The Academy for Sciences and Agriculture, a public charter school for grades K - 12, engages learners in academically rigorous student-centered learning experiences and leadership opportunities within a science and agricultural context.
Our focus is the development of lifelong learners who have high skill levels, care for others, and are prepared to thrive in a diverse, global, and changing society. Family involvement, community support, and partnerships with agribusiness and educational organizations will be emphasized.
AFSA High School for grades K - 12 was founded in 2001 with the purpose of providing agricultural literacy to an urban and suburban population. The school has expanded to include career opportunities in five areas of science, including: Engineering, Animal Science, Plant Science, Environmental Science, and Food Science. In 2005, the location in Vadnais Heights opened its doors. This facility was purposefully designed to fit our curriculum and mission. AFSA High School's location allows the inclusion of students from all northern Twin Cities areas to attend. In 2014, AFSA added grades 5 - 6 and will be adding grades K - 4 in the 2019-2020 school year.
