Cologne Academy and Cologne Academy Online are committed to providing Excellence in Education.

Cologne Academy is a tuition-free K-8 public charter school located in Cologne, MN and online to ALL Minnesota students.  This year we are celebrating our 16th Year of Educating Scholars! Cologne Academy is driven to providing a well-rounded, quality education built on these five cornerstones:

  • Individual Student Achievement
  • Character Development
  • Enriched Curriculum
  • Parental Involvement
  • Low Student to Teacher Ratios

Cologne Academy supports our staff as they go about the essential work of educating our children.  

Help us meet our goal of $30,000 by November 16th.  Online giving starts November 1 and continues through GIVE TO THE MAX DAY, 11/16/23.  We also encourage the automatic monthly giving option, it is a convenient option that helps you continue to support our school year-round.  

This year's Give to the Max contributions will go towards building a foundation for the future of our school and students.  Every dollar counts; Cologne Academy appreciates any amount.

Cologne Academy is a public charter school in Minnesota.  Like all Minnesota public schools, educational dollars are continually being stretched as the state government borrows public school dollars to balance its budget. Cologne Academy scrutinizes each dollar that is spent and focuses its expenditures back on student achievement causes.   Additional fundraising efforts are used to support our academic rigor and achievement endeavors.  Cologne Academy thanks you for your support.
