Our Program

Our non-traditional education environment emphasizes project-based learning, personal responsibility, and outstanding citizenship.

K–8 Program
Elementary students thrive in our multi-age, Montessori classrooms as they learn and grow both academically and socially. Transitioning into the upper grades, students build on their academic skills with project-based learning modules and a focus on character education. 

High School
Our two secondary programs prepare high school students for college and career success through either an in-person or online learning experience. Project-based learning modules help in-person students move from abstract educational concepts to real-world application while developing exceptional work-place behaviors. Our online students learn personal responsibility as they work independently through a curriculum that meets and/or exceeds Idaho graduation requirements.
