Schedule A Visit

Try it before you enroll! We will give you a personal tour of the campus and pair your student(s) with a current student with similar learning styles and interests.

At the time of registration, students will need:

  • A current report card
  • A school health record and a physical exam form, which is available from the current school’s principal or current school. (In keeping with the Minnesota State High School League guidelines, students participating in any sport, cheerleading, or dance team must have a physical exam before the school year or practice for the sport begins, and those physicals are current for three years);
  • If requested, a letter of recommendation from either your school principal or pastor; and
  • A nonrefundable registration fee
" Excellent school offering so many opportunities, both in and out of the classroom, all in a very caring, Christian environment. My daughter and son both went on to Big 10 schools and were prepared academically and socially. "
