SARTELL – It’s was 100 years ago this year that sisters from St. Benedict in St. Joseph traveled to Duluth and founded the College of St. Scholastica.  Today (Monday) officials from the Duluth campus were in Sartell to break ground on a new facility here.

President Larry Goodwin says the school has changed over the years, and since the 1980’s has had more of a focus on non traditional students.

St. Scholastica has actually been in St. Cloud for 10 years already, but officials say the new building will give them more of a presence and identity locally.

The new school will be located just off Highway 15 in Sartell.   Construction on the new building is already underway.  Their current building is at the corner of 2nd Street and Waite Avenue in St. Cloud.

The College of St. Scholastica has campuses in St. Cloud, Rochester, Brainerd and St. Paul, as well as their main campus in Duluth.   A majority of their students are at their main campus in Duluth.  St. Cloud has about 125 students that come to their building, with about another 250 students who take online classes.

St. Scholastica will lease space in the new building, which will be about 80 percent larger than their current facility.  They hope to move in by the fall of next year.

They offer accelerated online and hybrid degree programs in accounting, nursing, education, and more.
