WELCOME, and thank you for your interest in Kootenai Bridge Academy!

We are a Virtual Public Charter School. We charge no tuition and our students earn a regular high school diploma. Our great advantage is that our small size, highly dedicated staff and unique approach to online learning allow us to focus on individual student needs and tailor our program to maximize learning opportunities for our students.

We were approved by the State Charter Commission and the State Board of Education in October 2008. Our primary mission is to help students who have not succeeded in traditional school settings to earn their diploma and prepare for post-secondary education or entry into the workforce.

Some portions of our website are still under construction, but you will find our online application process is up and running; if you are interested in enrolling, just click on the Admissions tab.

Kootenai Bridge Academy is open to Juniors and Seniors ages 16-20. If you have any questions, please email us at kootenaibridgeacademy@gmail.com or call us at (208) 930-4515.
