Yvonne Padilla and Students

We are VERY excited to say that Ms. Yvonne Padilla has accepted the position of Director for the Mountain Vista Home School Academy!

Yvonne comes to us from the Home School Connection (CMCA), where she has served as Assistant Director and Mathematics Teacher. Her experiences there since the program’s establishment in 2002, along with her previous nine years in management at a major financial institution, give her the unique abilities to launch and manage our MVHSA program.

“We couldn’t have found a better person to lead us into the future,” says Susan Dalnoky of MVHSA’s Parent Action Committee. “Yvonne is intimately connected with so many homeschooling families in our community. Her approach is a breath of fresh air, balancing discipline and respect for school objectives, with fun, creativity, and open communication. Her love for the students, combined with her passion for excellence, will undoubtedly lead this enrichment program to incredible heights. Her vision for the future is exciting!”

MVHSA parents may expect to see some wonderful new opportunities like drama club, field trips, Challenger Program, Math Olympiad, special speakers, and much more - all this at no cost to parents. Harrison District Two is extremely supportive, providing space in their beautiful Mountain Vista Community School – the newest facility in the district.

Ms. Padilla will leave her current position with CMCA at the end of the term, after which she will focus on hiring teachers and launching the new program. Join us in welcoming Yvonne Padilla to the Mountain Vista Home School Academy!
