Pursuing Academics and Character Together.

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 provides a positive, safe learning environment for each student. Our goal is to instill a life-long love of learning and the ability to learn how to learn. We are a public charter school open to any student in Minnesota. There is no tuition charged, and transportation is provided within the Anoka-Hennepin district boundaries. We have more than 650 students from kindergarten through grade 12 plus extensive extracurricular opportunities.

PACT helps your student develop a strong sense of self-worth and respect for others and the world around them. We encourage them to recognize his or her ability to contribute something unique to our society.
