  • 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 in college.

  • Special Education: "We offer full special education services and currently 15% of our scholars qualify for special education. We have a 'push in' philosophy."
  • Parent Involvement: "Parent involvement is an integral portion of our school's success, and we seek to increasingly integrate parents into the culture of our school through not only communication with their own child, but through volunteer opportunities in the school.
