The Lion Paw

As we continue to celebrate the 20th year of Prep’s historic journey, I proudly unveil our newest logo – my Paw!

Why my Paw? - The Lion Paw symbolizes our enduring strength and unwavering commitment to excellence. It captures the essence of courage, determination, and leadership; and reminds us of our milestones, challenges and successes.

Our students leave their indelible imprints on our community, so with this logo we honor their courage, determination, and leadership. They have taken steps of growth, discovery, and transformation that propel them on a path filled with endless possibilities.

The Lion Paw is a symbol of our unity and strength – a journey we will continue, fierce and unyielding, as we write the next chapters of our storied saga.

Buy Lion Paw Merch!

You can buy St. Croix Prep Spirit Wear online with the lion paw logo!

Lion Paw window clings will be available to purchase in the main office.

Updated Food Truck

Our concessions trailer will soon be getting a new look! 3M worked with co-owners Jim and Scott Schulte of Modernistic, who donated the printing of the wrap film. Jim Schulte is a St. Croix Prep alumni parent.

Thank you to Modernistic and 3M for their generous donation!

Schools today focus on giving children an education to help them get a job or gain acceptance to a college. We’re not this kind of school – our purpose far exceeds this.

We don’t just prepare students for a job or college, we prepare young people for life.

We partner with parents who are invested in their child’s future, and are committed to their children not just surviving in life, but thriving in life.

We combine a classical education with our culture of character to help children not just reach their career or educational goals, but to reach their life goals.

St. Croix Prep. Prep for Life.

How We Prep:

K-12 Environment

One place to call home.

One building, managed by one administrative team, allows for a tightly integrated curriculum scripted with intentional scope and sequence beginning in kindergarten through twelfth grade.

You Won't Get Lost

You Are Familiar.

With a small enrollment, all students will receive personalized attention, permitting a low student/teacher ratio and membership in a mutually supportive community of learners.

Classical Education

Time Tested.

St. Croix Preparatory Academy was founded on a classical model of education, grounded in the time-tested methodology of the Trivium. Our model focuses on providing students with the lifelong educational tools to learn and think for themselves.


Preparing For Life.

St. Croix Preparatory Academy purposefully sets high expectations for all students, staff, and parents. The school places more emphasis on character development, respect, self-organization, responsibility, self-discipline and leadership than a traditional public school.

Paideia Seminars

Thinking Put Into Practice.

The Paideia Seminar is a formal discussion in which the leader asks open-ended questions. Within the context of the discussion, students listen closely to the comments of others, think critically for themselves, and articulate their own thoughts and their responses to the thoughts of others.

Under Construction

Please note: We are in the process of updating our faculty directory over the summer and thus some information may be out of date.
