In Minnesota, students and their families/guardians have a wide range of meaningful school options beyond the traditional, neighborhood school.
Please see the information below about Open Enrollment and Homeschool.
The St. Michael-Albertville School District welcomes non-resident students through Minnesota’s Enrollment Options Program. Over 1000 open-enrolled students from 17 different Minnesota school districts call STMA Schools home. We welcome them to our tradition of excellence and look forward to carrying out our mission of creating self-directed learners, purposeful thinkers, effective communicators, and responsible citizens. If you live outside the St. Michael-Albertville Public Schools district boundaries, please apply for open enrollment.
MN State Statute 124D.03 Enrollment Options Program requires a pupil's parent or guardian to submit an application to the nonresident district. The pupil's application must identify a reason for enrolling in the nonresident district.
Completed forms may be submitted by:
