Our Faculty

Our Upper School teachers blend a passion for teaching with disciplinary expertise and a genuine compassion and affection for the young adults who are their students. Upper School students largely view their teachers as subject experts and mentors rather than authoritarian figures, a view that makes the ultimate transition to college much smoother.

80% of our Upper School teachers hold advanced degrees in addition to the baccalaureate degree, and almost half of those teachers hold a doctorate or terminal degree in their field of study.

Other Information
Julie Friend joined the SPA community in June 2016 after earning her Bachelor of Science degrees (Sports Management and Broadcast Journalism) from St. Cloud State University. During her time at SCSU, Julie gained experience as an administrative assistant at St. Cloud Technical Community College and Robb Stauber’s Goalcrease. She also played on the SCSU Division I women's hockey during her collegiate career. Last year, she spent time in Salzburg, Austria playing professional hockey and, this year, will be the goalie coach for the St. Paul United girls' hockey team. “I’m very excited to be here," says Friend. "I look forward to interacting with the SPA community and working with our Spartan student-athletes.” Outside of SPA, Julie enjoys spending time with family and friends, and playing/watching as much hockey as she can.
