NEWSBRIEF: UMA charter school going to downtown St. Paul

Upper Mississippi Academy, a charter school focused on collaboration, community engagement, creativity and discovery, announced it’s moving from its current location on Osceola Avenue in St. Paul to a significantly larger and centrally-located space at 19 E. Exchange St., in downtown St. Paul. This follows the sale of the Exchange Street property to UMA’s new landlord. The school will sign a multi-year lease.

It will share the building with the Minnesota History Theater, a current and longtime tenant, and will occupy space vacated by McNally Smith College of Music over a year ago. 

As of the 2019-2020 school year, UMA will serve students in grades six to 12. After the lease-signing, the space will be renovated to support UMA’s unique and compelling brand of collaborative student teaching and learning. The enhanced size will accommodate the school’s growth projections, and its close proximity to institutions centered on government, art, theater, science, media, world cultures and culinary arts will offer rich and meaningful educational experiences.
