Venture School

We often hear that Venture School is a student’s favorite part of Venture Upward!

This weekly onsite, drop-off program allows kids to learn together with other Venture students. Experienced and enthusiastic instructors engage students in four interactive extracurricular classes each week. Topics can include anything from locally-significant traditions, messy science experiments, art, cooking, music, Spanish, money management, geography, and more.

Currently, Venture School locations are planned in the following areas: Northern Twin Cities, Farmington, Buffalo, Dassel Cokato, St. Cloud, Albert Lea, and Worthington. *Other locations are still being considered.

Community Service:
Helping students learn to improve and support their own communities is an important part of our program. Venture School staff help students coordinate service opportunities for your entire family throughout the year. A minimum of two service opportunities will be organized each school year.

Please note that this portion of our program is not affiliated with either of our MN partner schools and is open to all Minnesota K-8 students; please email us at to find out how your family can join us at Venture School!
