Why the focus on student achievement?  View the presentation to learn about the social and economic ramifications of our current student achievement level.


Student Achievement Minnesota LLC (SAM) operates exclusively to authorize charter schools.

Inspired by the outstanding results achieved by organizations such as the New Schools for New Orleans and the Uncommon Schools, SAM's focus is charter school programs which are demonstrated to significantly increase student achievement. And SAM's expectations are high -- it holds schools accountable not only for student academic results, but also for schools'  fiscal and operational performance.

Student Achievement Minnesota LLC does not limit the charter school applications it solicits, considers, or approves to any single curriculum, learning program, or method.
