Minnehaha Academy is a private Christian school providing students with a strong spiritual and academic foundation.
Since 1913 Minnehaha has been changing lives through the integration of faith and learning.
From preschool through grade 12, Minnehaha educates the whole person - mind, body, and spirit.
At the earliest age, teachers help students develop a love of learning.
As they grow, students are encouraged to maximize their potential in the classroom, in the arts, and on the playing field.
Minnehaha provides an excellent college preparatory curriculum, but more importantly, provides an environment that values academic achievement.
Through Bible study, regular chapel services, and the guidance of faculty and staff who know and love God, students are given a moral compass for their lives.
Minnehaha Academy’s mission is to provide high quality education integrating Christian faith and learning.
We seek to lead students to commit their lives to Jesus Christ and see the importance and implications of His Lordship for whole and effective Christian living.

- In the Lower School, we are committed to the development of the whole child – academically, emotionally, physically, socially and spiritually. Students in kindergarten through grade 5 embark on a journey that literally takes them around the world. Each grade focuses on a specific continent, where they learn about its culture, arts, society, politics, people and how that continent fits globally.
- Our students not only literally move up (from the first to second floor of our Lower and Middle School campus) but also figuratively with a more challenging academic curriculum. Comprising grades 6-8, we want students to feel loved and empowered in a Christ-centered environment where they can become explorers, leaders and scholars. Middle schoolers at Minnehaha Academy thrive, not just survive, during this critical developmental period because our teachers embrace all the unique personalities and create an environment where there’s virtually no bullying. That sense of connection, safety and community allows every student to reach for their very best.
