The College of St. 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 undergraduate and graduate 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.

The College of St. 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.
