OUR CURRICULUM

At Harvest Prep, we are working to build strong foundations to help students in north Minneapolis graduate from high school, go on to graduate college, and successfully transition to a career. We use a “gap-closing” educational framework, and our scholars spend 25% more time in school than students at a typical Minnesota public school.

OUR ACADEMIC MODEL 

We improve academic achievement and exceed the academic performance for low-income and socially-disadvantaged students at areas schools through: 

  • a high-expectations/no excuses culture
  • a rigorous curriculum
  • highly-qualified, effective teachers 
  • great principals and school leaders 
  • eight-hour school day
  • an extended school year
  • an after-school program 

AN ACADEMIC DAY

The academic day is focused on ensuring our scholars are academically on track and have opportunities for enrichment. An academic day consists of:

  • Writing
  • Mathematics
  • Social Studies
  • Character Education
  • Reading 
  • Science
  • Music or Gym

Interim assessments are implemented weekly and results used to brainstorm how to better support scholars' learning.
