We have two children who attend Liberty and have been so impressed with the quality of education that they are receiving. Children at the elementary school level learn how to stand before a large audience and deliver a speech; they learn not just how to read but the grammar and phonics rules that support reading; they learn about all major eras in history, from ancient times to medieval and Renaissance to the modern era--and they do all of this with God at the center of their learning. The God of scripture is in every class--from Art to Math to English to Phy Ed.--the faith element is incorporated into every subject! We are excited to have our kids at Liberty and look forward to them moving through the whole program and someday graduating from here. We could not imagine sending our kids anywhere else!

Our two children graduated from Liberty Classical Academy, and both of them would say they were exceedingly well-prepared for college and life. They know how to research, write and speak, and best of all, they can think deeply about subjects and come up with insightful opinions or ideas. That''s what sets them apart as leaders. All of these skills were acquired and honed at Liberty, where class sizes were small, teachers could be mentors, and the curricula was challenging. My husband and I couldn''t be more grateful for this unique and God-centered program!

This will be our 4th year at Liberty. We feel beyond blessed that our children are able to attend this school. We feel at peace sending them off everyday to a school that reinforces our values and provides an outstanding education. My children have been taught and cared for by wonderful teachers who are truly concerned with building their character. Due to the small class sizes, my kids get the attention they need and have developed lasting friendships with their peers. We would highly recommend this school!

Having my children attend school at Liberty Classical Academy has been a huge benefit to our whole family. We are so impressed with the depth of learning that our kids are immersed in. They are learning to think openly and critically - skills that will benefit them for a lifetime. They enjoy the challenges the teachers set before them. Having had students in the lower school, the middle school and the upper school, I have been so happy to see how much interest their teachers take in them individually at every level. As we are beginning to think about college choices, I am sure this will be a great foundation for them to build on in higher education.

I have a daughter in kindergarten and a son in second grade. Liberty offers challenging academics coupled with a wonderful learning environment, including small class sizes and warm and caring teachers who get to know the students and families very well and care deeply about their progress. The curriculum also promotes the development of character traits and leadership qualities as well as critical thinking skills. Oral presentations and public speaking are strongly emphasized throughout the school year; my 8 year old is not nervous at all getting up in front of a large group of people are reciting a poem or presenting the findings from a science project. On top of this, they also learn about God and develop a moral, ethical and theological framework from which to build their worldview. It is reflected in all aspects of their teaching and woven throughout the curriculum--not just "Classical Learning plus Bible." This is what sets Liberty apart from other private, Christian, or charter schools available in MN. It is a truly integrated approach. My children are thriving, they absolutely love Liberty and look forward to school every day.
