About Us

New Millennium Academy (NMA) is located in Brooklyn Center, Mni Sota Makoce (Minnesota) where the original stewards of the land are the Dakota people. 

NMA is a KG-8 charter school founded in 2005 to serve the growing needs of the Hmong population in the Twin Cities and currently serves approximately 800 scholars. In 2016, NMA relocated from Minneapolis to a brand new building in Brooklyn Center. NMA offers a standards-based education that is complemented with a Hmong secondary language curriculum.

Our Values

Modeling The RHINO Way

New Millennium Academy believes in the RHINO way.

The RHINO way stands for (R)espect, (H)elp, (I)nspire, (N)ever give up, and (O)vercome.
