Creative Inspiration Journey School, a tuition-free public charter school in St. Cloud, approaches the charter-school model differently than others in the community.

Creative Inspiration Journey School was founded as an early childhood educational program inspired by the groundbreaking Reggio Emilia Approach to learning.
What began as a small movement in the town of Reggio Emilia in post-war Italy, soon emerged as one of the world’s foremost childhood learning systems with a strong emphasis upon community, individual respect, and social responsibility.

The Reggio Emilia Approach allows children to direct the learning process according to their own needs in a less-structured environment that gives students the chance to grow at their own pace both as individuals and community members.

Based upon these principles, CIJS in St. Cloud creates a warm and caring environment where children love to learn through guided self-discovery, imagination, and creativity—while interacting with others in a friendly and safe atmosphere.
