“A big move like this raises the biggest of questions: what is our home? Where do we belong? And what Aaron is quickly discovering is that the new building is a wonderful home for Billings. His science class finally has a wet lab where his class has already dissolved the shells off of raw eggs and bounced them to test the strength of their rubbery membranes. There is a music room full of instruments where he is strumming his electric guitar. His flag football team runs plays in the gym. And when he gets to school early, his friends are waiting for him in the enormous yard. There is no doubt in his mind, or ours: this is where we belong.”

- Rachel Scherr & Dale Hailey, 2019 Annual Fund Chairs

Our Annual Fund provides critical operating funds for the school that help fill the gap (about $2,400) between tuition and the actual cost of a Billings education.


Support the unique elements of a Billings education:

-A stand-alone middle school by design

-Individualized advisory program

-Student-to-teacher ratio of 9:1

-An exemplary expeditionary learning program in which students spend over thirty days traveling, much of it in the outdoors

-“Big campus” arts and athletics programs in a small school

-Professional development to retain and support our exceptional teachers

-A strong financial aid program to assure that our classes are social-economically diverse and reflect the larger community
