We are dedicated to providing an educational enrichment experience for home schooled students. Our program offers innovative & hands-on educational experiences promoting social & academic growth in a dynamic learning environment.
Mountain Vista Home School Academy, MVHSA, is a one-day per week enrichment program that is FREE for home schooling families in the Pikes Peak region.* Children in grades K-12 attend classes with other home-schooled students one day per week. Classes include Art, Technology, Music, Science, Language Arts, and History, and include recesses and lunch.
If your student wants to participate in more than the one day of classes every week, MVHSA partners with the Colorado Springs Conservatory (CSC) to offer 2 to 4 hours of CSC classes also at no cost to families. The following after-school clubs are offered throughout the school year: Fencing, Art, Band, Yearbook, Band, PE, Rubik's Cube and Drama with Brigitta DePree of the Manitou Arts Theater. A variety of field trips may be scheduled, including visits to Chico Basin Ranch, the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Academy of Children's Theater Plays and many more.
We are excited to offer parents and students access to curriculum ordering and lending library as well as an extensive student library.
Details of the program (subject to change) are:
Classes for grades K to 6 are offered on Tuesday, 8:15 am to 3:15 pm
Classes for grades K to 6 are offered on Wednesday, 8:15 am to 3:15 pm
