Burley, Idaho (KMVT-TV) We've reached our final edition of Scholastic Spotlight for the school year and we're ending with a school we've never featured before, Burley Christian Academy.
The journey for Burley Christian Academy began in 1986. In 2001, the school adopted a computerized cirriculum.
Mike Johnson, the principal says, "what we're also able to to is we're able to help some people, students who have handicaps, a student who graduated, both students who graduated, one was Autistic and the other had Cerebral Palsy."
Not every student is under the computer cirriculum at this K–12 school, only the third grade level and higher.
The students come from all over, Burley, Rupert and Paul and in some years, as far away as Jerome.
"We've had up to 27, right now we have 15 students," adds Johnson.
The school charges on a monthly basis, $110 tuition, $35 for curriculum charge and anything else is incidental.
Johnson says, "if parents want to pay us up front for the entire year, we give them a percentage off and also if they have more than one student in the school, each additional student is a little less tuition."
They have two students graduating right now.
And the future looks bright for the school, as they're hoping to add some programs to attract adults as well.
