every student."
 
Some more examples:
- Every students in the class must do the exam.
- Every student have has a teacher.
 
Here are some incorrect examples:
- Every words are important.
- Every moments are new.
- Every parent are present in the meeting. 
 
And these are the same sentences, corrected:
- Every word is important.
- Every moment is new.
- Every parent is present in the meeting.
