Letter from the Principal
The Upper School at Minnehaha Academy is a place where students are able to build life-long friendships in a school environment that reflects the high value we place on strong academics and an equally strong sense of community.
Students are challenged to work hard academically, to grow in their faith and personal relationship with God, and to make positive contributions to the school through academic excellence, involvement in leadership opportunities, service projects, athletics, and fine arts.
With caring adults who hold high standards for students in every area of school life, the Upper School provides a unique environment for students to learn and grow during their high school years.
I am excited to be a part of this school community!
Nancy Johnson, Upper School Principal
