Seeking Curious Learners

Thank you for your interest in Mountain Academy!

At Mountain Academy of Teton Science Schools our admissions process is structured to assess the academic and social readiness of your student, as well as their curiosity and enthusiasm for learning.  We take many factors into account in order to make an admissions decision and do not rely on one metric to make decisions. In addition to this application, we require other supplemental components listed below.
Preschool and pre-kindergarten applicants will only submit a teacher evaluation if currently attending another school or daycare. Please Note: Preschool  and pre-kindergarten applicants are not eligible for tuition assistance.
Please complete the following application to apply for preschool through 12th grade at either the Jackson Campus or Teton Valley Campus. If you have any questions, contact admissions@tetonscience.org or call  307-733-3729.

YES! You Can.

Let us help your family make a Mountain Academy education possible!

The Tuition Assistance Program is designed to help families remove financial barriers to entry and pave a way forward towards an unmatched educational experience.

As a community, all families contribute toward the cost of a Mountain Academy education. While it is our belief that each family must place a top financial priority on their student’s education, we offer a Tuition Assistance program so that you can invest in your child’s education based on your family’s financial capabilities.
