Our Charter School Uses Learning Strategies to Achieve Academic Success!
It’s no secret that there’s an achievement gap
in Minnesota schools. At Concordia Creative Learning Academy (CCLA),
our students are gaining academic achievement and positive life skills
in a unique learning environment that focuses on each individual student
and their learning styles.
Established in 1998, CCLA is a tuition-free charter school
located in Saint Paul, Minnesota on the East Side in the Phalen
neighborhood. We serve children in pre-kindergarten through eighth
grade, and we plan to add a high school in the future. The majority of
our students live in Saint Paul and the surrounding suburbs.
“Love Learn Achieve Succeed” motto is instilled in our students daily.
By providing a loving and caring community where students, family and
staff grow and learn, we prepare students to lead purposeful lives,
contribute to society and realize their dreams.
Joy in Learning
This begins with an individual learning plan,
developed for each student to help them reach their full potential.
Our literacy-based curriculum optimizes each learner’s potential for
academic achievement. Testing results in reading and mathematics has
repeatedly landed CCLA in the top “close the gap” schools.
Additionally, the Minnesota Department of Education has recognized CCLA
for having one of the largest gain in the percentage of students
scoring grade-level or better on the MCA-II test in reading and
mathematics since 2008.
