More than just a team on the ice, students at Bauer-Emerson will also be part of a cohesive group of like-minded students who play and learn together.

Students will also receive an unmatched level of personal assistance and guidance at the school from Minnesota-certified instructors that hold teaching licenses, Bachelor’s or Master’s degrees. Direct instruction for each student is provided by on-site educators maintaining a ratio of 1 instructor per 15 students.
As part of its nurturing environment, the Academy will also offer a mentorship or “buddy” system that pairs older students with younger ones to help integrate them into all facets of the Academy. Broader life experiences will also take students outside the classroom, including community service and public speaking. The Academy will also offer labs, group projects and other enrichment opportunities dovetailing the school’s academic program with more traditional environments.
In addition to Tier 1 teams, the school’s Squirt and PeeWee teams will also have an opportunity for top competition by competing in MN Hockey, the nations leading community program, via it’s affiliation with North St Paul Area Hockey Association.
Bauer-Emerson will sponsor its AAA teams before and after the season as well, with continuing opportunities in the summer.
Beyond helping each student to develop their talents on the classroom and on the ice, the Academy will uniquely equip them for success in hockey careers that extend beyond playing the game. Through presentations and mentorships with hockey-related professionals, students can explore a variety of career opportunities directly associated with hockey, including management, training, development, front office and sports marketing.
Hockey training will take place at nearby Polar Ice Arena, Aldrich Arena, Vadnais Heights Sports Center, and other local arenas and rinks as needed.
Classes will begin September 2, 2014, with orientation held August 26-28.
