Since its inception the school and staff have been devoted to creating a rigorous and challenging academic environment for each of its students, providing them an opportunity to pursue their academic aspirations through college. Students gain up to 1.5 years of academic growth for every year they are in our classrooms.
This level of growth is only possible through the tireless efforts of a staff and board of directors that have created a year-round academic calendar with an extended school day to best serve the students in the community.
The 2016-17 school year, starting on Aug. 22, will mark continued growth at the school as St. Louis College Prep adds a 10th grade, expands support and teaching staff and lays the final groundwork for its planned dual enrollment program.
In 2017-18 St. Louis College Prep plans to have its new 11th graders taking college level classes on area college campuses with the goal of every scholar graduating with a number of college credits and some students achieving their Associates Degree before graduation. This unique approach to dual-enrollment will give St. Louis College Prep scholars valuable experience on college campuses while still having the school's support staff as a safety net, giving the scholars a clear advantage when they continue their college career.
