JOIN TODAY!

Fall semester begins on September 9, 2024, but now is the time to join MMA. Our registration for the 2024-2025 semester is now open for both returning and new families. 

Beyond traditional classes like English, math, science, and social studies, we offer many arts, technology, and career-oriented classes that you won't find anywhere else. Students can let their creativity blossom in our creative arts classes, and/or they can foster their practical side in our tech and career-oriented courses

High school shouldn't be one-size-fits-all. As a homeschooling family, you have the freedom to tailor your students' education to their skills, personality, aptitude, and interests. Whether your student is academically oriented or not so much--you'll find great options at Mid-Metro Academy.

"Start your side-hustle now!" is a great reason to take one or more of our career classes. After just one semester, students will be prepared to get hired as an employee or to enter the gig economy. They'll have what they need to start their own business as a bookkeeper, party entertainer, or online media producer. They can have their own small business--either in-person or web-based--while still in high school.

Registration for 2024-2025 opens May 1 for new families. If you're not already a Mid-Metro Academy member, join now!

Our NEW Location is Conveniently Located!

Mid-Metro Academy now meets at Advent Lutheran Church, 3000 Hamline Ave N, Roseville, MN 55113. Our easily accessed location is convenient to most parts of the Twin Cities metro area.

Just one mile east of Northwestern University, Mid-Metro Academy is located in a quiet neighborhood filled with single-family homes and parks.

Volunteers, students, and parents may park for free in our spacious lot.

Parents: We Make Your Life Easier!

Mid-Metro Academy exists to support parents in their family's homeschooling goals. The primary way we do that is by providing classes that you can't or don't want to teach yourself.

But there's more! We help you in lots of other ways, too.

We offer an on-site Parent Lounge where you can get your own work done while your student attends classes. That can cut your driving time and expense in half since you don't have to drop off, go home, and return to campus.

We share tips with our families on how to make class days more efficient--whether through carpooling or taking advantage of the amenities in our neighborhood.

We connect you with resources that help you plan for high school and beyond. 

Parents are welcome to enroll in some of our classes with students.

Taking Swing Dancing with your student can be a fun bonding experience. Our instructor, Joey Ray, adds spiritual and social applications to each lesson as he makes learning to dance non-threatening and uplifting. You'll walk away from class each week refreshed and affirmed!

Our Friday art classes are open to parents, so whether you want to begin the stress-relieving art of origami, learn various crafts, or develop your latent artistic drawing talent, you can get in on the fun and learning in Kathleen Sheridan's and Suzann Beck's classes. Adult members may take these classes with or without their students in grades 5-12.

Prepare Your Student to Thrive in the Gig Economy

What's the gig economy, and why should you make sure your student is ready to successfully participate in it? The gig economy is growing three times faster than traditional employment. It's quickly moving from a fringe segment of the U.S. job market to a mainstream option. 

Gig employment offers significant benefits like

  • flexibility
  • excellent balance between work and personal life
  • impressive job satisfaction levels.

And it presents the potential for three-figure incomes for those who excel in their chosen specialty.

Whether your student intends to use gig work as a side hustle or as an end career goal, he or she can get started now. Mid-Metro Academy classes help students gain both the soft skills and technical skills they need to succeed in today's--and tomorrow's--gig economy.

For more information, watch this presentation by Mid-Metro Academy director Rebecca Hope. 

We Offer the Best of Both Worlds in 2024-2025!

Homeschooling offers flexibility, ensures that students are educated in a way that's consistent with their family's values, and helps students become independent, lifelong learners. But when students enter their teen years, parents may feel less confident in teaching all subjects at home. And teens benefit from having teachers who aren't Mom or Dad. Our homeschool academy offers the benefits of homeschooling and attending in-person classes.

Since our classes meet once a week, students and families enjoy the flexibility and convenience of the hybrid/blended model that works so well with the homeschooling lifestyle. Choose to attend classes on one or two days: Mondays and/or Fridays. 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.

Now is the time to make plans for 2024-2025 school year. Classes begin September 9 and September 13, but register early to reserve seats in the classes you want. 

If you're intrigued by how our homeschool academy makes it possible and even easy to homeschool your student through high school but have questions, email [email protected]. We have room for you and would be delighted to discuss your personal situation.
