Treasure Valley Leadership Academy (TVLA) is Idaho’s first innovation high school. It operates in the Nampa School District. Innovation schools are new to Idaho, the result of a law passed in March 2016 that allows up to ten public schools a year to receive flexibility from laws and policies that impede local autonomy, allowing them to be agile, innovative and empowered to adapt to local circumstances.

TVLA launched at the start of the 2017-18 school year with a class of 40 ninth-graders. It will add a grade each year until it is a four-year, 600-student high school. The school is committed to allowing students to be pace-setters of their own learning experience through a mastery-based model that utilizes information technology to question the concepts of seat-time, student advancement by age, use of staff and even hours of operation.
