Petra Academy, Bozeman’s second largest private school, plans to continue growing in the next year. Petra will break ground on a 2 million dollar classroom expansion that should be finished before fall of 2015. They plan on adding 8,600 square feet to the building, including 8 additional classrooms. Petra, who offers a Christian/Classical education to its students, has always limited its classroom size to 16, and had been forced to turn away students in previous years. Currently teaching 170 students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, the expansion should ease this ongoing issue. With more and more young families looking to move to Bozeman, most of the expansions are aimed at Petra’s youngest students. The renovation will almost double the elementary wing of the school. Expansions like the one at Petra, should offer more than enough room for new Bozemanites looking for the right school for their children.

Top Montana high school students, who received a Montana University System Honor Scholarship, continue to choose Montana State University and Bozeman over any other college or university in the state.The MUS Honor Scholarship rewards students for exceptional academic excellence at the high school level, requiring applicants to maintain a 3.4 grade point average after 7 semesters of high school. MUS Honor Scholars can receive free tuition for up to four years based on this GPA coupled with their SAT and ACT scores. At MSU, this converts to around 5,300 dollars annually. Yet, even with high competition levels between Montana schools, sixty-eight percent of these students have applied to MSU, reflecting a higher percentage than all other Montana universities combined. MSU beat its own numbers this year, up five percent from the previous year. High quality programs continue to attract young ambitious thinkers, while its university culture and a positive relationship with the city of Bozeman continue to spur these numbers forward. Intelligent students in higher numbers can only be a positive sign for Bozeman’s future.
