    Dear JH Classical Academy Parents,

She represented JHCA and spelled alongside students from across the state, and it lasted 13 rounds--the longest in Wyoming state history! 

    The following week, 8th Grade Cotter Friess competed in the State Geography Bee. He was one of two representatives from Jackson and about 45 students statewide.

    Good Job Paschall and Cotter representing the Jackson Hole Classical Academy!

In addition to monthly parent training sessions, curriculum night, term presentation, concerts, and science and history projects, the parent book club provides another way for parents to engage in their children’s education and experience the richness of a classical curriculum.
