MITY’s day and residential programs build skills and attitudes for lifelong success. MITY empowers eager 1st - 11th grade students to recognize and grow their unique talents through innovative classes and a welcoming environment. Our interdisciplinary, hands-on curriculum challenges students to collaborate with diverse peers to generate creative solutions to real-world issues. MITY ignites curiosity, expands knowledge, and nurtures future leaders.

For over 57 years, MITY has attracted bright students in grades one through eleven 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.

MITY offers over 100 unique STEM, humanities and fine arts courses that are specifically designed to meet the needs of advanced learners. Classes cover topics not typically taught in schools within a fun and challenging environment.
