Formerly known as Riverstone School

 Coming to you    September 2022 

Who We Are

Twelve Elements Academy is an independent school for children ages 8-19 located on a permaculture farm in Hamilton, MT. We give children confidence, love, and support, so they have the ability to dive into who they are, who they are becoming, and who they want to be. 

What We Offer

We are a holistic school and offer a full curriculum with learning opportunities you won't find at other schools. Our classrooms are mixed-age, partially child-driven, with a maximum of 12 students per classroom. We only serve gluten-free, dairy-free, non-GMO, organic and low glycemic food. 


The mission of Twelve Elements  Academy is to cultivate a vibrant learning environment that embraces each child's unique genius. Through an experiential, kinesthetic, and holistic education, students are encouraged to collaborate, learn, and grow as individuals and engaged citizens of the world. 

A New Way

Have you been dreaming of an educational opportunity for your children where they feel safe and excited to learn? Have you been dreaming of a school that allows them to explore and express their unique genius? Twelve Elements Academy offers all of this and more. 

Twelve Elements Academy places equal emphasis on a solid academic foundation, artistic expression, social and emotional development, and attention to the inner life of the child.

We are offering a new educational philosophy, one we feel is the healthiest, most vibrant learning opportunity for our children.
