About Welcome


A Word from Headmaster Keith Phillips...
Welcome to Schaeffer Academy's website.  Schaeffer Academy is a K-12, independent, Christian, classical, private school in Rochester, Minnesota.  It was founded in 1993, and by God's grace, it has developed into a wonderful place.
We're committed to:
  • Academic Excellence.  We believe that Christ is truth, and academic excellence in pursuit of truth is important. Strong science and math education leads many of our graduates into engineering, science and medicine.  At Schaeffer Academy we give students the tools for lifelong learning, and our classical approach produces outstanding results. 
  • Artistic Appreciation.  We believe that God created beauty, and we who bear his image should appreciate and create beauty too.  For that reason, visual, musical and language arts are an integral part of our curriculum.
  • Character and Community.   We believe that Christian character and community are crucial. Faith is practical as well as intellectual. Our faculty, parents and students work in community to teach and learn Christian character. 
At Schaeffer Academy we are endeavoring to teach and live the permanent things: Truth, Beauty, and Goodness.  To experience Schaeffer Academy firsthand please call our office at 507-286-1050 to schedule a campus visit.  For questions, please call the school office or This email address is being protected from spambots.
