SPA will be closed Tuesday, January 23, due to the snow and hazardous driving conditions. Please note that school will be closed entirely on Tuesday, including all classes, athletics, and extracurricular activities. We do not make this decision lightly. Like you, we would much prefer our students to be in school, but today’s extreme weather makes travel unsafe for everyone.
Thank you for your understanding, and please stay safe.
Bryn S. Roberts
Head of School
Seven members of SPA's Class of 2018 have been named National Merit Semifinalists. The Semifinalists are:
The seven Semifinalists represent 7% of this year’s senior class; nationally, less than 1% of high school seniors are awarded Semifinalist recognition. SPA consistently ranks among the top high schools in Minnesota for percent of class recognized in the National Merit competition.
The seven will now have the opportunity to advance to the Finalist level of the competition, which requires the submission of an application and essay, an outstanding academic record, endorsement by the high school principal, and SAT scores that confirm the student’s earlier performance on the PSAT. Congratulations to all our National Merit Semifinalists!
