St. Paul Preparatory School is proud to be a Cognia (formerly AdvancED) accredited school since 2004. Cognia is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that accredits primary and secondary schools throughout the United States and internationally. Currently, Cognia represents more than 36,000 institutions with a total of 25 million students and 5 million educators in about 80 counties.
In 2003, the idea for St. Paul Preparatory School was conceived. The plan was to establish an international high school in Minnesota where students from all over the world could study together with local students.
St. Paul Preparatory School (SPP) believes that culture, finances, and location should not be barriers to receiving a world-class education
The goal of St. Paul Preparatory School (SPP) is to prepare students to achieve professional success in the global community and to become leaders with broad perspectives and high expectations for themselves and others.
Online Classes by SPPS occur live with the teacher. Classes include direct instruction and a modular teaching system where teachers choose differentiated learning activities for students. This modular teaching system allows the teacher flexibility while keeping the students engaged in online learning.
In addition, just like our partner school on campuses around the world, our primary focus is creating engaging lessons delivered by qualified and professional teachers with the supervision and support of Saint Paul curriculum specialists. With this in place, at the core, our program begins with high quality lessons from teachers who are masters in their field. They will provide the instruction and assessments necessary for students to experience the benefits of an International education.
