El Colegio High School is a public, tuition-free charter school located in south Minneapolis. Our mission is to build upon the talents of bilingual, bicultural students and their families to provide the academic rigor, leadership skills, college and career preparation, and community connections necessary to become lifelong leaders and change agents.
Our vision is that communities worldwide are transformed by the El Colegio experience of liberation.
In addition to our mission and vision, we are guided by four Core Values:
Identity: We support our youth and their families in recognizing and embracing their own unique histories, cultures, and languages.
Solidarity: We recognize that we all live in connection with each other; we must honor and support our youth to honor and embrace our communities.
Intellect: Success in life and community change requires critical thinking and a deeper level of consciousness.
Justice: We pursue our work not solely for the individual benefit of the youth and families we serve, but because we believe their role is critical in securing equity and opportunity for all members of society.
