This is a wonderful school that accepts all backgrounds and religions. My daughter loves her classmates and teachers.

Saint Olaf has been amazing for my Daughter. I knew she would struggle in public school, as she needs a little more individualized attention. She's thriving at Saint Olaf thanks to their smaller class sizes, amazing academic program, and caring/loving staff. The community is wonderful, and they are always keeping everyone involved and included. I would (and have) 100% recommended Saint Olaf.

Our daughter has attended St. Olaf's for the last 6 years and we've had a wonderful experience. The teachers and staff are excellent. The class sizes are small, which has been a huge benefit for our daughter. Being able to live her faith each day at school is the best. The school has a family feel and is very involved with the community. We know that she's loved and cared for each day and know she's getting an excellent education. There are now club sports for the kids to participate in as well as music and choir which our daughter has loved participating in.
