Fraser Academy, a year-around, charter elementary school, will open this fall in Loring Park's Basilica of St. Mary's education building.
The school, 1601 Laurel Ave., will open for kindergarten through 2nd grade this year, and expects 116 students, said Chris Bentley, the school's startup director. It will expand to K-5 in three years, adding a grade each year.
Fraser Academy is a public school, but
operates independently of the Minneapolis School District under a charter with St. Cloud University.
