Partnership Academy's mission is to create learning experiences and partnerships that empower students to achieve their greatest potential.
We know what we’re doing works.
Partnership Academy, an elementary charter school located in the Twin Cities, was established in 2002 to provide individualized, culturally relevant learning opportunities to students from the Richfield area. On a daily basis, our fantastic faculty and dedicated support staff work with students in ways that help to eliminate the disparities that limit their potential. We're closing the achievement gap! In October of 2013, Partnership Academy was recognized by the Minnesota Department of Education as a “Celebration Eligible School,” a designation that requires significant student growth over the course of one learning year. Other organizations are taking note and giving their accolades, too. For the second year in a row in 2013, the Star Tribune named Partnership Academy to its list of schools “Beating the Odds” in the area of math.
Invest in PA, Invest in the Future
Policymakers, entrepreneurs, physicians, educators… The next generation of professionals are students at Partnership Academy.
Minnesota’s charter schools suffer from inequitable funding practices, which requires that we find ways to finance important classroom improvements, educational resources, and professional development opportunities that enhance student learning. We work hard to secure funding to fill this gap through additional revenue sources, including private gifts from individuals who support our school. Every dollar counts and directly benefits the teaching and learning that takes place at Partnership Academy, but ultimately the impact lasts a generation - because what happens in our classrooms today makes all the difference for tomorrow.
