  • Welcome to the TEACH Academy!

    We are excited to launch the Missoula TEACH Academy at the Jefferson Elementary building in fall 2024! This arts integrated elementary school will infuse drama, dance, creative writing, theater and more art forms throughout the day. Our MCPS teachers will employ highly engaging, knowledge building and movement-based curriculums that will keep our students engaged and excited about learning.

    TEACH Academy will also include the regular MCPS specialists and supports such as Music, Visual arts, and Health & PE and will provide the special education and wellness services available at all MCPS elementary schools. 

    What sets the TEACH Academy apart?

    The intentional focus on using the arts to foster higher levels of learning and student motivation. This is a unique opportunity for teachers, students, and families alike to grow their creativity together within this small school community. In the first year, students will be invited to choose a school mascot and school colors as well as form a student advisory council.

    In August, incoming parents and caregivers will be invited to form a TEACH Academy advisory council to ensure all school community members have a voice in this inclusive new school. 

    The TEACH Academy is free and open to all K-3 students and pending enough interest, it is possible that we will also open grades 4-5 this fall.

    Priority Registration is open now and spots are filling fast! Please visit the registration webpage for details.

    If you have questions, please reach out!
