In the fall of 2016, South St. Paul Public Schools partnered with the ISD 197 (West St. Paul, Mendota Heights, Eagan) and the Inver Grove Heights school districts, to share resources and expand career and college readiness (CCR) pathways for all students. This TriDistrict collaborative effort creates opportunities for students to explore different careers and learn about the many ways to earn college credits, degrees, or job-ready certifications while in high school.

In addition to career readiness, South St. Paul Public Schools remains focused on its current college readiness options for students which is still among the strongest pathways in the state:
The SSP School District is still the only place in Minnesota where a student can earn three diplomas during high school: a traditional high school diploma, an International Baccalaureate diploma and a two-year Associate of Arts Degree, all which can be achieved without stepping foot onto a college campus or paying for college credits.

Project Lead The Way
With the new Design Center at the Secondary building, we are expanding our Pre-Engineering curriculum (Project Lead the Way) to grades 6-10. The program creates integrated learning experiences, blending computer science, engineering, and more. Students engage in critical and creative thinking, building teamwork skills, and learning to try and try again when faced with challenges. Learn more.
