Summer 2020: Admission and distance learning

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

  • 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.

  • Visit the Admission Virtual Visit Hub where we have gathered a collection of videos, photos, and publications for newly-admitted and prospective families to explore. On the Virtual Visit Hub you can also take a virtual tour of the Lower School (K-5), Middle School (6-8), and Upper School (9-12).

As you explore, please 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!
