2018-2019 Enrollments!

We are now accepting student enrollments for the 2018-2019 school year. You may enroll at www.mn.iqacademy.com and create an account in the Parent Portal. This will trigger a call from the K12 admissions team. They will request you to upload documentation for your student. Once the level of information gathered is sufficient, your child's online enrollment application is sent to the school where the registrar will approve the enrollment. You will then receive a welcome email from Andrea Berge (aberge@iqmn.org), explaining the next steps.

PLEASE NOTE: The time frame for the enrollment process may vary based on individual circumstances. It may take as little as a few days days to a couple of weeks before your student may begin. Our staff will need to gather records from your previous school, order supplies for shipment, and address other questions/concerns that may arise prior to the official start day.

Required Enrollment Form

Our school district requires us to gather from every student the Home Language Survey. This form tells us the name of the student and what languages are primarily spoken in your home. If you haven't been contacted to complete this form, please complete one, save it to your computer, and email it as an attachment to our school registrar, Andrea Berge.

Withdrawal Process

Withdrawing from iQ Academy?

If you decide iQ Academy is not for your child after you have enrolled with us, please contact us at the school so we are informed and can get your child's records sent to their new school. It's great to also inform your child's homeroom teacher, but you need to either call, kmail or email our Registrar Andrea Berge at aberge@iqmn.org or 218-998-0544 x9214.
