Students come to St. Paul Prep to prepare for their futures while learning more about the world, and ultimately themselves. Our curriculum provides students with quality, college preparatory academics and enrichment through the arts and physical education. Our classes are taught from a culturally relativistic perspective and take advantage of the wealth of diversity within our student body. Through our course offerings, we meet the educational needs of a wide range of students, from those with limited English ability to those requiring substantial academic rigor. As an added benefit, St. Paul Prep students may be eligible to enroll in university courses during their 10th, 11th and 12th grade years. St. Paul Prep teachers share a passion for working with students from around the world. Our small classes allow faculty to provide students with individualized instruction. The majority of our faculty members hold a Master`s degree or higher, and many have professional career experience beyond the classroom. We truly care about the well-being of our students and offer them a safe, supportive, and nurturing environment in which to learn. We seek to provide students with opportunities for the development of self-awareness, social consciousness, leadership skills, and creativity through our enrichment activities, clubs, and study abroad programs.

Excellent education with peers from all over the world. A little known Twin Cities alternative to the typical American high school experience. SPP has been a great fit for our two boys.
