SCHOOL

The Mission of North Lakes Academy is to graduate students who are confident, skilled scholars and citizens. Our expectation is that students and teachers excel in core academic and artistic disciplines, develop a sense of purpose and path, and value a united community built through appreciation of diversity.

 

Since 1999, North Lakes Academy has provided a personalized learning environment designed to meet a wide variety of academic needs. With strong core subjects and a full complement of liberal arts courses, NLA provides quality learning in a responsive learning atmosphere.  In 2008, NLA was granted approval from the state of Minnesota to expand to serve students in grades 5-12. The first graduating class was the class of 2011.

 

North Lakes Academy is one of the oldest charter schools in Minnesota, one of the last teacher-run school boards in the United States located in a large land-area district on the border between suburban and rural Minnesota.

 

WHY US?

+ We help students discover their passions and stay confident learners throughout their lives.

+ We work in a fast-paced, collaborative environment that is thoughtful about designing reflection and resetting time for teachers and students.

+ We think about what we can do better and faster than other area schools on a daily basis and learn quickly from other models of innovation (See our Becoming Program for one example).

+ We’re a friendly and creative team with diverse backgrounds, who are all really kids, parents, coaches, and entrepreneurs at heart.

+ We’re an interesting school that feels more like a startup, a workshop, and a family.

+ We’re close to Highway 35 and easily accessible from the metro area or surrounding suburbs (Many teachers commute from the cities, surrounding suburbs, and even Wisconsin).

+ We design flexible professional development experiences.

+ We provide exceptional medical and dental benefits.

+ We work with teachers to choose a personalized technology setup.
