Mission and Vision

Mission Statement

The mission of Jackson Hole Classical Academy is to cultivate within its students the
wisdom and virtue necessary to discover their God-given potential and contribute to
a flourishing and free society.

Our Vision

As a school in the classical liberal arts tradition, the Academy believes that the
pursuit of truth always begins with a sense of wonder. Students can love to learn
what is true, good, and beautiful through a joyful discovery of the world around
them and their own expanding potential.

Academy teachers understand that education is not merely an accumulation of facts
or a memorization of what others have thought. Educating the heart and mind
includes fostering habits of thinking, feeling, judging, choosing, and acting for a
complete and virtuous life. Jackson Hole Classical Academy pursues this vision
within the historic Christian tradition that calls each person to love God and man.

Classical Liberal Arts

The liberal arts curriculum at JH Classical Academy is challenging and content-rich.
Our students study the core disciplines of mathematics, literature, history, science,
and Latin. Students also work through a structured physical education program to
develop the body in concert with the mind and soul. Students experience what is
beautiful by having the opportunity to practice the fine arts and performing arts of
music, drawing, painting, poetry, and drama.

Graduates of Jackson Hole Classical Academy are not merely well-prepared for
further studies but are well along the road to becoming citizens capable of
transmitting to the next generation the ideas and cultural foundations of Western
