Crosslake Community School opened its doors in 2000, with a kindergarten-8th grade seat-based model. In August of 2014, the school expanded to include 9th-12th grade students at the request of former and current families. In order to meet the needs of potential students, the Board of Education decided to offer an online model as well.
The online learning model gives students the flexibility to pursue personal activities while completing the required courses to receive their high school diploma. Students need to be motivated, hard-working and dedicated to the online model.
Our staff surrounds them with encouragement, academic assistance and support in an effort to ensure no student falls through the cracks. Due to the success of our online learning, we grew to offer online courses to students grades kindergarten-12th. Crosslake Community School can serve full-time or part-time (supplemental) students throughout Minnesota, and we accept students up to the end of the school year of their 21st birthday. High school graduation occurs each year at the end of the school year.
Seat-based learning also offers a fee-based pre-kindergarten learning in addition to its tuition-free kindergarten-8th grade learning.
Crosslake Community School is able to offer students a way to connect to the first stewards of our land by intertwining environmental education at each grade level.
