Why your contribution matters

It takes a village to prepare our kids for life and its challenges today. As a tuition-free, public charter school, Nova receives fewer dollars per student each year than traditional public schools.  Even with this challenge, Nova supports and hires the very best staff and keeps our classrooms small. Nova brings cultural impact, appropriate technology, and exciting programming that cultivates the whole person. We maintain a level of education that you can find only in private institutions. 

But how do we do this?

How do we keep this momentum going?

The answer is simple. YOU. The support and donations of our community matter. We are in this together. It's a beautiful thing.

Nova scholars need your support.  

Each year, we either improve or stay stagnant. It's up to you.  

Our community has impacted so much already! The amazing athletic field, Chromebooks for efficient testing, Playworks (building life skills through play), scholarships for Upper School travel and activities, public speakers and assemblies, and much, much more!

They need you. Donate today.

Great Thoughts, Inspiring Great Thinkers

Nova Classical Academy is a K-12, public charter (tuition-free) charter school. Nova offers a rigorous academic and virtue education (justice, temperance, prudence, fortitude, and wisdom). We believe public speaking, critical thinking, strong values, and college preparatory skillsets put us on top. U.S. News, MN Dept of Ed, and many other organizations also put our kids on top. Our scholars study both the accomplishments and the mistakes of historically important figures and apply these lessons toward creative solutions in today's world.

Non scholae sed vitae discimus. We learn not for school but for life.

Sustain lifelong learning
