Cokato Elementary's mission is to provide an enriching education experience for all children. We create an environment that helps children reach their maximum potential. Our school community works together to prepare each student for continued personal growth and responsible citizenship. We are proud to offer each student a comprehensive educational program which meets the needs of all children. At Cokato Elementary we also reflect the values and priorities of our community, parents, and students.
Dassel-Cokato Early Childhood Center
Dassel-Cokato Early Childhood is here to help guide parents/caregivers of young children during these critical years by supporting families and giving children opportunities to discover and learn along with their parents/caregivers.
Dassel-Cokato Area Learning Center
The Dassel-Cokato Area Learning Center offers an Independent Study Program in the evening and an Alternative High School Program during the regular school day. The ALC is open to students from Dassel-Cokato and neighboring districts. The day program includes all of the basic academic required courses. There are many options available to students who qualify including full-time ALC classes, ALC classes and work program, and part-time ALC/DC High School with classes at both sites.
Work is underway as students prepare to start the 2021 school year in a new space.
The Dassel-Cokato Middle School program is designed to meet the special needs of middle level students. The program strives to be transitional in nature, providing students the "bridge" between the self-contained classroom of the elementary school and the departmentalized curriculum of the high school.
HOPE Homeschool Co-op
Providing opportunities for purposeful education, we are a group of homeschool families that gather on a bi-weekly basis throughout the school year. We have classes for our 2 to 13 year olds in music, physical education, art and discovery. The teens are offered a variety of classes from science to home economics. Registration opens in the spring.
Dassel-Cokato has a wonderful Community Education department that provides lifelong learning experiences for people of all ages, abilities, and cultures through programs and services.
