Our Dual Language Program

Aurora Charter School (ACS) is a dual language program, although unique to most dual language programs in Minnesota. ACS’s program is unique in that typical dual language programs in Minnesota are programs are composed of native English speakers learning a second language with the goal of bilingualism and biliteracy by the end of the program. ACS serves a population of primarily native or heritage Spanish speakers with the majority of parents being Spanish-speakers as well. The end goal of bilingualism and biliteracy are the same for both types of programs.

Give MN

“Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.”
Margaret Fuller, American journalist and rights advocate

We believe the students at Aurora Charter School in Minneapolis, like all students, deserve the best education to lead them on a path toward the most productive, successful lives possible. A critical foundation to that success is having the ability to read—and having access to excellent books and reading material.
With that in mind, we are gathering donations to build a library for Aurora Charter School. We invite you to be a part of this life-changing project.

Environmental Education

Dear families,

Last week our Kindergarteners had the opportunity to go to the Maplewood Nature Center where they took an outdoor walk and learned a lot about the environment, nature and the species that live in our state.
We are committed to the environmental education and ecological awareness of our students.

Emiliano Zapata's grandson

Hello families,

Yesterday our students had the opportunity to have a conversation with Emiliano Zapata's grandson. Mr. Manuel Manrique Zapata was telling us a bit of his grandfather's story and the students had time to ask questions.
Without a doubt it is a great pride to be able to offer this opportunity to our community of Aurora.

Sin duda un gran orgullo poder brindar esta oportunidad a nuestra comunidad de Aurora.
