Yellowstone. Forever.

Grounded in Faith, Building for the Future

Yellowstone was founded out of a desire to live out the Gospel. Since our founding, we have remained faithful to this call. We've been unafraid to pioneer a distinctive model for education that is changing lives. Today, against a backdrop of social and cultural discord and the devastating academic impacts of COVID-19, our mission is more critical than ever before.

Thank you for helping us to complete our $30 million comprehensive campaign, Yellowstone. Forever. The Campaign for Yellowstone Schools, which recognizes the importance of our mission. We could not do this work without you.

By 2026, Yellowstone Schools will provide a Life-Changing Experience to 750 students in PK3-12th grade on one campus.

Your partnership helped us:

  • Fund a Post-COVID School Model: Our program is even more intentional and personalized as we emerge from this pandemic. You helped our students catch up and ultimately excel.
  • Renovate our Current Building: Built in 1926, our facility needed critical upgrades to its fire/security systems, restrooms, underground plumbing, cafeteria, clinic, and common areas.
  • Construct a New Building: Our 51,000 sq. ft. building has a new cafeteria, classrooms, science labs, library, common areas, and administrative spaces. This new space is enabling us to double our student population and grow to serve students through high school.
  • Acquire Land/Improve Outdoor Space: We created age-appropriate spaces to serve our PreK-12th grade population, including basketball courts, playgrounds, and an outdoor classroom. Additional funding enabled us to acquire land for future fields, buildings, and parking.
  • Provide Financial Sustainability: We established a repair/ maintenance reserve fund to support our capital improvements moving forward and provide crucial financial security as our model grows.

Jesus Christ is the same

yesterday and today and forever.

Campaign Progress

Last year I stated that we were “excited to move towards a brighter future.” Looking out my office window with Yellowstone’s most recent test scores on my desk, I can see that brighter future taking shape. While the new building continues to take shape outside, our students and teachers have focused on academics inside. I am thrilled to report that our students showed significant academic growth! Our plans for academic recovery are working! Students’ academics are recovering from the nationwide-slide since the start of the pandemic . Our teachers and staff are working hard, and it shows.

We were blessed to acquire much of the building materials before supply chain issues began, which helped us stay on schedule with construction. We also had several celebratory moments to remind us of the purpose of our new building, including a Foundation Blessing ceremony in January and a beam signing event with all of our students, staff, family, and friends in May.

Our alumni, who graduated from Yellowstone in 2018 as 8th graders, just wrapped up their senior year of high school. All of them graduated, and 100% are heading to college (half of those are out of state). These positive results are why we continue to move forward to provide a brighter future for more students.

I hope you enjoy this report on all of the progress we’ve made, the challenges ahead, and a look at the exciting things to come in this new academic year.
