Ask St. John’s Prep senior Nick Haeg for some of his favorite German words and he’ll be more than happy to give you a sample.

He's an All-Star track athlete at St. Cloud Christian School, but Senior Brendon Jones has bigger things in mind after he graduates: putting his life at risk to protect others through law enforcement. Whether it's through his long-term goals or being a team captain for the Kids' Ministry Team at Joy Christian Center, Jones says he's always had a natural desire to serve and give back to others.

She may only be a sophomore, but Saint John’s Prep student Grace Knoblach has already taken part in well over a dozen on-stage performances. Grace put countless hours into playing Peter Pan, a character she called both challenging and rewarding.
With half a dozen classmates often admiring her creations in class, Cathedral junior Ramona Kuhn says she’s had an endless eagerness to create art her entire life. She's created so much art over the years that her father built shelves at home to hold her pieces.
