Mountain Academy

Bringing Education to Life for Students in Early Childhood through 12th Grade

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.
