WE ARE A FREE MINNESOTA PUBLIC CHARTER SCHOOL FOR STUDENTS IN GRADES 6 – 12
At Terra Nova, students will foster their knowledge, love and respect for the environment while promoting sustainability for future generations. This teacher-led school is located in Buffalo, Minnesota in the heart of Wright County.
Allowing students to design learning experiences based on their own unique interests and passions encourages them to be self-motivated, independent thinkers who are capable of solving problems, thinking critically and who are prepared for post-secondary options and the workforce. Personalized learning plans are designed for each student.
Project-Based Learning (PBL) gets kids excited about learning by tailoring learning opportunities to match their interests. Students pursue their passions and academics at the same time by earning credit for projects they design.
Families, community members and local experts are actively engaged in the students’ learning on a regular basis. Service Learning encourages students to connect to the broader community. Teachers take pride and ownership in the school thereby making decisions that benefit the entire learning community.
