Open to all K-6 students, Art & Science Academy is a unique learning environment where dedicated teachers inspire students to realize their potential as individuals, as students, as artists, and as members of a local and global community. Students learn in small classes, receive all necessary academic support, and participate in advanced learning opportunities during an enrichment hour at the end of each day.
“The arts provide students with authentic learning experiences that are real and meaningful to them.” (Fiske, 2002)

ASA Key Design Elements

  • Arts integrated curriculum- Our students are learning and doing the arts every day!
  • Daily team-teaching approach- Arts & academic teachers work together to integrate curriculum and teach our students as a team during an integration block.
  • Teacher leadership and autonomy- Teachers are involved in all aspects of school leadership.
  • Year-round calendar- Shorter summer breaks help students retain information. Longer breaks throughout the year prevent burn-out.  
  • Small school setting
  • Small class sizes- Our students receive individualized instructional assistance including free tutoring and homework help.
  • High expectations of staff- A “no-failure” approach to educating students.
  • Longer school day option- Students in grades 2-6 will have an optional additional hour each day for homework help and enrichment activities.
  • Innovative, research backed curriculum and teaching approaches- Our curriculum is aligned to the Minnesota state academic standards
  • Looping - ASA students will benefit from looping practice, which allows single grade teachers to remain with the same class of students for two years.
