Chief Financial Officer

IDAHO ARTS CHARTER SCHOOL Southwest / Boise Accounting/Bookkeeping Not Applicable Full Time Posted 1Y ago

About this job

Idaho Arts Charter School (IACS) was envisioned by a committed group of founding parents in 2003 because of a
need for high quality college preparatory offerings with a focus on the arts. The vision of the IACS founders was to
create a school that was highly engaging for students, using the arts as the conduit for that engagement. At the
time many schools were cutting arts programs and the founders were among a group of concerned parents. They
wanted to design a school where the arts would be in the forefront, giving students a space to create and explore
their personal talents. Our mission statement is “Engaged learning through the Arts” and we continue to expand on
this every year.
IACS opened in 2005, serving 450 students across grades K-10, growing into a K-12 school. Every year since IACS has
maintained a robust waitlist. Families in the Nampa community and surrounding area want an alternative to
traditional public school.
In order to meet this need, IACS has expanded several times and currently serves 1,240 students across grades K-12
on two campuses. Over the next few years the growth will continue to a maximum of 1560 students.
