Welcome to the Minnesota Association of Secondary School Principals (MASSP). We are a professional educational association of over 1,300 active and retired secondary and middle school administrators who seek to grow professionally and to effect positive change in our world today.

MASSP is an affiliate of the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), based in Reston, Virginia.

Minnesota Association of Secretaries to the Principals (MASP) is an affiliate of our organization. They are a professional educational association intended to provide in-service training, networking opportunities, professional development programs, and peer support.

Minnesota Association of Student Councils (MASC), and the Minnesota Association of Honor Societies (MAHS), are two student organizations affiliated with MASSP. They exist to provide member high school and middle school students, and their advisors, the opportunity to participate in leadership activities and other events to better themselves and their student organizations.
