We are chartered under the Whitepine School District #288 and accredited through AdvancED. We offer a wide range of curriculum and course options to meet students individualized needs. Students have access to learning tools 24/7 and can tailor their daily schedule to best meet their needs. Parents play a critical role in their child’s education and provide daily instructional support. Advanced level curriculum and courses are available for qualified students. Free tutoring services are provided for students who are not yet performing at grade level. Our goal is to provide a challenging and engaging educational experience for every child.

Since 2004, Idaho Distance Education Academy and Whitepine Joint School District have been working together, mutual partners in a common goal; preparing students for future success in the growing global marketplace. We, at Idaho Distance Education Academy, would like to thank the school district for its continued support for Idaho students and our school. We look forward to an ongoing partnership and relentless pursuit towards excellence in education producing successful outcomes for our students statewide.
