Welcome to A+ Academy: Academics Plus the Arts!

A kindergarten and first grade program. 

The structure of daily activities are carefully planned to encourage independence, self-confidence, and cooperation through large group, small group and one on one participation in a variety of hands-on, interactive experiences. The activities will incorporate skills in dance, art, music, and tumbling. The instruction will cover reading, mathematics, writing, science, social studies, fine/gross motor skills, social/emotional skills and language development. We strive to promote an environment that is joyful yet challenging while enhancing your child's growth and education.

Tuition & Rates

The annual tuition is $2400.00 per student. After you have enrolled your student in Matsu Central or Twindly Bridge Homeschool programs, A+ Academy can direct bill $2000.00 from your homeschool program. This leaves $400.00 for the year to be paid out of pocket by the parent/guardian. You may pay in full or choose monthly installments of $50.00.  Parents or guardians can also choose to pay the full tuition out of pocket instead of billing homeschool if they prefer to do so. 

Lisa Townsend

Hello! I am so excited to have the opportunity to teach at A+ Academy again this year! I taught school for 12 years (8 years in Wyoming and 4 out in Bristol Bay), before taking time off to be a mom. My kids are now 10 and 7, and I have been substitute teaching at their school over the past couple of years, but this is the perfect opportunity for me to get back into my own classroom! I can't wait! I graduated from Montana State University with a Bachelor's degree in education, and a few years later completed my Masters degree in curriculum and instruction: literacy. I come from a family of educators. My dad was my high school English teacher, my mom taught special education and I even married a teacher (my husband teaches at Colony High School)! Teaching is a challenging career but I cant imagine one more rewarding or fun!
