Reduce Driving Time and Expense

Driving your students to and from their classes at Mid-Metro Academy costs time and money.

We get it! Many of our families travel quite a distance. We’ve had families drive in from as far away as Faribault, Wisconsin, and even Duluth. They’re willing to log all those miles because of our unique classes and awesome teachers!

We appreciate the commitment it takes to get your students here, especially during the winter. We want to make your day more convenient.

Here are some ideas to help you reduce your fuel expense and time on the road.

Share the Driving Duties

Check the Carpooling Forum on our website to find other parents who are looking for ridesharing options.

Hang Out at a Nearby Coffee Shop

Rather than driving home and back again, you may want to remain in the neighborhood while your student is in class. Our charming area of Roseville is replete with coffee shops. All of the following are within a five-minute drive from our campus:

  • Caribou
  • Dunn Brothers
  • Starbucks

Get Your Shopping Done

Another idea is to plan your weekly shopping trips around your student’s class time. There are plenty of popular stores nearby, including:

  • Lunds & Byerly's

  • Target

  • Trader Joe’s

  • Walmart

  • Rosedale Center

Remain on Site in the Parent Lounge

This year we’re pleased to be able to offer a Parent Lounge where families who have a long drive can park themselves while their students attend classes. Advent Lutheran Church invites you to use the Narthex area to socialize with other parents, read, get caught up on your emails and computer work, or relax for a while. This area is open only to parents whose students are taking classes or study hall. Parents may bring one or two of their younger children with them (birth through sixth grade). 

When the weather is nice, you might also enjoy taking a walk in neighboring Cottontail Park or nearby Lake Josephine County Park.
