Prairie Seeds Academy is a public charter school. Tuition, meals and transportation are provided for every child. After-school learning and activities, sports, summer school and field trips provide an engaging place of growing learning and sharing. We have 800+ K-12 students.
PSA strives to raise bright, confident global leaders and problem-solvers. We do this in concert with families, communities, businesses and other local educational facilities.
For example: The PSA “College-In-School” classes through the University of Minnesota enable students to earn UMN college credits while in High School. Students can earn credits from North Hennepin Community College and Minnesota International University. These credits are often accepted towards the completion of a college degree. Juniors and seniors at PSA can accumulate a semester or two of courses towards completion of their undergraduate college degrees–saving thousands of dollars.
Prairie Seeds Academy Honors Courses are offered for students who have shown outstanding abilities in subject areas. Currently PSA offers Honors Courses in the following areas: English, Social Studies and Science.
Our students come from many diverse communities including: Hmong, Laotian, Cambodian, Latino, Liberian African American and others. We have a zero tolerance policy for harassment (bullying) and hazing–two of the main challenges facing immigrant children. We provide a safe and supportive environment for students to learn and grow.
The majority of the students at PSA speak more than one language at home. We are staffed with Reading, Math, and Special Education specialists to provide additional supports for students who are learning to speak English as their primary language. A team of tutors from Americorps, tutorial and mentoring programs help students put these new skills to work in their academic classes. Prairie Seeds Academy has literacy and language learning courses in Hmong and Spanish.
Prairie Seeds Academy is an International Middle Years Programme School. These curriculum help students enter the colleges that they want and prepares them to become our community leaders.
