Grand opening for Alpine Academy on Friday

CHUBBUCK, Idaho (KIFI) - The new Alpine Academy Middle School is officially open for business.

Previously, Connor Academy has served grades K-8 in the Chubbuck/Pocatello area. As the community has grown, there is a greater need to expand and provide additional facilities to better serve students and the community.

The new Alpine Academy School will now house grades 6-8, while the existing school has been repurposed to house grades K-5. 

The new middle school will provide 10 general classrooms, a special education room, music/drama classroom which can be converted as a stage for performances and events, fitness classroom, kitchen & cafeteria/multi-purpose room, art classroom, science classroom, computer classroom, media center and a large centrally focused “learning stair” for social gatherings/assemblies. 

This new school will provide a campus feeling with two adjacent charter schools to share some of the outdoor space, while providing the older students a new building of their own and more space for grades K-5.
