Mission Statement

The mission of Groves Academy is to enable people with learning, attention and language disorders to achieve success in school and in life.

As a school , we provide small classes and specialized staff to teach students the skills needed to learn independently, engage in self-advocacy, and develop social competence.

As an outreach center, we contribute to the understanding of learning difficulties through programs and services for families, educators and other professionals.

As a learning community, we value our differences and provide a responsive and respectful environment.

Description

Groves Academy is a private, independent, day school for students who have learning disabilities or attention disorders. Located in St. Louis Park, MN, a first-ring suburb of Minneapolis, Groves is the only school of its kind in the state. Groves has provided exemplary full-day and outreach programs to the Twin Cities community for over 30 years.

The Groves full-day program, accredited through ISACS (Independent Schools Association of the Central States) enrolls 200 students in grades 1 through 12. Average class sizes of eight, research-based instruction, and a supportive, personalized environment enable each student to have a positive school experience and achieve academic success. Some students graduate from Groves; others stay at Groves for three or four years before transitioning to a school where they can successfully apply the skills and strategies they learned at Groves.

The Groves outreach program supports students, families and educators throughout the Twin Cities community. Outreach opportunities include diagnostic assessments, individual tutoring, summer school programs, community outreach workshops, teacher training, and an annual college fair. Outreach services benefit students and also allow interested adults to learn from the expertise and experience of Groves teachers. At the same time, outreach efforts help Groves stay current in the field of learning disabilities and up-to-date with advances in research-based instruction. The original Groves Learning Center was started in 1972 by a group of parents who didn't want to have to send their learning disabled children to east coast schools in order to receive the kind of education that would help them become academically successful. Groves Academy moved to its current location in 1982. A major renovation was completed in 2002 to update facilities and add additional classrooms.
