Public Tuition Free Charter Schools

Providing innovative educational opportunities and develop career pathways for 7-12th graders

WHY CHOOSE TECHNICAL ACADEMIES?

Technical Academies of Minnesota (TAM) will provide students in grades 7-12 with an individualized learning program that includes career preparedness, college readiness, and community partnerships and opportunities, in a project-based, staff-led school.

Technical Academies’ educational program has four main characteristics based on EdVision’s Design Essentials: small learning communities, Co-generated project-based learning, authentic assessments, & teacher professional practice or leadership.

PROJECT BASED LEARNING

Project-based learning (PBL) is built on the idea that there are better ways for some students to learn and grow. The focus of PBL is to help shape students into self-reliant learners with a mastery of 21st century skills.

We have found that the key to success isn’t based on how much a student can memorize, but rather if they are able to set reasonable goals, create a plan to meet those goals, and then follow through on that plan. In a world where the jobs available post-graduation may not even exist today, this is an immensely valuable ability.

OUR VALUES

Our Mission at Technical Academies is to provide innovative educational opportunities and develop career pathways for young adults in partnership with the public and private sector. The technical academies will seek to fulfill the talent needs of industry and service.
Our Vision is to create technical academies that foster competencies, creativity, confidence and purpose resulting in successful leaders and citizens for Minnesota’s future.
