Enrollment – Schoolcraft Learning Community (SLC) enrolls approximately 200 students in grades kindergarten through 8. Because of our small size, we are able to maintain a caring community for our learners.
Class Size and Structure – Average of 20 students in all grade levels. Grades 2-7 are multi-aged.
Faculty – More than 30 men and women; all of whom are highly qualified.
Student-to-Faculty Ratio – Averages 8:1 schoolwide.
Student Life – As the only EL Education school in Northern Minnesota the primary method of instruction at SLC is through learning expeditions. Learning expeditions are long-term, in-depth investigations of a theme or topic that engage students through authentic research, projects, fieldwork, service, and adventure. Using the integrated approach, students receive instruction in music, piano in grades K and 1, art, physical education, and social emotional learning. Band is also available for grades 4-8.
Meal Program - All students are offered a balanced breakfast and a delicious lunch each day. Students and staff are treated to many different ethnic varieties of foods. Schoolcraft Learning Community does participate in the free and reduced lunch program. Students may elect to bring lunches from home. Check out our menu!
Campus & Facilities – SLC is located on 26 acres of beautiful woods, just 10 miles north of Bemidji. We have access to lots of northern Minnesota outdoors as an important part of our classroom environment.
