Institution Description

In 1995, we began with one school, the Minnesota Transition Charter School, and have since grown into a collaboration of nine learning options – each having their own focus and personality. Like our programs, we know that each child is unique with their own set of strengths, interests and needs, and we want to build on these. It’s a one step at a time process – one success that builds on another until they have reached their goal.

MTCS integrates the use of restorative practices, the Nurtured Heart Approach, and trauma informed schools to build strong foundations with our students.
