WELCOME TO PETRA ACADEMY
Parents want a school that gives them confidence they’re doing right by their kids. We understand how overwhelming the responsibility of educating a child can seem and want to help by partnering with parents to prepare students to live purposeful, godly lives. To learn more about our integrated, life-encompassing classical Christian education, watch our vision videos below, read our profile and mission, or visit us in person as part of our Tours on Thursday.
Currently enrolled families are invited to re-enroll returning students, new siblings, and staff children not already enrolled for 2018-19! Please find the access key emailed to you on February 15 and complete the re-enrollment process online for your student(s). Closed re-enrollment continues through March 14. New to Petra?

Our Secondary students are practicing embodying the virtue of love by seeking to care for those in need in the greater community of Bozeman. This Valentine’s Day, rather than exchanging trinkets and notes, our Secondary students are halfway through our first food drive, with the proceeds benefiting the Gallatin Valley Food Bank.
Interested in helping? Donations will be collected on the counter in the Secondary Flex Space until this Friday afternoon (2/16) and then taken to the Food Bank for distribution. For questions or more information, contact Housemaster Eli Denison.
On March 1-3, Petra brings Louisa May Alcott’s beloved novel Little Women to life on our stage with four shows: Thursday and Friday nights at 7 p.m.; Saturday at 2 and 7 p.m. This classic tale chronicles the lives of the four March daughters – Meg, Jo, Beth, Amy – as they face the challenges of life, love, and growing up.
Tickets are on sale online and available at the front desk or from students. Buy before February 22 for normal rates: $10 general seating; $20 reserved seating; February 22 and later: $12 general seating; $24 reserved seating.

As we prepare for the start of our re-enrollment period on February 15, we invite you and your family to consider anew your Petra expedition as a journey of pilgrimage.

Students spent several weeks looking at the Fruit of the Spirit as described in Galatians 5:22 and were challenged to write a poem that reflected one or all of the virtues listed. Nineteen students took up the challenge and […]

At Petra, that is the purpose of our eight houses: Avilion, Bedivere, Enid, Excalibur, Galahad, Gawain, Nimue, and Pendragon. These groups of students are integrated across the grades, […]
