Upper Mississippi Academy (UMA) is located in downtown St. Paul within sight of the Minnesota State Capitol.  We serve students in grades 6-12.  Our community is actively engaged in deconstructing systems of bias in all areas so that all our students can learn in an engaging environment to prepare them for being world citizens.  We seek staff, students and community partnerships who enhance our representational diversity and whose teaching, learning, and community engagement efforts contribute to a diverse, equitable, and an inclusive environment for all of us. UMA condemns racism and prejudice in all its forms and therefore promotes inclusion in all forms. This is evident in our ongoing organizational work that moves beyond mere statements to vetting its policies, procedures, and practices. As we recruit students and staff, we hope to identify people who will assist in our mission to dismantle all bias so that everyone has the opportunity to succeed at UMA.
