Flexible, individualized, and engaging.

Montana Hybrid Academy is a hybrid education program specifically designed for teens and tweens. It blends homeschooling, world-schooling, remote learning, experiential learning, and outdoor education.

 

At Montana Hybrid Academy, we dedicate an entire day every week to outdoor education, where students learn survival skills, bushcraft skills, animal husbandry, and nature conservancy. 

Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, your child will receive fun and engaging classes via Google Classrooms from passionate teachers around the globe. Our students receive a variety of classes, from cooking to economics.  

Thursdays are Bushcraft Kid™ Day!

Our trademarked outdoor education curriculum teaches survival skills, animal husbandry, and more. Here your student will have the opportunity to earn their Hatchet Badge, Wooly Badge, Fire Badge, and Avalanche Badge. 

 

If you are not in Montana, no worries! We work with you and your student to ensure you have the resources needed for your own Bushcraft Kid™ Day.

 

Fridays we offer drop-in sessions in Language Arts, Math, and Spanish.

Here students have the opportunity to level up or get extra support if needed. We strive to meet students where they are and provide the support or challenge they need to obtain their educational goals.  Families love the flexibility of using these drop-in sessions or making the day their own.

What Parents Say!

We like the academic portion of school because it is online and he is home with us. The amount of time in between each of his classes allows him to go outside or do something physical to release some of his energy. The teachers are caring, and optimistic, and communicate with the parents when he needs help or lets us know something he did great on. We really like the new grading system that was implemented. It shows areas he needs to improve and what he has mastered. 

 

The curriculum is based on unit topics that are relevant and interesting to the students. The teachers do a great job of teaching and directing the students, while at the same time letting them have a voice in how they want to proceed in that area. 

 

We love the Bushcraft Kid Days because he gets to be outside all day. He gets pushed to be more active and participate in activities he has never done before, such as snowshoeing, making yarn, taking care of baby animals, and working on nature trails.  - Brain and Kristy
