During the early 20th century, two schools were founded in Minneapolis to prepare students for elite colleges in the northeast: The Blake School for boys and Northrop Collegiate School for girls. A third school, Highcroft Country Day School serving coeducational students, was incorporated during the migration to Minneapolis suburbs. In 1974, the three schools merged to become The Blake Schools, with its first coeducational graduating in 1975.

    Camille Paglia (b. 1947)

    Culture, the acquainting ourselves with the best that has been known and said in the world, and thus with the history of the human spirit.
