Helena Charter Schools

Pre-registration is now open for the district’s new Mount Ascension Learning Academy charter school, offering a blend of virtual and in-person classes. Families can also enter a lottery for a slot in Montessori kindergarten.

 Helena Public Schools is among districts across Montana opening charter schools under House Bill 549 (HB 549) passed by the 2023 Legislature.

The Mount Ascension Learning Academy will offer students in grades 6-12 a choice of virtual learning courses or a blend of virtual and in-person classes. Interested families will receive guidance to help identify the best learning options for their student’s needs. All courses will be taught by certified in-person and virtual instructors
