Employment

Treasure Valley Classical Academy is a public charter school serving Idaho families primarily in the Payette County area. The school will open for the 2019-20 school year with students in grades K-6 and will expand to K-12 as our students advance.

The mission of TVCA is to train the minds and improve the hearts of students through a classical, content-rich curriculum that emphasizes virtuous living, traditional learning, and civic responsibility.

The curriculum (scope and sequence) is provided by Hillsdale College and the Barney Charter School Initiative. The elementary school (K-6) curriculum consists of explicit phonics in spelling and reading; grammar via diagramming; the Core Knowledge sequence (not to be confused with Common Core) in literature, history, and science; Singapore math; and Latin and Greek roots. Formal Latin is studied from the seventh to the eighth grades, and another year of Latin is required in the ninth grade. The reading of great books informed by Socratic discussion commences in the elementary school. The upper-school curriculum centers on the reading and discussion of great books in literature and primary sources in history and on a thorough understanding of both the facts and the concepts in mathematics and the sciences. The study of art and music is required K-8, and art and music electives are offered as well. To graduate, all seniors must write a senior thesis and deliver and defend it orally in front of their fellow students, members of the faculty, and the principal.

Teachers are hired based upon their mastery of academic disciplines and ability to convey knowledge to young people. Certification for teachers is required in Idaho, though not necessary for initial hire. The school will work with teachers who require certification in order to complete this process within the initial 3-year teaching term.
