. Scholastica

St. Scholastica is an independent private college with locations across Minnesota, including our original campus in Duluth. When the College opened in 1912, it had only six students. Since then, enrollment in our undergraduateԻgraduate programs has flourished. In the last decade alone, it has grown from 2,200 to 4,000, due to St. Scholastica’s continued commitment to offering high-quality education, especially in our online programs which broaden access to higher education through convenient evening, weekend and asynchronous formats.

. Scholastica is committed to providing all undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students an exceptional value for a comprehensive educational experience. Competitive tuition becomes a true investment as St. Scholastica continues to cultivate a dynamic intellectual environment built on academic excellence, rigor and integrity.

Driven by engaged learning, deep reflection and curricula that develop 21st-century skills, students gain more than knowledge — students develop the personal ambition and broad perspective that form the foundations for a fulfilling life and career.

St. Scholastica is a top school in Minnesota for social mobility – transforming the lives of first-gen students.

St. Scholastica Land Acknowledgement

We would like to acknowledge that we are on the traditional lands once home to the Dakota, then the Gitchi Gammi Anishinaabeg (Lake Superior band Ojibwe).

The Sisters of St. Scholastica Monastery recognize that our rich Benedictine story does not begin with the “daisy farm” and acknowledge that we gather on the ancestral lands of the Anishinaabe, specifically the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Anishinaabe, Nagaajiwanaang, meaning “where the water stops.” We recognize the past and present and honor the future of the traditional peoples of this land. 

. Scholastica, guided by our Benedictine values, commits to growing our relationship with the original inhabitants of this land so that our community can grow stronger together. We are called to learn about the rich history, culture and contributions that have historically been suppressed in telling the story of America. We recognize this land’s original stewards before this beautiful educational institution took shape.
