St. Croix is a fully accredited secondary educational institution with highly-qualified instructors. Seventy-three percent of our teaching staff hold advanced degrees. The student-to-teacher ratio is 13 to 1 and the average class size is 20.

We offer a college-preparatory curriculum during a two-semester school year. Students take core classes to meet graduation requirements and participate in a variety of electives. With courses in basic, accelerated and advanced placement, 27 college credit offerings, and a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) program in cooperation with the University of Minnesota, our students are well prepared for their post-secondary education. They consistently score above the Minnesota state average on the ACT and SAT college placement exams, and ninety-five percent of SCL graduates pursue college or university degrees.
