WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN US!
Nova Classical Academy is about as serious about fun as we are about educating our K−12 students. Our teaching is rooted in the classical foundations of Western civilization, and we are just about to finish putting down our own roots. This spring marks the completion of our first academic year in a brand new building in the Victoria Park neighborhood of the West 7th District of St. Paul. When you run or walk with us on May 17, you’ll be in for a celebration!
Non scholae sed vitae discimus | We learn not for school, but for life.
We hope to inspire a lifelong love of exercise for students, faculty, family, and friends – including you! Join us and help us show how fitness is fun – right outside our new building overlooking the Mississippi River Valley!
All race proceeds benefit the students of Nova Classical Academy.
