Our Vision + Mission

Access envisions a vibrant St. Louis community where equity in education allows every child to think, dream, and achieve big.

Access propels middle school students who have been historically underserved through high school and on to college and career success with enrichment, counseling, and scholarships.


When you have someone like Ms. Amy, a college and career counselor, on your side, it makes everything easier. She was helpful in a thousand different ways.
