Click Here for the letter from DREAM staff explaining the distance learning plan that we have come up with.
If the governor should state that schools will be closed for the remainder of the school year, this will be your student/s school. Expectations are laid out for staff, students and parents/guardians as we move into this new form of learning.
In staying with our weekly/daily schedule, the entire school gathers together on Monday mornings. We would like students to gather with the staff via zoom at 8:15am on Monday, March 30. A message will go out to students and parents via our messaging system and the link to join the zoom meeting will also be shared with students.
If you should have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us. You can call the main school line at 320-262-5640 or via email.

Take care,

DREAM Technical Academy Staff

“Where serious people go to broaden their minds and learn to live the rest of their lives.”

This sentence encapsulates our educational mission here at DREAM. We aim to build a community of learners who are dedicated to expanding their experiences and challenging ideas that are taken for granted. By supporting and encouraging each other in our day to day learning, we will be shaping the next generation for active participation in our democracy. Through this growth, students will learn the skills necessary to be successful individuals in a rapidly changing future!

“I love that DREAM allowed me to be myself, which allowed me to find myself. I feel like DREAM has really made me ready to be an adult and have a successful career and life.”

A student-driven, small learning community

  • Hands-on, student directed learning and discovery

  • Project-based learning opportunities focused on life skills

  • Autonomy and belongingness

  • College readiness, career preparedness, and civic engagement

  • One to one technology

  • Extra-curricular activities offered through CCS

  • A caring, safe culture that values a Restorative Justice philosophy

  • Our students’ interests drive their learning environment, which leads to high levels of ownership, engagement, and hope. Daily opportunities for critical thinking, collaboration, and exploration foster a natural love of learning in students that goes well beyond the school walls. Students also learn the value of citizenship as they work side by side with our leading community professionals.
