Classes begin Sept. 3 at the College of St. Scholastica’s new campus in Sartell.

The new campus is located at 137 23rd St. South, Sartell. Classes and offices will be housed in a 34,000 square foot building on a three-acre lot. The building will be shared with Resource Training and Solutions and Strack, a construction company.


The College of St. Scholastica’s new campus is located at 137 23rd St. South, Sartell.

It will house St. Scholastica’s programs previously located at the St. Cloud campus on Second St. South and provide space for new initiatives. Current programs offered in St. Cloud focus on business, technology, education and health care.

“From the classroom standpoint, we have better space utilization to make a more pleasant student experience,” said Rick Butte, regional director for the College of St. Scholastica.

The new building will also have a lounge area, and the location will allow better building signage, Butte said. It will also provide space for the school to host more campus and community events.

St. Scholastica and Resource Training and Solutions will both have classrooms on the first floor. The schools will also be able to rent spaces from each other. The second floor will house offices for Strack and Resource Training and Solutions.

The St. Cloud campus has worked with Resource Training and Solutions for classroom arrangements since St. Scholastica opened its St. Cloud campus in 2002. The partnership works well because Resource Training and Solutions offers primarily day classes and the St. Cloud campus of St. Scholastica has offered mainly evening classes, Butte said.

With the option of renting rooms from Resource Training and Solutions, the Sartell campus has more than doubled its St. Cloud classroom space, Butte said.

St. Scholastica’s St. Cloud campus opened in 2002 with management and organizational behavior programs. Since then it expanded its offerings to include more management, health, education and technology classes. Many of its classes are offered online.

Founded by Benedictine sisters, St. Scholastica’s main campus is in Duluth. Other campuses are in Brainerd, Rochester and St. Paul.

A grand opening blessing and celebration for the Sartell campus will be held at 4:30-6:30 p.m. Sept. 16. Attendees can tour the campus and learn more about its offerings and updates. For more information contact: Katie Wayne at 877-287-8740 or
