In addition, a five-year implementation plan (2023-2028) has been created and will serve as a guideline to build academic programs. 

The new Secondary Executive Director of Education will join our team of educators in the summer of 2022 to help lead this expansion and provide effective instructional, administrative, business, and strategic leadership. 

The Secondary Executive Director of Education will be responsible for the following areas in grades 6-12: instructional leadership, programming, discipline and student behavior, student support, advising, fostering a mentorship at all levels, making recommendations to the PACT School Board of Directors, and overall effective operation of the Secondary school. In addition, this position serves under the policy direction of the PACT School Board of Directors and in accordance with federal and state laws. 

The ideal candidate is a leader with a proven track record of excellence in school leadership and management and is committed to leading with determination, integrity, and purpose. The Secondary Executive Director of Education will work closely and collaborate with the Elementary Executive Director of Education and the Executive Director of Operations.

About PACT Charter School


Our Mission 

To partner as parents, students, and staff to develop students of character and academic excellence. 


Location and Community

Located in Ramsey, Minnesota, PACT is a responsive, community-based K-12 public charter school built on a committed partnership between parents, students, and teachers. Together we are striving to achieve strong moral character and excellence in education. The teachers, administration, and students’ parents are the sole entity operating the school, and in a working partnership, they determine the curriculum, schedules, and programs. PACT focuses on core academics to prepare students for college and lifelong learning. 

PACT’s campus is located in the 420-acre COR Development near a park, amphitheater, and creek. Many parks and an extensive trail system are readily accessible and connected by a network of trails that link The COR to the regional parks and trail system. 

PACT is expanding to a second location in 2023, a few miles north of the current location near Central Park in Ramsey. The site is filled with beautiful landscapes, and current plans are for the school to be for Secondary students in grades 6-12. Grade 6 will have their wing, and then there will be a middle and high school at this location. Plans for an auditorium, football field, and track are part of the exciting plans for this location. 

Elementary students (K-5) will remain in the current PACT building, and there are plans for some remodeling. 

Both locations will allow PACT to double from 670 total students K-12 to over 1200 by 2028.
