Five prestigious colleges honored Minnehaha Academy students with book awards, presented at the end of the school year.
Middle School French students have acquitted themselves very well again this year on Le Grand Concours (the National French contest).
Oh the places they'll go!
The class of 2019 wasn't afraid of a little hard work, as evidenced by this year's Senior Honors Night. We're confident that each of these awards demonstrates much more than an Upper School achievement...the character and diligence that lead to the award is the foundation needed for future success. Congrats, Seniors!
Minnehaha Academy Upper School Latin students joined over 150,000 students worldwide taking the National Latin Exam and brought home twenty-nine total honors!
Reading this year’s list of senior honors might fool you into thinking academics and leadership are easy: over 70% of the students graduated with honors, with 30 of the 78 graduating “With Highest Honors” (GPA of 3.8 to 4.0).
Had you walked the halls these past few weeks as students took AP calculus exams, rose early to watch their research project rocket towards the International Space Station, and put the finishing touches on their final musical performances, you would see that these students take their work seriously.
Two special people from the Minnehaha Academy community were recently recognized for their positive impact and dedication to the School.

This celebration recognizes the excellence found in Minnesota’s private and independent school community.
Minnehaha Academy Upper School language students scored well in both the National Latin and French Exams.
