School History:

West River Academy was founded in 1993 by Peggy Webb, a mom who was looking for an umbrella school that would give her the legal status she needed, while allowing her the freedom to work with her children as she saw fit. She couldn’t find what she was looking for, so she decided to create one! She was sure there would be others looking for the same type of program, and the next decades of growth proved her to be correct.

West River Academy developed into an international, accredited and affordable K-12 private school, serving homeschooling and unschooling families of all ages and grade levels, all over the world, with headquarter offices in California and Colorado USA.
