Located in the Minneapolis metropolitan area but maintaining a
national academic reputation, The Blake School is an independent,
nonsectarian, coeducational day school for students in
pre-kindergarten through grade 12. Founded in 1900, The Blake
School has the advantage of three campuses each with its own
facilities designed for specific ages, schedules, and activities.
Students are from almost 50 communities around the Twin Cities,
defining Blake as a truly metropolitan school. Blake students
aren’t just book-smart; they are also imaginative, analytical, and
empathetic. They excel as artists, athletes, and performers. They
think, solve problems, and create. Students graduate from Blake
prepared to make our world better – and more interesting.
