Mr. Dan Woodle
Principal, Bloomington Campus

Hello SHPA Bloomington Campus students and families!

I am very excited to join the staff at Seven Hills Preparatory Academy as the Principal for the 2017-2018 school year. I have come to Seven Hills after serving as the Elementary Principal in O’Neill, Nebraska for the past 4 years.  Previous to that position I was a classroom teacher for 11 years with the Brandon Valley School District in Brandon, SD.

Having grown up in Minnesota, I could not be more excited to be moving home and joining a group of students and staff that earned Seven Hills Preparatory Academy a top 10 ranking amongst elementary schools in the state of Minnesota via, for their achievement during the 2016-2017 school year.  We will continue to build on this success as we look to grow our students through our rigorous Classical education.

I look forward to meeting all the students and families here at SHPA and helping to prepare each child to become a strong citizen and a life-long learner.

Mrs. Carolyn Farrell
Principal, Richfield Campus

My name is Carolyn Farrell and I am the new Principal of the Richfield Campus. I am so excited to be in this new role and want to welcome each of you to the 2017-2018 school year. This year will be my seventh year at Seven Hills Preparatory Academy. I spent the first three years working with the Special Education team as a Special Education administrator, the next two in the role of Associate Principal, and last year served as Interim Principal of the Bloomington Campus. During this time, I was fortunate to be part of the administrative team that maintained and developed systems and routines and curricular programming for the success of Seven Hills. My background includes working with teams, including teachers and parents, to successfully grow our mission to engage students in strong citizenship and lifelong learning.

At Seven Hills, we engage students in a rigorous Classical education, and prepare each one for life-long learning. I will continue to work diligently to uphold the mission established at Seven Hills by building strong relationships with parents, student, staff and community partners. I look forward to connecting with the Richfield community. Together, we will continue to demonstrate excellency in our educational programs.

I anticipate a great year and encourage you to contact me should you have any questions or suggestions. My office at the Richfield Campus is on the first floor by the main office.

All of us at the Richfield Campus look forward to seeing our students and their families this fall.
