Educating Idaho’s pregnant and parenting teens.

YOUNG PARENTS, WE GOT THIS!

Becoming a parent at a young age comes with many challenges. Finishing high school doesn’t have to be one of them. Our safe, judgment-free program can provide needed support and services in one place so you can stay in school . When you earn a high school diploma and learn valuable job skills, you will earn $10,000 more per year than if you do not have a high school education.

SCHOOL

Cardinal Academy is a free, public school which offers a flexible, personalized academic program and special education services for expectant and parenting students in grades 9-12. Students don’t have to choose between working to support their new family and earning their high school diploma.

CAREER + COLLEGE

We see your potential — we won’t let you give up on it. High school graduation is just the beginning. Cardinal’s team will help you explore career and college options, and give you hands-on career experience, so you can make a plan for your future you’re excited about.
