We Will Build DISCOVERY TRAIL This Summer!

With Funds raised from:

What DISCOVERY Trail Will Look Like...


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 $100,000.

Funds raised will be allocated to building a trail and outdoor classroom space on campus. We will also purchase various classroom enrichment tools include: the annual lease on our 500+ student chromebooks, books and primary sources, as well as an annual subscription to Albert IO, an online AP review tool.

Over the years, this event has raised over $750,000 for academics at St. Croix Prep.

Let’s continue to 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.

The Distances and Grade Levels

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