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 inspire and challenge intellectually curious students to pursue their passions within a diverse, inclusive community and empower them by building skills and relationships for lifelong success.

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.

I invite you to read about each of our unique programs to see how your child can benefit from the opportunities that we provide. A MITY-fine experience awaits.

Our Purpose

MITY provides 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.

What It's Like To Attend MITY

MITY provides a safe, welcoming environment where bright and motivated students can come together and be their unique selves. Students from all over the Twin Cities and beyond form life-long friendships as they collaborate to address real-world challenges, play games, and explore exciting topics at a stimulating pace. For the really quirky, smart kids who dare not to be themselves during the school year, MITY is the sanctuary where they can fly their real flag, relax, and be themselves.
