Minnehaha Academy Reimagined

Minnehaha Academy will honor the past and pay respect to the tragic events of August 2, 2017
with a newly-designed 21st Century learning environment responsive to students' academic,
social and emotional needs. The plan consists of a reconstructed and renovated Upper School,
a newly-built Middle School and re-imagined Lower School. We can only achieve this with your help,
and ask that you prayerfully consider supporting our campaign.

A Bold Vision

Trusting in our faithful Savior, our hope and our strength, Minnehaha Academy will use its unforeseen circumstances, unprecedented opportunity, elevated profile and future-focused momentum as a springboard for growth, transformation and increased Kingdom impact.

—Dr. Donna Harris, President, Minnehaha Academy

Our Goal

The Together We Rise campaign goal is incredibly bold and is a direct response to the vision cast
for a 21st Century learning environment focused on increasing our community's Kingdom impact.
You can track the progress of the campaign here. Together We Rise.

Campaign Case For Support

Naming Opportunities

A gift to the Together We Rise Campaign is an opportunity to help shape and elevate learning
environments for students born and unborn. Your gift presents a unique opportunity to be
permanently recognized on our campus. We encourage interested donors to take advantage
of these opportunities through an outright gift or through one that is pledged for up to five years.
The Together We Rise Campaign will provide an array of new and renewed facilities
that can be named. Interested individuals, corporations, families, foundations
and other groups are invited to contact the Advancement Office for more information.
