CHOICE is the second school opened by Technical Academies of Minnesota (ISD 4217), a charter school district authorized by the Minnesota Department of Education and Innovative Quality Schools.  CHOICE teachers are members of the EdVisions Cooperative.  The school is affiliated with EdVisions Schools whose mission is, to create schools that will enhance relationships and build relevant learning environments that empower students, parents and teachers to make choices. These learning environments utilize self-directed, project-based learning to build student autonomy through relevant learning opportunities; create student belongingness through full-time advisories; and empower teachers via teacher-led and democratically governed schools. To create engaging schools of this nature requires EdVisions to engage in dialogue concerning the nature of learning and assessment that aligns with whole-child development rather than academic achievement alone
