  • Head of School Update: Friday, June 14, 2019

    Dear JH Classical Academy Parents,
     
    In The Screwtape Letters, C.S. Lewis wrote, “Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point, which means the point of highest reality.” The challenges this year presented, of seeking approval for our new campus and securing an interim place to operate, provided all of us this testing point.

    In the first stanza of Rudyard Kipling’s poem, If, he advises his son:
     
    If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;
    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
    Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise…

  • 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.
