Student Enrollment at ASA

ASA is a tuition free public charter school that enrolls students on a lottery basis.  That means we will accept your student(s) until the grade is at maximum capacity. Once that happens, we begin a wait list until the slot opens. The wait list for the following year is determined by a lottery system, and then first-come-first-serve. 

Why Choose ASA?

We are the premier option north of the Twin Cities for students with a particular interest in the arts and science. We are a small charter school that is focused on art and science integration into every part of the cirriculum. Being a smaller school, our teachers have autonomy to customize cirriculum for their class that you won’t find in traditional public school. 

Where Does ASA Service?

We utilize Cambridge-Isanti’s transportation system, so if you live within the Cambridge- Isanti district, your student(s) can ride the bus to us! If you and your student(s) are outside of that boundary, the responsibility of transportation lies on the parent/guardian. ASA accepts students from anywhere in the state of Minnesota.

Does ASA Have Meal Services?

Yes, ASA contracts with a food preparation company, Trio, that delivers both breakfast and lunch to the school on a daily basis. ASA provides FREE breakfast and lunch for all students, however we request that each enrolling family completes the Educational Benefits Form (commonly called Free & Reduced Form), as ASA receives academic funding based on the completion of the form.
