Download the Podcast: EdVisions Schools
EdVisions Schools, a Minnesota non-profit corporation has been helping create and sustain a network of small, innovative high schools around the country for the past nine years. Our flagship school, the Minnesota New Country School (MNCS) and the EdVisions headquarters are located just outside the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area in Henderson, Minnesota. MNCS, established in 1994, has been highly recognized for its efforts in closing the achievement gap. Despite over half the students currently qualifying for free or reduced lunch and a 40% special education rate, 100% of the students have passed the Minnesota Basic Skills Test. 91% of the school’s alumni have gone on to post-secondary education (79% graduating from college).
Our mission is to help change schools and schooling by establishing high-tech, project-based high schools that demonstrate fundamental differences in teaching, learning and leading which will provide meaningful options for students, parents and educators and lead to greater success and increased post-secondary attendance.
