The enduring success of Groves Academy stems from almost 50 years of experience working with students with learning disabilities and attention disorders. We understand that to be successful, we need to address the intellectual, social, and emotional aspects of learning in all of our students. We recognize that while we need to target a student’s weaknesses, we must also nurture that student’s strengths.
Our extracurricular programs strive to enhance emotional, physical, artistic, and intellectual growth. Opportunities are provided to develop and practice leadership, sportsmanship, fellowship, teamwork, character building, communication skills, competition, and school pride.
“Everybody makes everyone feel included in everything we do here.”
Activities and Clubs
Extracurricular activities at our school at Groves Academy provide students a chance to explore interests outside of academics. Most activities are offered on a rotating basis each trimester so students have access to a variety of programming. Activities are offered in the areas of technology/science, games/hobbies, arts/design, sports/wellness, as well as an optional daily study hall.
Athletics at our school at Groves Academy give students opportunities to develop leadership skills, practice good sportsmanship, and discover the importance of teamwork. We are a member of the Eastern Minnesota Athletic Conference (EMAC) and affiliated with the Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL). There are no formal tryouts and all interested students are eligible to participate.
