Since 1958, St. Croix Lutheran Academy has been preparing young people to be outstanding citizens who know their savior Jesus Christ and achieve at high levels spiritually, intellectually, and physically. As a Christian school, SCLA takes great care in providing a Christ-centered, Bible-based education in a supportive, student-focused community.
