Discover Our Campuses

Jackson Campus

The Mountain Academy Jackson Campus is situated on 900 acres on the main campus of Teton Science Schools. The school is nestled in Coyote Canyon, providing ample opportunities for students to use the outdoors as a classroom. Students on the Jackson Campus start each morning with a quarter-mile walk up the canyon to their classrooms and spend a significant part of the day outside.

Teton Valley Campus

The Mountain Academy Teton Valley Campus is located just a few blocks from Main Street in downtown Victor, Idaho. The 10-acre campus includes houses for different grade levels, outdoor space, a library yurt, and space for the farm and garden program. Students spend a significant amount of time outside in the play yard, which is specifically designed for open-ended play.

Complete Your Application

A student’s application provides the admissions committee with a holistic view of each individual applicant, from their interests, learning styles, and personalities. The Mountain Academy community thrives when it welcomes and nurtures families that will support and fully embrace the school’s mission and values. Through the application process, our hope is to help identify students who are best suited for our program. The application consists of a Family Interview – an opportunity for your family to have a conversation with members of the admissions committee as well as faculty – and a Student Interview and Visit Day – a chance for students to learn about us and for the team to learn about your child.

It’s time to submit your application!

Once your application has been received, the Admissions Team will connect you with the next steps.
