A Letter from the Principal

Upper school principal Jason Wenschlag

Dear Parents,

We are thrilled to welcome you back to Minnehaha Academy for the 2020-2021 school year, and I offer a special welcome for those new to our community.  As you can imagine, our faculty and staff are working tirelessly to prepare for an exceptional learning experience, and in a learning environment that is safe and healthy for all. In addition to the comprehensive plan you received from the School, below is more information specific to the Middle School.  Keep in mind that our planning and preparation will continue to evolve, but we are passionate about our mission and excited to support our students and their learning.  I will reach out again with a more formal welcome letter and updated information as we get closer to our August 27th start date.

Minnehaha Academy has thrived through some difficult circumstances in recent years, and God continues to bless this community and bring wonderful families with whom we get to partner.  We are going to have a great year and I cannot wait to see your kids in person…mask and all!

Jason Wenschlag
Middle School Principal
