TEAM Academy Charter School

Blue Ribbon TEAM

TEAM Academy  opened its doors in the fall of 2004.  At TEAM we focus on academic excellence, post-secondary attainment, and a culture of respect and responsibility.  Every year we take our students to visit a college.  We want them to know what a college is and visualize this goal.  All of our students start the day by saying the TEAM Academy Creed, and they participate in a character education program every day.  We individualize learning as much as we can during reading and math for our students.  Students are taught in small groups and participate in an individualized learning program on the computer.  This helps all of our students be challenged at their own level.

In addition to the core subjects our students get to experience art and Spanish classes.  We also offer an after school program to all of our students.  The program runs for an extra hour after the regular school day is over.  Extra curricular programs offered to our students include student council and school patrol.  Fifth and sixth graders can participate in band and choir.  We offer a free extended day program from 7:00 a.m. to 5:oo p.m.

We cater our lunches from a local restaurant in Waseca.  We strive to offer healthy lunches for our students because we know how important eating healthy is to each child’s overall development.  All students who attend TEAM Academy receive free breakfast, snack, and lunch every day.

We were named a 2012 Award School by Minnesota Department of Education, and a 2012 Blue Ribbon School by the Federal Government.  We have received the School Finance Award and the NEO Stewardship Award in Finance.  Our school is authorized by Novation Education Opportunities.
