School Notes

  • Cardinal Academy will provide an academic program in a supportive environment where students are prepared for parenthood, college, career and life. Cardinal Academy Public Charter High School is a high school and specialty program of opportunity focusing on pregnant and parenting teens and young adults, females and males, ages 14 to 21, grades 9 through 12. The school is founded by veteran academic and career counselor, Emily Bergstrom, and veteran educator, Deborah Hedden-Nicely, who have almost 30 years combined experience with pregnant and parenting teens and young adults in Boise. The founders will take a comprehensive approach of educating the whole person by providing students with a strong and relevant educational experience and partnering with The Salvation Army, Boise Corps and other community partners, to provide on-campus wrap-around services necessary to support pregnant and parenting students staying in school. This will enable students to continue to pursue the completion of a high school education through graduation and beyond.
