Our vision to have every student prepared for college is bold and highly aspirational.
College readiness does not start in high school. Every level of our district – from early childhood to high school – must be aligned to this vision of college readiness.
The goal of the 12 x 12 project is for each student to earn 12 college credits by the end of 12th grade.
The Minnesota Private College Guide includes general information about Minnesota private colleges as well as a one-page profile on each institution. It closes with a grid showing where more than 140 undergraduate majors, minors and concentrations are available.
