DaVinci Academy offers an enriched learning experience utilizing the Core Knowledge Curriculum and Singapore Math in Kindergarten through fifth grade. DaVinci Academy utilizes SpringBoard®, the official Pre-AP® program from the College Board®, that provides rigorous instruction in English language arts and math for students in grades six through 12. We recognize that a successful academic experience is dependent upon our individualized approach to learning. Data from frequent assessments and test scores allow DaVinci Academy to recognize each child’s strengths and weaknesses across the curriculum. By collecting this information, DaVinci Academy staff and students are able to work together promoting proficiency and challenging students to their fullest potential.
DaVinci Academy offers a full year of science and art for all of its students - along with many other enrichment activities offered both during and after school. The families of DaVinci Academy show a strong interest in promoting the school’s success by dedicating their time and volunteering for many activities throughout the year.
DaVinci Academy is a year-round, tuition-free, public charter school located in Blaine, Minnesota.

The dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called “truth”.
