Mid-Metro Academy offers academic, drama, art, language, and career track classes from a foundation of Christian values to homeschooled students in grades 7 – 12, preparing them for success in undergraduate programs and careers. Courses are taught by highly qualified, personable instructors who have a passion for their field and for working with youth.
Mid-Metro Academy partners with North Central University to provide a unique PSEO program designed with homeschoolers in mind. This new approach to PSEO maintains the high school experience while offering college-ready juniors and seniors a rigorous and intellectually stimulating yet supportive environment in which to earn college credit while still in high school.
No On-Site Classes Nov. 23 - Dec. 2
We're taking a brief pause from in-person learning from November 23 - December 2. Families should watch for an email from each instructor with more details. Classes may meet over Zoom or a similar service, and/or teachers may provide video or other learning options. After this short break, we'll get back to the dynamic, interactive, face-to-face learning that characterizes Mid-Metro Academy, and we'll finish the semester on site according to our original schedule.
We Offer the Best of Both Worlds This Fall
If you’re looking for the best learning environment for your student this 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. Unless unforeseen events force us to meet remotely for a period of time, our classes will be in physical space—not cyberspace. If circumstances require it, we’re prepared to go virtual for a time, but we’ll be back on-site as quickly as we can. Our teachers can’t wait to be in class again.
Since our classes meet once a week, we’re already using the hybrid model that many school districts are considering due to coronavirus concerns. Our teachers use a flipped-classroom approach. 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 they 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 2020-2021 school year.
