Who We Are

Growing Learners. Growing Leaders.

Hiawatha Academies is a network of public charter schools in Minneapolis serving students from kindergarten to 12th grade. We create a K-12 school experience that empowers students with knowledge, character, and leadership skills.

By nurturing scholars’ character and leadership qualities, in addition to realizing their academic potential, Hiawatha Academies is developing young adults with rich lives, as contributing members of our society.

Our schools

We’ve grown over time from a single K-4 school to a network of elementary school, middle schools, and high school.
