WELCOME TO ST. PAUL ACADEMY AND SUMMIT SCHOOL!

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 team with questions. We look forward to meeting you!
