Spring 2020: Admission and distance learning

Welcome to SPA! Whether you are a newly-admitted student or just beginning the admission process for fall 2020, we are glad you're here.

Because we can't welcome you to campus right now, we have created a series of brand-new tools to help you understand what makes SPA so special.

  • Connect with us! Although our campuses are physically closed, we are eager to meet with you and your family, give you a virtual tour, and answer any questions you might have. Click the "Schedule Remote Conversation" box on this form for available days and times to connect!

  • Our Admission Virtual Visit Hub is a collection of videos, photos, and publications just for newly-admitted and prospective families to explore.

  • Our Distance Learning website provides an overview of our academic programs in all three divisions during Distance Learning. 

  • We also encourage you to visit our Spartan Online Hub, our online space for the entire SPA community (including you!) to be together during distance learning.

Please explore all the wonderful photos, videos, and opportunities to connect in all three divisions, and don't hesitate to reach out to any one of our Admission staff with questions or just to say hello.


At SPA, we work hard to deliver the tangible elements of an exceptional educational experience, but what makes our school unique is intangible. Parents and students tell us that they feel a particular kind of energy when they walk through our doors: an openness and warmth that reflects our values and our culture.

This is made possible by the lowest average class size of comparable independent schools in Minnesota; our talented and experienced faculty; an innovative and rigorous K-12 curriculum; and above all, our mission: shaping the minds and the hearts of the people who will change the world.

We hope you'll visit us and experience our extraordinary community in person! In the meantime, don't hesitate to contact any one of our Admission staff with questions. We look forward to meeting you!
