Programmatic Focus

Classical education


Nova Classical Academy is a K–12 charter. Nova opened in St. Paul in the fall of 2003 with grades K–6 and added grades yearly toward our goal of providing a complete K–12 education. Nova’s first class of seniors graduated in the spring of 2013. In 2012, after renting spaces for nine years, Nova built a new facility in Victoria Park which houses the full K–12 program.
