What makes us unique?


Achieve Language Academy is a prekindergarten to 8th grade school located on the banks of the beautiful Beaver Lake. Surrounded by walking trails and Beaver Lake Park, Achieve is a contemporary school building where students can enjoy inside and outside learning opportunities.

The Achieve campus houses over 450 students, all who have the opportunity to become literate in two languages, English and either Hmong or Spanish. In partnership with students and families, staff create individualized learning plans to help guide students in their growth and build upon successes. Learning at Achieve does not just happen during the school year – we provide an extension to the school year with our summer programming.

Achieve understands that schools are an important part of the greater community and that we all benefit when we serve others in our neighborhood, city and society. Our students are integrated into the greater St. Paul community during Beaver Lake Clean-Up, Feed My Starving Children, Achieve's Culturefest, and Starbase.

Achieve has been a welcoming community for over 23 years, and staff work collaboratively to create a positive and productive child-centered environment. It's fun and caring – the best place to be – which is evident by the longevity of our staff. We invite you to learn more about our staff on our classroom pages.
