Fine Arts
At Minnehaha, you can always find a place to belong. We showcase 20 performing groups
providing opportunities for every age and ability level in band, orchestra, choir, and drama.
Minnehaha students are invited participants at Minnesota All-State music ensembles every
year. Encouraged by Minnehaha’s emphasis on artistic development, Upper School musicians have performed under the spotlights of the Orpheum and Carnegie Hall, and displayed their talents while traveling internationally. Our state-of-the-art performance center welcomes large audiences and can also host “Black Box” productions, for more intimate crowds.

The Antler yearbook and The Talon student newspaper consistently receive All-State honors and rank among the top 10 publications for the state. Films created by Minnehaha students win state contests regularly.

Our Middle School students “pull out all the stops” with theatrical productions that enchant
local audiences. Even the voices of our Lower School students have soared through the
National Anthem at Minnesota Twins and Timberwolves games. Amazingly, these paths
are only a few of the options that talented Minnehaha performers have pursued year after year.

Athletics
Athletics are an integral part of a well-rounded education at Minnehaha. Like every activity and program, we promote athletics within an environment of building Christian character. Minnehaha gives everyone a chance to participate. We offer varsity, junior varsity, and Middle School interscholastic teams. Along with excellent coaching, opportunities for leadership and developing close friendships, our sports program provides excellent facilities for training and competing. Our Athletic Center is one of the finest in the area.

 

Our students know how to collaborate to make great theater. They are passionate and know that by helping and praying for one another they can affect the greater goal of telling dynamic stories.
