Programmatic Focus

Positive learning environment, enhanced by agriculture & technology


To create a positive learning environment for general education enhanced with agricultural concepts and electronic technology to benefit student, school, and community.


Opened Fall, 1999; Lafayette Charter School is located in Lafayette, MN, in Nicollet County. We serve students from the surrounding geographic areas, such as New Ulm, Gibbon, Fairfax, Winthrop, Brownton and Courtland. LCS began in 1999, when a group of concerned community members came together to ensure that their community would continue to have a school. Our cause is to teach today's students to be good stewards of the land and be educationally prepared to enter today's society. With our focus on agriculture, our students learn the importance of the rural community around them and how integral it is to everyday life. Their technology education prepares them for the technological world that surrounds them. Through our character education program, our students learn the importance of being good citizens.
