Our regular Algebra I course is still available with open enrollment for those wishing to enroll at any time.


We are so excited to offer this synchronous course (learning with classmates at the same pace set by the teacher!) Students will have deadlines and requirements of meeting daily on weekdays via Zoom with their teacher and fellow students to receive direct instruction. More information can be found below!

Meet Kent Kast

Mr. Kast enjoys almost anything outdoors.  Growing up in Colorado, he spent time mountain climbing, skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking,  and rock climbing. Currently, his new hobby is hanging out with his three year old grandson that he took skiing for the first time this last winter. He has 4 children and 3 grandchildren. He enjoys reading books in the evenings or listening to audio books while working in the yard.  Math was his major in college, and then added the sciences while teaching in the Adventist school system.  His favorite classes to teach are math, chemistry, and physics.
