St. Croix Catholic School
Founded in 1856, St. Croix Catholic (SCCS) is fully accredited through the Minnesota Nonpublic School Accrediting Association (MNSAA) and is a Catholic school of the Archdiocese of St. Paul & Minneapolis. The school educates students from preschool through 8th grade. Its preschool program, Ark of Angels, is unique to the St. Croix Valley in that it combines two time-tested concepts into a single education experience for preschoolers: faith-based education and Montessori-driven learning. The school’s K-8 traditional curriculum is aligned with and exceeds national and state standards. SCCS hires licensed educators with expertise in the field. The Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia also serve at the school with Sister Maria Ivana, O.P. in the position of principal. SCCS is affiliated with the local Catholic parishes of St. Michael and St. Mary of Stillwater and St. Charles of Bayport, Minnesota. Enrollment is open to students of all faiths. St. Croix Catholic School’s mission is to unite with families to form students as scholars, disciples and servant leaders. In 2012, St. Croix Catholic was the first Catholic school in the state of Minnesota to assume Project Lead The Way, the nation’s leading science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (S.T.E.M.) curriculum. In 2014, St. Croix Catholic School worked with the world renowned Havard Virtuous Leadership Institute to establish a virtues-based middle school leadership program. In 2017, the school invested in Institute for Excellence in Writing and in 2019, the school implemented nationally recognized FOSS Science materials, K-8.
