Welcome to St. Paul Academy and Summit School!
Welcome to St. Paul Academy and Summit School! SPA is an independent K-12 school with two beautiful campuses in the heart of Saint Paul's Macalester-Groveland neighborhood. 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: at SPA, Lower School classes average 13 students, Middle School classes average 15 students; and Upper School classes average 14 students. We invite you to discover what makes SPA so extraordinary: our curriculum; the diversity of our community; and above all, our mission: shaping the minds and the hearts of the people who will change the world.
