Middle School (6-8)

At Minnehaha Academy we see the light that shines in each of our students.

Middle School is unlike any other time—it’s exciting and full of possibilities and growth. At Minnehaha Academy, your child will be encouraged to develop a sense of curiosity through learning experiences that foster independence, critical thinking, and exploration.

Students uncover their passions and faith through new challenges in academics, fine artsathletics, and co-curricular activities, while being surrounded by a caring and supportive community.

"Minnehaha is one of the greatest blessings in my life. Instead of being swallowed up in a big school, I am in a place where all of my teachers care about me as an individual. The Minnehaha community supports and facilitates my personal accomplishments and academic successes."
