We love our school. Great people from the top of the administration to the kids entering kindergarten--thanks to great parents.

Liberty is an AMAZING school. They hold academic excellence to a very high standard and still keep a focus on the Christian world view and how it applies to every area of study. I have seen my daughter grow by leaps and bounds into a Christian young woman who can intelligently defend her faith. She is so much more than just prepared for college.

For Christians, run from any place that Talks the Talk but doesn't Walk the Walk.

After 4 years of teaching music at Liberty Classical Academy, I have become more and more impressed with the level of achievement the students are reaching. I believe the small class sizes, highly qualified teachers, and most importantly, the Christian environment, create an atmosphere that fosters amazing results. This school is taking ordinary kids and achieving extraordinary results.

Liberty Classical Academy is the school that I wish would have existed when I was in school. Students are learning age appropriate and in-depth materials at all age levels and the curriculum is integrated and sequenced into the larger scope of the program itself. Our students are challenged in their learning, yet supported to think critically. Staff and teachers really do care about each student and their well-being emotionally, academically, socially, and spiritually. Students at Liberty have opportunities that exceed that of most other schools in the area. The school sends teams to Haiti during Spring Break to serve and experience real inter and intrapersonal growth. Liberty students are highly sought after by colleges around the nation because they are equipped and prepared for the rigor and academic challenges of higher education. Scholarship offers average over $23,000 per student and ACT scores average in the top 13% of the nation. SAT scores average 27.13 for Liberty students compared to 23.0 for Minnesota as a whole and 20.9 nationally. My only regret related to Liberty is that I couldn't attend experience this great education for myself.

My child spent a year at Liberty and we spent most of that year wondering if we should pull her out. Though the elementary school seems excellent, there is a reason there are only about 2 dozen kids in the high school. Though there is some fine teaching from a few staff, the leadership is very muddled about their philosophy of education and their influence in the kids' lives. Questions were deflected and concerns not addressed. It's simply not a healthy emotional environment. I waited to write this review until we had some distance and a comparison with another school. My negative assessment has not softened with time or further encounters. This school started with a good idea that deserved better care and execution.

Our son just started attending the PreK program and he loves Liberty. He is excited to go to school and we have seen so many developments in his learning in the few short months that he has been in attendance. The teachers and school staff have been so welcoming and so caring. He has gotten the individual attention that he needs and we feel like that has helped his development.

Liberty Classical has a great deal to offer and can be an outstanding education. The tuition is relatively affordable compared to some other private schools but is higher than most parochial or church-affiliated schools. Uniforms are required and the dress code is strictly enforced. The school community has a good group of involved parents to support the activities and class sizes tend to be small. Generally the weaknesses are in communication and openness - and the high turnover in the student body reflects this. The school is also generally not accommodating of students with any sort of special needs.

This is an amazing school. The teachers are so dedicated to the students and the support and individual attention my child has received is so appreciated. The teachers truly care about the students and their emotional, social and academic growth. I highly recommend this school.

I have a daughter in kindergarten and a son in second grade. Liberty offers challenging academics coupled with a wonderful learning environment, including small class sizes and warm and caring teachers who get to know the students and families very well and care deeply about their progress. The curriculum also promotes the development of character traits and leadership qualities as well as critical thinking skills. Oral presentations and public speaking are strongly emphasized throughout the school year; my 8 year old is not nervous at all getting up in front of a large group of people are reciting a poem or presenting the findings from a science project. On top of this, they also learn about God and develop a moral, ethical and theological framework from which to build their worldview. It is reflected in all aspects of their teaching and woven throughout the curriculum--not just "Classical learning plus Bible." This is what sets Liberty apart from other private, Christian, or charter schools available in MN. It is a truly intergrated approach. My children are thriving, they absolutely love Liberty and look forward to school every day.
