About Us

Montana Hybrid Academy is comprised of teachers, facilitators, mentors, and subject matter experts that are passionate about creating an interactive learning environment focused on the development of the whole child. Our trademarked curriculum is designed to facilitate critical thinking, work-life balance, self-advocation, and problem-solving skills.  

Things that set Montana Hybrid Academy apart from the rest. 

  • No homework 

    • We don't assign busy work. Our students are given ample time during the day to complete their work, and we offer drop-in sessions with our teachers, so our students can have their questions answered by their teachers. Parents don't need to relearn Algebra II or Macroeconomics. We want our students to be active members of their families and community. Unnecessary homework inhibits their ability to participate in what matters most to them. ​

  • Edu-Scrum teaching style

    • MHA's teachers and facilitators go through our Edu-Scrum teacher training. Teaching in an Edu-Scrum style allows our students to learn in an agile environment where their interests and input are considered.

  • Technology for learning

    • MHA students have remote working skills built into their day. They learn how to engage and create communities online and use the systems of the future. 

  • Research skills in the digital age

    • Our students learn about finding credible resources from multiple perspectives. Our students must be critical thinkers and not fall for click-bate or what Google feeds them for their information. 

  • Community involvement

    • Our students are given multiple opportunities to give back to their community. Our goal is that they have time to explore their interests, spend time giving back, and learn how to be a responsible member of their community. 

  • Competency-based grading system

    • Montana Hybrid Academy grades students on a competency-based grading scale. Competency-based learning is closely related to proficiency-based, mastery-based, outcome-based, and performance-based learning. The process is geared towards assessing students based on mastery of a skill. 

    • Teachers and administrators work in partnership with our students and families by integrating unit self-assessments and annual goal setting. The goal is to help students learn, reach their highest potential, and discover their learning strengths.

  • Critical Thinking

    • Our year is broken down into units, and we answer an essential question in every unit. These questions vary from "Why can't we drink the water around the world?" to "How would you build a colony on Mars?". Our units then contain classes that approach these questions from a unique angle. The goal is for our students to think critically and begin solving the problems of the future. ​
