A holistic, nature-based microschool located in the East Metro of the Twin Cities. We value self-directed, student-led learning and strive to help our students become balanced in mind-body-spirit so they can pursue their passions into adulthood.
Boone Prairie offers a classical foundation, delivering the education in an engaging way. Our model is different from typical schools hybrids in that we place students on ability for math, writing/reading. All new students 3rd-8th test into math and provide a writing sample. For example we have had 1st graders test at level 3 math and 6th graders test at Algebra level as well as level 3. The primary goal is to have all students ready for Algebra 1 by 9th grade, while students who are high ability or start the program at a younger age will often be finished with 2 HS credits by the start of 9th grade. Students without a classical background start in Latin A regardless of grade level. Classes are outdoors as much as possible through the fall and spring. Science and History are offered on a 4 year rotation. This allows families to learn together across grades for History/Geography/Art/Music, yet at the students appropriate grade level. Leadership,entrepreneurial skills, integrity/character are foundational as well.
Masterpiece Academy honors students for who they are as individuals and who they are in Christ. We serve and empower students through Biblical truth, individualized core instruction, project-based learning and character development. Our goal is to strengthen students in Christ while equipping them with 21st century skills needed for their future careers.
We function based on five pillars: individualization, relevance, immersive, technology, and faith-based.
