Kickapoo Valley 
Forest School

In June 2020, we announced that the Kickapoo Valley Forest School (KVFShas been funded by a federal charter school grant. KVFS is a new public charter school created through a collaboration between the Kickapoo Valley Reserve and the La Farge School District. It is set to open for its first class of 4K/5K children in August of 2021. An additional grade will be added each year through the 2nd grade. The school will be open to all children as a free and public charter.


 Innovation in education is very alive in Vernon County, Wisconsin, and as we step into beginning a new school within the long history of educational institutions in this area, we are optimistic that creating a school to maximize students' and teachers' time outdoors is a valuable contribution to this education landscape.



The Kickapoo Reserve Management Board acknowledges that the state and federal lands that comprise the Reserve fall within the ancestral homelands of First Nations people including the Hooçak Nation. We recognize the sovereignty of the Hooçak and other First Nations and will work towards a shared future by continuing to create collaborative opportunities to protect and preserve these lands.
