Why Shattuck-St. Mary's?

Your child’s education is one of the most important decisions you will make as a family. At Shattuck-St. Mary's school, we understand the multitude of factors that go into finding the "perfect" school for your child, and our Admissions team is here and ready to help every step of the way.

With our innovative curriculum that includes our ScholarShift® program, weCreate® Center, and nine Centers of Excellence, and with the finest teachers, mentors and coaches, our school has so much to offer students as they prepare for—and build—their own exceptional futures. Continuously recognized as Minnesota's premier boarding and day school, with an A+ rating for Academics, College Prep, and Diversity from, our school not only prepares our students to further their education, but we nurture young people from around the world into students of integrity and acceptance. Many of our graduates go on to excel at some of the nation’s premier colleges and universities, as well as distinguish themselves within their chosen field of expertise.

While academics is a key factor when deciding on your child's education, we believe that a child's happiness, safety, and sense of belonging is equally as important. At Shattuck-St. Mary's we provide our students access to a variety of Clubs & Groups, Activites, Sports, Weekly Outings and more to ensure that every student has access to an activity or club that they are passionate about. Whether it’s an on-campus yoga or painting class, an EDPA Group meeting, or venturing off campus for some hiking or shopping, our Student Activities Director is always finding new activities for students to engage in.

We look forward to connecting with you and your family as you explore all that Shattuck-St. Mary's has to offer.
