Learn Online or On-Campus

At Athlos Academy of St. Cloud, we understand that each family must make the schooling decision that is right for their family. As we considered our back-to-learning plans, we wanted to offer as many safe, consistent, and convenient quality learning options for families. That’s why we are offering two unique learning avenues for families to choose from: On-Campus and Online Learning. We’re here to help families make the best possible decisions this school year for their individual needs.

Athlos Academy is a K-8, tuition-free, public charter school in St. Cloud, Minnesota. We are offering on-campus learning to anyone in the areas surrounding St. Cloud, and distance learning opportunities to any student living in the state of Minnesota. Here’s a look at our programs.

Return to School Safely

We’ve taken every precaution to assure our school fosters a safe and engaging on-campus experience by working with local and national health departments and developing and implementing robust school opening procedures and plans.

We’ve also put together resources for families to help their children with the transition to on-campus learning. One example is our resource 7 Tips to Help Students Start School During COVID-19.

A highlight from this resource is teaching kids the big 3: stay two arm’s length from others, stay home if sick, and wash hands often.

Athlos Online

This program includes live Zoom classes and opportunities to engage with peers through Athlos programs like our Athletic Movement Classes and Classroom Huddles.  Athlos Online is adapted from Athlos’s on-campus, innovative education model.

Our online learning program not only offers a high-quality, easy to follow curriculum and learning environment, but also gives student the interaction with their peers that they need. We also have accommodations for students who need extra support or an extra challenge. Our virtual students have access to everything a student learning on campus would, including technology.

Our comprehensive online learning program is also now an opportunity to any K-8 student living in the state of Minnesota. That’s right, anyone in the state of Minnesota can apply.

 Here’s what families had to say about online learning with Athlos.


“I love that my daughter can do her schoolwork at our convenience… I love that her teacher had reached out and does Zoom calls three times a week.
It gives us some normalcy.”

–Athlos Parent


“Zoom class meetings and the teachers recording lessons/story time. I also have been SO impressed with a couple of our teachers who have gone above and beyond dropping things off for the kids and planning special events.
It has really helped!”

–Athlos Parent


“The teachers are very interactive and make learning easy for students and parents.”

–Athlos Parent


“Love the amazing effort the teachers are putting into creating creative content for the kids to continue to learn despite not being in the building. We also love the Zoom class sessions with their teachers. They still get to see their classmates and have the teaching time with their teachers.”

–Athlos Parent
