If you are new to the area or considering a move, you can confirm your residence is part of the Upsala Area Schools-ISD 487 boundaries by referencing the links above and/or by visiting the Minnesota Secretary of State's website and utilizing the poll finder tool.

Open Enrollment

Upsala Area Schools participates in the open enrollment program adopted by the state legislature.

Open Enrollment allows students in grades K-12 the opportunity to apply to attend school outside of the school district where they live. Families generally provide their own school transportation but additional arrangements are potentially possible. Upsala Area Schools welcomes students from many other districts in central Minnesota through our open enrollment option.

For further information on open enrollment or to obtain an application, contact Vern Capelle, Superintendent, at 320-573-2174 ext. 105.
