Our Culture

The Jackson Hole Classical Academy school model features a core liberal arts curriculum with a common and rigorous sequence of courses for all students; an academy ethos that strives to foster friendship marked by a common love of the true, the good, and the beautiful; small class sizes that guarantee the availability for individual attention, both academic and personal; a professionally diverse and uniquely qualified faculty; visible leadership who mentor and collaborate with teachers; and an involved parent community who are invited to embrace and participate in the school’s academic and ethical vision.

Being a Christian school, our faculty comes to us from both Catholic and Protestant backgrounds. The unifying doctrinal statement for our faculty is the Nicene Creed.  We are not affiliated with any specific church or denomination.

All of this cannot happen without first filling our schools with teachers who are themselves intellectually, aesthetically, and morally alive. A school is its faculty. The faculty at Jackson Hole Classical Academy builds a culture where young hearts and minds can flourish; where students are protected from the noise of popular culture and freed to pursue the highest and most enduring things.

We need men and women who long to participate in the renewal of education and, through it, the renewal of American culture. We hope you will consider gifting your time and your talent to this exciting and worthy cause.
