About the Learning Program

Augsburg Fairview Academy offers a teen-friendly, and family-friendly, atmosphere in which students are deeply respected and everyone is held to a high standard of personal honor. Students find their place among people who care a great deal about them and their future. They encounter adults who use positive, strength-based approaches to help them succeed. Students are given a great deal of trust and independence with the expectation that they will, in turn, conduct themselves as responsible and self-directed learners.
