Learning is in our nature
Bringing Education to Life for Students in Early Childhood through 12th Grade
If you’re ready to experience joy in learning within an engaging environment. Mountain Academy is the place for you.
Mountain Academy of Teton Science Schools provides an exceptional education that engages all aspects of the individual child. At Mountain Academy, we challenge students to think critically about the world around them.
The school’s two campuses — in Jackson, Wyoming and Teton Valley, Idaho — operate using a unified learning model to expand learning opportunities for all students. Students engage in diverse and dynamic learning experiences across the two campuses and in the world beyond the Tetons through day-long or week-long Journeys. Mountain Academy is committed to enriching the lives of children, nurturing life-long learners, and positively impacting our communities.
Teton Valley Campus
Mountain Academy of Teton Science Schools uses place-based education to connect learning to communities through three foundations:
- Academic Engagement
- Character Development
- Community Focus
Place-based education increases student engagement, boosts learning outcomes, impacts communities, and promotes understanding of the world around us.
“The ability to learn how to critically think, work as a team, collaborate with people, and interact with stakeholders is something that’s really critical in today’s educational environment. When we send our kids off to school we know they are learning these skills.”
