Mission Spotlight: Presentation Night Wrap Up

It is the mission of Arcadia Charter School to prepare our students to transition intellectually, emotionally, and ethically to higher education, future employment, and engaged citizenship.

Arcadia Charter School envisions a supportive learning community that, through collaboration and student-driven, project-based learning, encourages and assists students to:

  • Express themselves creatively through the visual, literary, and performing arts.

  • Use technology with innovation, imagination, and responsibility.

  • Develop critical thinking and creative problem solving skills.

  • Construct knowledge and meaning for themselves.

  • Value, advocate, and strive for the wellness of the whole person.

  • Be empowered to act as local citizens within a rapidly changing global community.

We had a wonderful Presentation Night last Friday night! Thank you to all of the students who presented, the staff who supported them through their projects and their presentations, and all of the families who came out to celebrate their accomplishments and learn from them! Friday night was an excellent example of all of us in the Arcadia community actively working together to fulfill our mission.  



You may have noticed that our website has changed! We are still in “phase one,” which means we are still ironing out some pieces. For example, if you try to load it on your phone, you will find that it’s not yet mobile ready, and on a computer, the picture on the front page is still inconsistent in loading. However, if you look at the menus, I’m hopeful that you will find everything that you need is available through the website. If that’s untrue, please call or email Laura (507-663-8806 x217; with suggestions and requests.


We will be talking quite a bit about fundraising in the next month, with “Give to the Max Day” on Nov. 14th, and ThanksGive on December 6th. Keep an eye out for more information from me about both of these major fundraising events!
