Program Description

El Colegio Charter School is a small public high school in Minneapolis that has been serving students in English and Spanish since 2000.

El Colegio engages students in challenging, profound learning experiences that integrate research-based teaching strategies with Latino culture and traditions. We provide a supportive and personalized environment so that students are known well and are individually supported to meet the challenges of high school and beyond.
