Welcome to Fireweed Academy…

…a vibrant community of readers, writers and problem solvers for the 21st century

Fireweed Academy is a free public charter school within the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District, serving grades K-6. Our mission is

‘To provide a compassionate learning environment that gives students, parents, teachers, and community members opportunities to develop: Self-reliance, cooperation, creativity, reasoning ability, personal growth and academic achievement’

Check out “Alaska Is My Home” a song written and sung by the K-2 students of Little Fireweed during a week long guest artist workshop during the 2019 World Arts Festival held in Homer.  Our featured Guest artist was Roger Lusby from New Zealand.  Thank you to Sally Oberstein and Kiirsten Styvar  for helping bring Roger to us!
