They are Hillcrest, South Jr, Grace Jordan and Meridian Academy. Additionally, we are teaching a class at the Boys and Girls Club along with Boise Rescue Mission. We have about 400 students on a waitlist and entire school districts that want to join our program. The program will eventually be moved online to better accommodate rural students and inner-city students across the Nation.
