Mission Statement

The school mission is dedicated to creating a socially committed, morally responsible and ethnically diverse learning environment, which values students individually and collectively. The goal is to encourage student’s maximum intellectual and leadership development to meet 21st century standards of education through concerted preparation to pursue post secondary and post baccalaureate studies. It is intended that students graduating from Higher Ground Academy will be adequately prepared to assume leadership roles in their communities and fields of endeavor.
The tenets of Higher Ground Academy are that all children can learn; that children learn all of the time; that experience teaches immediately; and that expectations are built on experience.

Description

Higher Ground Academy is a non-profit 501(c) (3) Minnesota K-12 public school located at 1381 Marshall Avenue, St. Paul. It was chartered by the state of Minnesota in 1997 and revised in 1999. The school started operating with approval of the Saint Paul Public School System and in partnership with Concordia University. After seven years of existence with the Saint Paul Public School District as sponsor, Higher Ground Academy decided to change sponsors and Concordia University is now the new sponsor.
Higher Ground Academy is a school of choice and has been in operation since September 7, 1999. The school was opened to kindergarten through 9th grade students. However, an additional grade level was added each successive year. The Academy enrolled 12th grade students in its program during the 2002-2003 school year, thus attaining the goal of K-12 enrollment by fall of 2002.
