Making a Difference Together

Help us reach our $125,000 goal!

An Amazing $125,763!

About

The Marathon is not only a great day filled with outdoor activity and community building, we also use this event to close the funding gap between our school and other Stillwater public schools. St. Croix Prep does not receive any of the local tax levy funds that the local district receives. This ‘gap’ amounts to over $1.5 million per year. We must work together to close this funding gap for our students.

Our Goal for The Marathon is $125,000

Funds raised will be allocated to completing classroom built-in cabinets, a project that began with the 2016 Marathon. We will also purchase various classroom enrichment tools including: subscription to JSTOR (a digital library of academic journals and primary sources), subscriptions to Albert IO and Study Island (online review tools), and classical literature for classroom lending libraries.
Over the past six years, this event has raised over $640,000 for academics at St. Croix Prep. Purchases have included:

• LCD projectors for each classroom
• Classroom built-in cabinets
• 12 Mobile computer labs
• Textbooks

• Classroom literature
• Smartboards
• Student scholarships
• Field trips

Let’s work together to enrich our students’ classroom experience so that St. Croix Prep remains a place where our students develop their academic, character and leadership potential.

Upper School Running with the Lower School

We continue our tradition of Upper School/Lower School running buddies. This tradition generates camaraderie and nurtures our unique K–12 connections. Each Upper School advisory class will be partnered with a Lower School classroom. Upper School students will run alongside their Lower School buddies.

The Distances and Grade Levels

The Marathon is split into running distances by grade level. Upper school students will run the distance assigned to their lower school running buddies.
