Shattuck-St. Mary's School is a college preparatory co-educational boarding and day school located in Faribault, Minnesota. Founded in 1858, Shattuck-St. Mary's takes pride in its long tradition of guiding students to be strong in character, mind, body and spirit. Located just 45 miles south of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, our historic 250-acre campus brings together a diverse student population representing the cultures and heritages of students from 38 states and 34 countries. We offer students the opportunity to pair a challenging and motivating academic program of study with a focused concentration in athletics or the arts. Passionate athletes may seek admission to one of our four sports Center of Excellence programs in figure skating, golf, ice hockey and soccer. Our graduates go on to excel at many of the nation’s premier colleges and universities as well as distinguishing themselves within their chosen field of expertise.
