A Christian School


Windswept Academy is a private, non-denominational Christian school, dedicated to providing students from the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation with a Christ-centered, quality, academic education in a Biblically directed learning environment. In addition to our challenging academic program, our curriculum also includes the history of music, art and a rigorous physical education program. In August 2023, we will begin our 15th year! Our mission is to prepare students for leadership and Christian service in their community and the world.

Exciting News

Windswept Academy is excited to announce that we are World Magazine’s 2018 Hope Awards Northwest Region Winner! We are honored to be chosen and excited for others to learn about our children and the Reservation where they live. Thank you World Magazine!

Our Future Plans

Windswept Academy is thriving and this is due in large part to our wonderful teaching staff who have come to us from all across the United States, to work for very little compensation, simply because they have a heart to help the Lakota children. Windswept Academy owns twenty-five acres of rolling prairie located four miles west of the town of Eagle Butte. Our vision is to utilize this property to provide housing for our teachers and their families. This project has already begun. We currently have two families living on this property!! The homes will cost approximately $50,000 each. Consider helping us provide housing for our teachers. There are many ways to help.

we need your help

Windswept Academy is in great need of your support. A wide range of opportunities exists for the involvement of supporters at all levels. If you are interested in joining with us to reach out to the children of the Lakota Nation, please click here to find out how.
