  • Head of School Update: Wednesday, September 11

    There was a beautiful herd of elk resting in the corner of our property this morning as I drove into the school. This is such a beautiful place to build a school and work every day! We are so blessed to have more space, bright classrooms, and mountain views from every point on the land. Our week of firsts – first birthday books, first poetry recitation, first morning assembly, first Latin quiz, first day of rain with no gym, first sack lunch delivery, first sick child -- is over.  Everything went more smoothly than expected.

  • 10th Grade Presentations on "The Chemistry of Life"

    On Tuesday, April 23rd, Jackson Hole Classical Academy’s tenth grade students culminated their sophomore research project with a formal presentation to an audience of family, faculty, and students. The tenth-grade science curriculum is built upon the framework of understanding chemistry as the structure, composition, and behavior of the atoms and molecules which make up all of our natural world. In January, students were given the task of applying this knowledge by selecting a common item in their lives and researching the chemistry behind its composition, creation, and function. Pete Cook, Jacqueline Neishabouri, and Kim Ripley researched the chemistry of coffee, golf balls, and air-activated hand warmers, respectively.
