Our Charter School Uses Learning Strategies to Achieve Academic Success!

It’s no secret that there’s an achievement gap
in Minnesota schools.  At LIFE Prep, our students are gaining academic achievement and positive life skills in a unique learning environment that focuses on each individual student and their learning styles.

Established in 1998 as Concordia Creative Learning Academy, LIFE Prep is a tuition-free charter school located in Saint Paul, Minnesota on the East Side in the Phalen neighborhood.  We serve children in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade and a the majority of our students and families live in Saint Paul.

Our Philosophy
Our “create your own path...” motto is instilled in our students daily.  By providing a loving and caring community where students, family and staff grow and learn, we prepare students to lead purposeful lives, contribute to society and realize their dreams.
