"My dad, brother, husband and I all attended Minnehaha Academy. We loved every minute of our experience and came away with an excellent education. Our daughter graduated in '14 and says Minnehaha set her up beautifully for college. We couldn't be happier for the gift of this school for our family."

Student merit aid varies and this year ranged from $10,000 per year to full-ride scholarships. Merit based scholarships are not required to be paid back. Additional scholarships were awarded based on academic, athletic, artistic, and leadership/service.
