Open Enrollment at Hiawatha Academies
Hiawatha Academies is a K-12 school that offers your child a unique educational experience that’s challenging, yet fun, and designed to fully prepare them for college. We refer to our learners as “scholars,” as we consider them to be a bit more than ordinary students in that they value education and make it an important part of their lives and future. We foster this love of learning in our scholars by allowing them to explore their interests, having relevant and engaging curriculum, and by having teachers who are caring and truly passionate about education. In addition to readying your child for college, at Hiawatha, it’s also our goal to help them develop the character and motivation they need to meet their dreams, serve the common good, and secure their future.
Our scholars benefit from a cohesive curriculum that, even from kindergarten, is designed to give them the education and tools they need for college. In grades K-4, scholars enjoy rigorous and interactive lessons and activities that help them build a strong knowledge base that will serve them in higher grades. Those in middle school and high school benefit from our challenging college preparatory courses that are specially designed to not only teach them facts and figures but also encourage them to develop critical thinking and other skills that will help them succeed in college and beyond. Although the curriculum is demanding, we keep it enjoyable for students by providing a variety of learning experiences, including those in technology, engineering, the arts, and a variety of extracurricular activities.
Working to Close the “Opportunity Gap”
Minnesota has the nation’s second highest achievement gap in reading and math between white students and those of color. We recognize this gap as being due to differences in opportunity not ability. Therefore, our schools have a mission to close this opportunity gap by creating a more equitable system of education and by providing a welcoming space for scholars and their families from all cultures and backgrounds.
