Braedon Higby is a high school student at INSPIRE, the Idaho Connections Academy. He lives in Meridian, Idaho with his parents and younger brother, Colton, who is also an INSPIRE student. As an independent student, Braedon likes that INSPIRE allows him to work at pace that suits his learning style. His mom shares his story below.

“Braedon is in high school. He was president of the Junior Honor Society last year and was elected senior patrol leader of his Boy Scout troop. Braedon was also chosen to be crew leader for his troop’s trek down to Philmont this summer. He has recently joined a curling club and has spent a lot of his time learning about this Olympic sport. When he isn’t in the back-country with his troop or spending time at the ice rink, he is reading anything related to physics and aeronautics.

Braedon is a self-motivated student. He needed a school that challenged him and allowed him to work at a pace that kept him from becoming bored with education. He also needed to find teachers who would encourage his independence and respond to his complex questions. INSPIRE was the answer! At INSPIRE, Braedon can take the classes he wants at the level he needs in order to be challenged.

Braedon has built an amazing rapport with all of his teachers. They are always available to answer any questions he may have regarding his school assignments or his independent reading in physics. His teachers are always there for encouragement and support.

Braedon says, ‘One bonus to INSPIRE is all of the field trips.’ He looks forward to each one, where he gets to meet the other students in his class and talk to his teachers in person. INSPIRE has truly been the answer for Braedon. The school gives him the tools he needs to reach his dreams.”
