    This school is warm and welcoming. It is advertised as Christian but is very accepting of people of all backgrounds, faiths and beliefs. The school is college preparatory and rigorous in its coursework, but not unmanageable. Minnehaha has many extracurricular activities including but not limited to sports. The school is extremely accommodating of students who need a little extra help whether that be with physical disabilities, psychological issues or other issues. The school could improve on its college counseling department. There are only two college counselors for the entire school, so they are extremely overworked and often don't have the needed time to give to each student. The upper school campus has been completely rebuilt in 2019 after a devastating explosion several years earlier. You were really able to see the school come together through the explosion. It showed the true "Redhawk spirit" (the school's mascot).

    Minnehaha Academy is a fantastic school on all levels! Teaching to the whole child (academics, art, athletics, spiritual, etc.) is of utmost important to the amazing faculty and staff at this PreK-12 school. Students are supported to grow and mature to their full potential while recognizing their gifts and talents that they can use in service to others. As parents of two current students and as educators ourselves, quality and rigor of a full spectrum education is of utmost importance to us. We would not hesitate to recommend others to attend Minnehaha Academy and be part of the beautiful community and family feel this school provides.
    Minnehaha Academy is an amazing institution that has prepared me for higher education. I use information learned at Minnehaha everyday at college! I have also met my best friends at Minnehaha, as well as many mentors that I am still in contact with today! Most importantly Minnehaha is a wonderful environment for your Christian faith to grow!
