November 2017. Stillwater, MN. The Greater Stillwater Chamber of Commerce joined the St. Croix Preparatory Academy community to celebrate the completion of their new athletic facility on November 20. The event took place at the new facility and included SCPA leadership, staff, multiple outside teams who planned and implemented the project, and local business owners.
St Croix Preparatory Academy is a K-12 Charter School with a focus on academic rigor. Their educational philosophy is based on the classical methodology of grammar, logic, and rhetoric an educational philosophy proven to achieve outstanding results. Established in 2004, the school has steadily grown from a few hundred students to nearly 1200 students today. For many years they have maintained a long waiting list for students, primarily due to their track record of exceptionally high academic performance scores. The school is on a 59-acre parcel of land, and since their initial build for the school in 2008/2009, they added on new classrooms and a performing arts center in 2013, and have just completed the new athletic facility in 2017.
The new multi-use activities center addition is a stadium-style athletic facility that includes an eight-lane track, synthetic field which is lined for football, soccer, and lacrosse, and practice fields, as well as a refurbished courtyard & playground. The facility will enable the expansion of the school’s physical education curriculum, and relieve space constraints on the current indoor gym. Much of the new facility will also provide a great gathering space for the St. Croix Prep community of students, staff, families and community members.
SCPA is a member of the MCAA athletic conference and will be hosting boys and girls basketball games throughout the winter season. More information on the school’s athletic and other extracurricular programming can be found on their website.
