  • 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.

    You might see a band of Jackson Hole Classical Academy t-shirts along the bike path after school. That's the middle school running club. Mrs. Walter and Mr. Sawyer have been coaching a stalwart band of students on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Practices run about an hour and include warm ups, endurance and tempo runs, stretching, and core workouts.

  • Spanish Class at Jackson Hole Classical Academy

    Spanish I: Introduction of the Modern Language Track

    “Donde hay gana, hay maña” is a well-known proverb in the Spanish-speaking community. It most closely resembles the English saying: where there’s a will, there’s a way. To Mr. Gildersleeve, this proverb is particularly befitting for language acquisition. “To learn a language – to truly gain fluency,” he asserts, “it’s important you learn to love the language, first.”

    Mr. Gildersleeve, new to JH Classical Academy this year, teaches Spanish I to the 11th grade. In Spanish I, students learn the foundations of
    speaking, listening, and writing in Spanish. They’re encouraged, too, to embrace Spanish’s direct application in the world around them.
