Learning Academy Mission

The Learning Academy of Teton Valley is an independent school in Driggs, Idaho offering pre-school and K-8 education. Our mission is to create an educational experience in an environment where students feel safe, supported, and engaged in their learning process. We encourage learners to work to their full potential, to exhibit independent thought, self-confidence, creativity, and imagination.

Using a thematic, integrated curriculum; character and team building activities; and enrichment activities we work to adapt our teaching to meet each child’s individual needs. Our belief is that because each child is unique, their learning experience should be tailored to them so that they may excel and have great success in school.

History of the School

The Learning Academy of Teton Valley began in one classroom with fifteen students, ages 5-12. It was reminiscent of the one-room schoolhouses of the past. Dani Wilson, the school’s dedicated founder, struck out on her own and brought some of her old students and friends with her. Thus, The Learning Academy was born. It was a discombobulated but successful first year spent piecing together curriculum, supplies and teaching strategies, but students were happy, comfortable and, most importantly, thriving and learning so…we grew! The next year, with Kristin Johnson on board, we moved to a new space, gained more students and kept doing what we knew was right for students: meeting them where they are and letting them learn at their own pace. Believing that all students can learn and love learning has been the core upon which our now 70 student strong campus has grown.

Danielle Wilson

Founder, Teacher, Curriculum Director

The Learning Academy of Teton Valley (LATV) began with Dani’s commitment and vision in 2004. She received her Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Child Development from Weber State University and has been teaching since 1998. She is a member of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Dani can teach any child to read! She is an expert in teaching phonics and fosters a love a reading in even the most tentative and hesitant readers. Dani has a thousand tricks up her sleeve for teaching difficult math concepts too! When she’s not tirelessly working at the school, Dani loves to ride horses, read, play chess and spend time with her husband Todd and their children Brody, Jake, Aimee, and Kristen.

Todd Wilson

Founder, Board President, Living History Enrichment

Todd Wilson, Dani’s better half, is (among his many titles at The Learning Academy), our board president. He has been a successful business owner for over 20 years. He can be found doing everything from building castle walls to doing 18th century historical reenactments to making beeswax candles with the students. He is an integral part of the daily workings of the school. We couldn’t do what we do without Mr. Todd.

Summer Camp

 The Learning Academy’s 2018 summer camp will be SO MUCH FUN! There is no better place for your child to enjoy all that summer vacation has to offer. Water play, science experiments, art, biking, swimming, drama, hiking, field trips, gardening and baking are just some of the activities that our awesome summer camp counselors plan. Your child will be sliding on water slides, painting and creating, shooting hoops, riding their bike, making elephant toothpaste, acting on stage and hiking in the canyons.
