I have been going to St. Croix Lutheran Academy since the seventh grade and have enjoyed every year I have attended. I am currently a junior and still enrolled at St. Croix. I participate in many activities at St. Croix, such as Varsity girls basketball, Night To Shine, New Friends, Track and Field, a summer program titled English buddies, I am a homeroom leader, and have been involved in much more throughout my past years. St. Croix offers countless opportunities for students nearing their higher education in college. It has prepared me for the next level of my education and continues to push me academically, physically in sports, and, most importantly, spiritually. I am thrilled I can go to school every day in a safe, loving Christian environment with people I trust and who care for me. If you are looking for a school that educates the total student with compassion and care, then St. Croix is a great option. I wouldn't change a thing.

My life has changed a lot since I entered high school. My schedule is very busy as I try and balance Theatre, Global Leadership Team, Choir, Sports, Jazz Band, Singing for Church, Traveling to China, NHS member, family life, social life, and much more. The thing I could not live without is singing. I have fallen in love with singing ever since I was a young child. I have competed for three years in a regional and state vocal competitions (all of which I earned the highest rating for), three choral festivals, 3 years of my traveling/audition-only choir, an all-conference choir festival, and I also help around at school and church leading songs and worship very frequently.
I think St. Croix is a great place for Christian education, but it does not offer classes that prepare you for college or assist you on the right track of your possible career and major field. The teachers are kind and interested in their students but are not always well-trained and knowledgable in their field of teaching. The study hall supervisor is absolutely disrespectful to students she does not like, yet favors and gives special treatment to her favorite students. St. Croix houses many students from all over the world, which I think is a great cultural aspect of the school.
