MG21, Monona Grove Liberal Arts Charter School for the 21st Century, is a project-based public charter school which serves 75 students in grades 6 through 12 in the Monona Grove School District. Our mission is to provide a student-centered educational community for independent learners which is designed to give students the skills to walk their path in life. Our programming focuses on relationships, project-based learning, meaningful engagement and academic skills that help students explore and move forward on their personal and educational path. Students who thrive here are curious, self-directed learners who enjoy inquiry-based learning in a smaller educational community.
MG21 has a Middle Campus that serves students in grades 6-8 and an Upper Campus that serves students in grades 9-12. Our focus is on 21st century skills utilizing a combination of thematically integrated curriculum and student led project-based learning.
Collaboration and critical thinking skills serve as the focus of the MG21 curriculum. Partnerships with local businesses, organizations and community members offer opportunities for hands-on and individualized experiences. MG21 encourages students to “take control of their education.”
The foundational pieces of the MG21 program are:
We have developed a systematic approach to education that views each student as a “whole person,” whose needs must be met and reflected within a curriculum that is student-centered. The ultimate purpose of education, from our view, is to teach students to ask and answer the question: “How do I want to live my life?”
