Pickin’ for Autism brings together a vibrant local music scene with a unique school and community. Lionsgate Academy is a public charter school, dedicated to serving students on the autism spectrum during their transition years, grade 7 through age 21.  Lionsgate provides an individualized education rooted in best practice that serves students’ unique strengths and needs.  In their quest to be a leader in innovative education, they need financial support to provide students with the resources to find their place in the community. Currently Lionsgate has a 200+ waiting list for students. With two campuses in Minnetonka and North St Paul, Lionsgate is expanding to another campus in East St. Paul to provide more opportunity for these families.
