St. Croix International Students

Located on 30 acres overlooking Thompson Lake, a few minutes from downtown St. Paul, Minnesota, St. Croix Lutheran offers a university-preparatory program of education for grades 6-12 that has a reputation for excellence in a friendly and safe environment. While maintaining high academic standards, St. Croix Lutheran supports a portion of its 500 students through its English as a Second Language (ESL) program. Students are challenged and supported by master’s level instructors and benefit from an average class size of 20 that offers a student-to-teacher ratio of 13 to 1. This structure enables matriculation to top universities in America

Approximately 150 of our boarding school, including junior boarding school, students live in our on-campus dormitory while the remaining students travel daily from the Minneapolis / St. Paul area. Thanks to tremendous constituent support, our high quality program is affordable at a lower cost than other schools with similar advanced academic programs.

International middle school boarding students in grades 5-7 can Experience the Middle School through a two or five-week program January through February.

St. Croix's Summer English Program is a three-week learning interactive between American and International students. The St. Croix Group Experience provides school groups of 10-30 students with the opportunity to visit classrooms and experience activities during the regular school year.

Join a community of lifelong learners where talents are developed in the classroom, on the athletic fields, and in the concert hall to become productive citizens and leaders in an increasingly global society.

"St. Croix is a great school because they care about students. They provided me with a caring community and a supportive system which I desperately needed because I was far from my home and family."  Daniel Yan, 1999 SCLHS Valedictorian, Cornell University, Senior Business Executive at Capital One.

" The spiritual focus at St. Croix has given me a stronghold in my life. I am able to go to God in times of success and failure. "
