Groves Academy is Minnesota's only established independent day school specifically serving children who have dyslexia, ADHD, or similar learning differences.
Founded in 1972, Groves Academy educates students in grades 1-12 of average to above average intelligence who have been misunderstood due to their learning disability and doubt their own ability to succeed.
The curriculum at Groves Academy is presented using evidenced-based, multi-sensory methods that address students' individual needs. Emphasis is on building academic skills, particularly in reading, writing and math, and developing strategies for success in school. Groves Academy also offers a rich array of extracurricular activities including drama, music, robotics, soccer and basketball.
