The first part of our mission is to support families because raising up the next generation is hard and important work. Mountain Sprouts is a 501c3 non-profit so we can provide an educational service to our community, paid for by the community.

It is our top priority to hire and retain high quality, professional educators. We cannot offer our students what they need without the right teachers to support and guide their development.
Our tuition rates are set based on the cost of funding staff. We raise money to offset these costs because they are
We are so thankful to our 2017 - 2018 contributors who made these scholarships possible!
