SPP International Scholars Program

Since 2003, St. Paul Preparatory (SPP), served as the flagship school of the Nacel International School System (NISS).

Now, thanks to a partnership between NOD and Hill-Murray (H-M), a Catholic Benedictine prep school in Maplewood, Minnesota, current SPP students can enroll at H-M through our new SPP International Scholars Program, an innovative, personalized, and flexible learning opportunity for students with strong interests in specific learning outcomes.

For Students

H-M offers you a beautiful, more traditional campus and all the benefits and resources of a modern American high school. You will have the opportunity to participate in over 30 clubs and 15 sports, as well as personalized one-on-one college advising, with help in everything from essay writing to college tours to scholarship assistance.

Who Will I Live With?

Much like with SPP, international students will live with carefully screened and selected host families during their time at H-M. These families will be recruited by NOD representatives, which means they have a trusted contact to assist with any issues that may arise. Host families also have access to advisors, a travel coordinator, and all NOD staff, should they need support during the program.
