Natural Science Academy (NSA) is a nature immersion tuition free public charter school. Located just minutes from Saint Paul and it serves grades K through 5.
Mission: Academic achievement through study and exploration of the natural world.
Science from the Start
At an early age, all children have the capacity and propensity to observe, explore, and discover the world around them (NRC 2012). These are basic abilities for science learning that can and should be encouraged and supported among children in the earliest years of their lives.

"Humans are natural born scientists. When we're born, we want to know why the stars shine. We want to know why the sun rises."
