Due to the pandemic, MITY has cancelled all of its in-person programs for summer 2020. Instead, MITY is excited to announce that it is offering unique online learning opportunities for students entering grades 1 – 12 in the fall. These classes will use the same inquiry-based, hands-on model as our regular programs and provide motivated students with meaningful learning challenges as well as a way to connect with like-minded peers. Details of these opportunities can be found under “Online Programs.” If current ExplorSchool and EYM families choose not to enroll in MITY’s online classes, they can receive a full refund.
Stay safe, MITY-Finers!
Making a Difference
For over 50 years, MITY has attracted bright students in grades one through twelve from throughout the Twin Cities and around the world, inviting them to embrace their intellectual curiosity in a stimulating environment. Our mission is to offer a dynamic educational experience in which talented students explore their passions and are challenged to grow on an academic, creative, and personal level.
MITY offers unique STEM, Humanities, and Fine Arts courses in three exciting academic programs, each taught by master teachers. Students dig into new topics, stretch their thinking, develop non-cognitive skills, and meet a diverse group of people who share their love of learning. MITY’s safe, inclusive climate fosters a feeling of family among students and staff, empowering participants to be themselves and shine in new ways.
Who we are
MITY seeks to provide capable, inquisitive students with an inspiring experience that challenges them to dream big and explore new possibilities. We offer an array of academic classes to engage multiple interests, talents and learning styles, stimulating young minds to apply their learning in new ways. Students are free to perform without the pressure of grades, often collaborating with other eager learners to achieve extraordinary results.

A MITY Fine Attitude
A MITY Perfect Combination of Academic Challenge and Fun!
MITY offers much more than rigorous curriculum – its educational philosophy is to develop students not only academically, but physically and socially as well. Students enjoy fun recreational activities that foster friendships, build teamwork and generate opportunities for peer support and leadership development. Students are free to embrace their true selves, take risks, and experience the true joy of being a part of the MITY family.
