St. Croix Lutheran High School opens new 152-bed dormitory

St. Croix Lutheran High School and Middle School opened its new 152-bed dormitory on Friday, May 29.

The new, three-story dormitory replaces two current on-site dormitories that house 50 students each and is the largest single building project in the school’s 57-year history, totaling $6.9 million. The 495 student body includes 117 international students from 15 countries on five continents, many of which reside on campus with resident American students in the dormitories.

Dorm amenities include bright, double-occupancy rooms outfitted with beds, under-bed storage, closet space, desks, and chairs. Each room has its own temperature control and screened windows, and many overlook Thompson Lake which borders the school’s property. The secure building contains cameras on each floor, personalized key fobs, digital sign-in boards, and six full-time dormitory supervisors who live in the building. Other features of the dormitory include a fully-staffed cafeteria, large dining area overlooking the lake, student study-lounges on each wing, a lower-level game room, and vending and laundry facilities.

SCL is replacing the current dormitories as part of a strategic initiative to restructure and improve the building and grounds. Plans to add an updated fine arts center, practice gymnasium, and updated front entry are also in the works.
