PACT opened in 1994 as a K-7 school with 84 students. In 2003, we built a new building to accommodate our growing student population. In 2023, grades 6-12 will move to a new second campus just 2 miles north of our current location.


Located in Ramsey, Minnesota, family life is valued here. Just 22 miles north of downtown Minneapolis, it’s a growing community with an extensive trail system and access to the Metro and Northstar transportation systems.


PACT has a 4-day school week policy with roots in our history, and we typically have non-school Fridays! (more like Fri-yay!) Teachers use non-school Fridays for grading, professional development, and team meetings.


Black, red, and white, we fight, fight, fight! Home of the Panthers, we celebrate school spirit on the last school day of each week. 


Employees get free admission to campus activities, including sporting and theatre events. It’s a great way to support our students outside of the classroom!


With only 177 contract days, we have fewer than our neighboring districts. Our schedule provides a good work-life balance.

PACT is expanding and opening a Secondary Campus in the fall of 2023. The new location will expand our program offerings, build extracurricular programs, and increase our reach and reputation in the community. Our Elementary Campus will undergo a remodel summer of 2023.
