Laura Jeffrey Academy (LJA), is a Twin Cities tuition free charter school offering a unique year round, girl-focused educational experience, grades five through eight. Students learn through rigorous study, by asking questions, solving problems, and participating in the community.

LJA's interdisciplinary learning and teaching model provides girls with the experiences and skills that result in academic and personal success - girls who are critical thinkers and leaders.

“I love the school. It is challenging for my daughter, but she has found her voice at Laura Jeffrey. I have seen such growth in her.” -LJA Parent
