Shattuck-St. Mary's Educational Services

SSM Educational Services (SSMES), founded in 2013, is a consortium of international schools and programs that offer a dynamic and academically rigorous learning environment modeled after the original flagship Shattuck-St. Mary’s (SSM) School in Faribault, Minnesota.


SSMES is led by Matt Cavellier as President and Nick Cobbett ‘85 as Chief International Officer. With the support of the SSM Educational Services Board of Managers, the team oversees new project development and coordination between operational schools and programs. 

Current Projects
International Curriculum Centers
SSM is contracted by two secondary schools in China to provide guidance on the implementation of their AP programs as the ICCs integrate these into the Chinese national curriculum.

Dual Degree Program
SSM cooperates with Tianyi Jiangsu High School in Wuxi, China to allow students enrolled in the DDP to receive an SSM diploma and a diploma from the host school upon successful completion of all the graduation requirements of both degree programs. DDP students also spend three weeks in the summer on the SSM campus.

Replicating the unique programs of SSM, SSMES schools have Centers of Excellence in the arts, academics and athletics. Each school features a weCreate® Center to inspire student innovation and adheres to the integrated ScholarShift® model that encourages students to explore their interests.
