• Fargo Public Schools will open the Self-Directed Academy in August 2024 for students in grades 6-8 for the 2024-25 school year. The school is now open for student registration for fall.

    The Self-Directed Academy combines in-person and online learning and is tailored for independent learners who benefit from technology-integrated, self-paced education. The school will be housed at Agassiz. 

    The academy differs from the traditional school model families are accustomed to in our Fargo school. The instructional model at the academy is built on the principle that learning should be self-directed, competency-based, and not confined by traditional time constraints. Learn more about the new school in the video below.
