About the Learning Program

The Monona Grove Liberal Arts Charter School for the 21st Century (MG21) strives to provide their students with the skills they will need as they walk their path in life. Ultimately, MG21 challenges its students to ask and answer the question: How do I want to live my life? In so doing, the teacher team hopes they will learn to take responsibility for their choices both now and in the future as they seek to be happy, successful citizens and individuals.
