Private school plans opening in Bozeman despite pandemic

Jessica Dehn had been thinking for a few years about what kind of school she might want to run.

After four and a half years directing a childcare center, Dehn put together the pieces in June to focus on launching a new school. In September, just three months later, she plans to open Explore Academy.

“In reality it’s been in my heart, and I’ve had a desire to do something like this for a long time,” Dehn said.
