2017 - 2018 School Year

Arcadia's Mission
It is the mission of Arcadia Charter School to prepare our students to transition intellectually, emotionally and ethically to higher education and future employment.  
Project Based Learning
Project-based learning helps each student notice and expand his or her own authentic learning process.  The staff of Arcadia Charter School believes that by completing projects students acquire problem solving, communication, planning, and independent learning skills.
Why Arcadia?
Arcadia Charter School is a supportive environment for students who want more independence and more responsibility for their education.
Application Process

Parents and students can apply for enrollment using the online enrollment application form or by printing and mailing the paper form to Arcadia.

Welcome to Arcadia Charter School

It is truly an honor to welcome you to Arcadia Charter School; a small community nurturing lifelong learners.  Please take a few minutes to check out our website and schedule a tour of our school.

Arcadia Charter School provides a choice in public education to 6th-12th grade students in Northfield and our surrounding communities.  Our project based school is free and open to all.  Innovative and exciting things are taking place here at Arcadia!  Students have the opportunity to individualize their path to graduation. Students create interest-driven projects in addition to attending classes.  Not only are our students required to meet all Minnesota State Standards, they are also responsible for additional credits through quarterly project work, a semester long junior project and a year-long senior project.  We are proud to offer a 16:1 student to teacher ratio and a 100% graduation rate.  We have a positive and collaborative relationship with Northfield Public Schools and participate with Northfield in many extra-curricular activities.
