Mid-Metro Academy meets at 1983 Dayton Avenue in St. Paul's charming Merriam Park neighborhood. Our spacious classrooms in our secure school building offer the perfect environment for our dynamic, interactive instruction. We use a flipped classroom model where students access content at home and meet once a week with their instructor and classmates for peer-to-peer and teacher-led learning.
From a foundation of Christian values, Mid-Metro Academy offers academic, language, visual and performing arts, and career-oriented classes to homeschooled students in grades 7 – 12, preparing them for success in undergraduate programs, careers, and life. Our courses are taught in person by highly qualified, personable instructors who have a passion for their field and for working with youth.
Our one-of-a-kind PSEO program is designed to meet the unique needs of homeschooling families. Cohort learning provides a supportive high school experience for college-ready juniors and seniors as they begin their college journey. We partner with North Central University, a fully accredited liberal arts university.
For high school students who aren't ready for PSEO or don't see college in their future--or for those who want to start their side hustle now--we offer career-oriented classes in technology, design, and business. Our STEAM emphasis helps students build capabilities that will serve them well in the real world--like critical thinking, communication, problem-solving, and resilience.

Homeschooling through high school gives your student a wide range of valuable opportunities inaccessible to traditionally educated students. But of course, those opportunities won't materialize without some serious strategizing!
We know that along with the opportunities of homeschooling come unique challenges. As a parent, you must make sure your students take the necessary courses so their diplomas will be as meaningful as any other high school diploma. You need to prepare a high school transcript that colleges or other institutions will accept and that will accurately reflect what your student has achieved through home, classroom, and other learning experiences.
You also want to help your student make decisions that can set the course for adulthood—at a time when he or she is just discovering his or her own identity. That’s a tall order.
Luckily, Mid-Metro has already done the strategizing for you! We've developed streamlined educational plans to help students pursue their unique goals and passions both in high school and beyond.
Our FREE planning workshop will help you conquer your student's big picture plan and streamline your transcript preparation strategy.

We Offer the Best of Both Worlds in 2021-2022!
If you’re looking for the best learning environment for your student for the 2021-2022 school year, you’ve come to the right place! We believe students learn best in a dynamic, interactive, in-person setting, so we’re committed to meeting on-site at our wonderful St. Paul campus this fall--as we have been this school year. Our classes meet in physical space—not cyberspace.
Since our classes meet once a week, students and families enjoy the flexibility and convenience of the hybrid model that works so well with the homeschooling lifestyle. Our teachers use a flipped-classroom approach, which means that students access content at home through various media including video, textbooks, and handouts. Depending on the class, they’ll have homework that helps them apply what they’ve accessed. When students come to class each week, they’ll engage in social learning activities like discussions, group projects, simulations, and experiments plus get real-time feedback from their teacher. These kinds of experiences make learning stick—even as they build soft skills like teamwork, communication, and resilience.
Whether you're just getting started with homeschooling or have been doing it for years, our classes are a great option for the 2021-2022 school year. If you're considering joining us next year, attend our next Open House on Monday evening, June 7. We're always excited to welcome new students!
Registration for fall classes is now open. You must be a member of Mid-Metro Academy to register.
