Minnehaha Academy

Minneapolis, MN

The South Campus of Minnehaha Academy is located along the Mississippi River and Minnehaha Parkway, serving a growing Pre-K to 8th grade student population.

Kodet Architectural Group was asked to evaluate the campus buildings and grounds to enhance the educational goals of the school, upgrade deficiencies in the older buildings, and to organize the campus’ unique site for visibility, safety, and educational programming. The plan included new classrooms, new main offices located at the entry, and a chapel overlooking Minnehaha Creek.

Kodet designed a lobby space and new main entry to connect the existing school with the addition. The size and locations of the classroom spaces were increased and reorganized to respond to the unique nature of the instructional programs.  The entire campus infrastructure was upgraded for technology and safety. Kodet developed a five phase schedule for the school to remain fully occupied throughout construction.
