“Teachers at LJA open their hearts and minds to inspiring kids to learn. I was pushed and encouraged to be my best self."

Laura Jeffrey Academy (LJA), is a Twin Cities tuition free charter middle school offering a unique STEM-focused, girl-focused educational experience, grades 5 - 8. Students learn through rigorous study, by asking questions, solving problems, and participating in the community. LJA's interdisciplinary learning and teaching model provides students with the experiences and skills that result in academic and personal success - students who are critical thinkers and leaders.

Our promise is to provide an educational environment where students are free – to explore their potential, develop their intellect, and discover their brilliance. 

   Julia, Katherine, Cassus, and LJA teams talk about their Technovation experience!

Become a part of our journey and story, as we continue to provide space for scholars to become the leaders of a better tommorrow.
