The school was established in 1993, as a consolidated school by bringing together the parishes of Holy Name, Holy Rosary, Incarnation, St. Albert the Great and St. Stephen’s schools. Risen Christ serves a predominantly Latino student body and the families have average household incomes of around $30,000. Many are immigrants from Ecuador and Central America, along with some East African and Asian families as well.
Risen Christ's leadership continue to strive for excellence and reach out to partners in many ways. Volunteers donate their time and treasure through their home parishes and the AmeriCorps VISTA program. Principal Liz Ramsey has also collaborated with national organizations to ensure the strength of the school's instruction by having the program be evaluated by the Center for Applied Linguistics (CAL) in 2016. This was in addition to being reaccredited through the Minnesota Non-Public Accrediting Association (MNSAA). Their recommendations were included in the strategic plan for the next seven years. They are currently working with the SEARCH Institute to improve motivation and practice growth mindset language a develop growth mindset skills with the middle school students. This has been proven to increase academic success in teenagers.
